Fashion's Night Out

Fashion's Night Out is back for the third year on 8th August and is taking place in 17 different countries! Celebrities and designers will be mingling with shoppers at the many after-hours events, or if you don't want to leave the house you can join in online. Visit for info on whats going on near you!

London Highlights:

Jonathan Saunders, Richard Nicoll, Simone Rocha, Michael Van der Ham and Bella Freud will all be talking to shoppers about their latest collections. To help celebrate the launch of her Lulu + Co collection, Lulu Kennedy will be holding an Hawaiian-themed evening - think Mahiki coconut rum shack, Hourglass makeovers and Richard Sloan on the decks.

Vidal Sassoon
The Vidal Sassoon salon on Monmouth Street is just one of the many new stores participating. They will be offering complimentary consultations, fringe trims, discount vouchers, product giveaways and a prize draw, all washed down with a glass of Pimms, of course.

At the Williamsburg store, local artist J. Penry will sketch portraits and play records for the opening of his exhibit of bird drawings. The trio of shops will give away tote bags emblazoned with one of Penry’s images and the Park Slope and Cobble Hill outposts will serve prosecco and cookies.

International Playground
This boutique collaborated with footwear brand Osborn to allow each of the designers it represents—Soulland, H Fredriksson, Mary Meyer, Study NY and Chromat—to create a limited-edition shoe especially for FNO.  The store is also throwing a Guatemalan-themed bash, complete with Illegal Mezcal cocktails and live performances.

Lomography Gallery Store
If you’ve ever been curious about what goes on behind the scenes at a clothing label, you’ll love checking out “From Start to Finish: The Analogue Process of Fashion.” Local designers— Rebecca Turbow, Samantha Pleet and Janet Kim of Graey and Hayden-Harnett—were provided with various Lomography cameras and films to document their design process. Each designer will also present three to four of her pieces.

JF & Son
To kick off its latest artist collaboration with Amy Yao, this textile-obsessed brand will be hosting a live performance by Yao, and unveil the 13-piece capsule collection of clothing and accessories. The first 150 guests will also walk away with an Amy Yao–designed tote bag containing a poster and a limited-edition Amy Yao x JF & Son lookbook.

Jessie James
Get a peek at owner Jessica Caulfield’s clothing line, which is debuting on FNO and will be exclusive to the tastemaking boutique.

The Fairest of Them All

DermaHA is a new skincare range designed for women in their 20s with fair and sensitive skin. The range contains delicate natural oils and key vitamins to nourish and care for your skin.

I have been using the cleanser, toner and moisturiser as a daily three-step regime. I have already noticed a difference since changing my skincare routine, my skin is clearer and the moisuriser under my foundation makes my sin look smoother and fresher.

The DermaHA range and also the Corina range for women over 40 are available exclusively from

DermaHA range between £19 and £47
Corina range between £19.50 and £69.95
