It's that time of year again, when the meeting of the best Italian brands come together for Fashion Week in the world's four most glamorous cities: New York, Paris, London and Milan.
In Rome, it's all about the exciting Vogue Fashion's Night Out, and the 2014 edition, held last night, was a celebration of fashion and women. Proceeds from the sales of special products will sustain the "Solidea" association, which has been working towards women's protection and solidarity in Rome for a decade.
Make-up artists, cocktails, catwalks and giveaways, music, limited-edition Lavazza and Martini memorabilia, and exhibitions were on the evening’s menu of entertainment. The tempting Trident district boutiques were busy and buzzing until midnight. Many donned real life 'mannequins', strutting whichever way they wanted. Moda mayhem at its best.
The third edition of this exciting event, in association with the Comune di Roma and AltaRoma, gave everyone the chance to meet some of the most important designers and to purchase, among other things, special limited-edition items, VFNO t-shirts and Lavazza-designed coffee tins, exclusive to the event.
"We are delighted to return to Rome for the third time, a city with a unique heritage and an old town that has always welcomed with warmth and enthusiasm initiatives of Italian Vogue and the fashion world. As always, a portion of proceeds from sales will be donated to a project for the city, in particular, this year we will support shelters for women victims of violence and their minor children", said Vogue Italia's Franca Sozzani.
If you missed this particular Vogue night out, there will be more fashion events throughout the month in Rome and Milan.
Moreover, the renewed partnership between McArthurGlen and Italian Vogue means that you will find limited edition exclusive products created for VFNO at Castel Romano Designer Outlet on September 12 and 13, with music and entertainment, until 10 pm.
Vogue Fashion's Night Out Milan will be on the 16th of September 2014.
