VFNO Thursday 8 September

On Thursday 8 September we went to Vogue's Fashion Night Out which was

All the shops in W1 and SW1 opened til 9 pm and most had champagne
if you didn't get down there - definitely remember for next year.

Here is what I call the HUB of VFNO where Burberry is ....

We bought our VFNO T Shirt here! Xx

Alistair Guy outside Burberry

Moving on down to the most Fabulous shop ever - LOUIS VUITTON MAISON
you must visit here if you have never been.  
Over 3 floors it is one hell of a Flagship Store.
I went to the opening and it can only be described as an Art Gallery with works by Gilbert and George and Damien Hirst (not to mention the LV Clothes).  It has what is perhaps the best Art Bookshop in London on the top floor.  A total FASHION ART experience.
