Fashion’s Night Out

The rainbow before the official launch of Vogue Fashion’s Night Out Sydney was a good sign but by the end of the evening that pot of gold had well and truly been emptied at more than 400 stores around the city.

Vogue Australia editor-in-chief Kirstie Clements, Fashion Targets Breast Cancer lead ambassador Collette Dinnigan and the Lord Mayor of the City of Sydney Clover Moore officially opened the retail revolution on the steps of MLC centre with models Samantha Harris, Rosemary Smith, Elyse Taylor and Rachel Rutt and designers such as Nicky and Simone Zimmermann, Kit Willow, Fleur Wood,Luke Sales and Anna Plunkett, Kym Ellery, Akira Isogawa and Gail Elliott.

Once the music stopped the shopping began. Cate Blanchett added Hollywood glamour to Giorgio Armani alongside Olympian Ian Thorpe. The rarefied atmospheres of Louis Vuitton and Hermès were exchanged for the pumping sounds of a nightclub, queues formed for a candy buffet at Tiffany & Co., designers were mobbed in David Jones and Myer’s ground floor became beauty central with Chanel nail polish flying of the shelves and Rebecca Twigley surrounded by admirers.

The boys took over Bally, with cognac keeping everyone cool, a photo shoot took place in Chanel and The Strand’s tiny stores were packed with people.

“I’m done,” Alex Perry said at eight o’clock as he headed for the David Jones escalator. “I came and I sold.” For the rest of us there was an hour of serious shopping ahead, and window shopping at Fairfax & Roberts and Emporio Armani.

Then came the Ivy where guests gathered to toast the night’s success and starting planning next year.
