Vogue loves MCR

London Fashion Week. 

We'll never tire of hearing those three little words.
A biannual event that really, if you're reading this - a fashion blog - should already be well and truly noted within your calendar. It's the four days (rather than the suggested week) whereby everyone suffers from a case of obsessive compulsive fashion disorder. Runway shows aplenty; the world has been shown what it'll be wearing ahead of Spring/Summer 2014 and it's clean, white, minimal and... white.

But hold on, why should it be London who always get to have the fun?

There's that age old question that escapes the lips of almost every British citizen residing within a postcode north, and perhaps slightly to the west, of the capital. Don't get us wrong, we adore visits to the big city with it's Big Ben and even bigger Topshop, but we just can't justify how one place that doesn't even like gravy, can continue to host all of the major fashion events.

Vogue, it would appear, have been channeling in on a similar brainwave.

In just less than a month, the Vogue team will be swapping London's Hackney cabs for the cobbled streets of Manchester, as the city takes the role of honorable host for the Vogue Fashion Night Out; a chance for the creme dela creme of shops, galleries, restaurants and museums to show London just what us northerners are made of.
"Manchester's importance to fashion is unquestionable. Bringing Fashion's Night Out to its streets is the next logical step in the evolution of Fashion's Night Out in the UK. London has witnessed tens of thousands of shoppers joining the fun and we're looking forward to sharing this experience with a new audience."

Shining the style spotlight right where it's wanted; an abundance of names have already been added to the list of participants who will be setting out to make the evening a hit, including that of Selfridges, Harvey Nichols and The Avenue's Mulberry. 

We knew there was another reason to love Autumn and it wasn't just about being able to wear our big coats.

Thursday 10th October - Save the date and we'll see you up north.
