Fashion designer Henry Holland stars at Vogue Fashion's Night Out
CELEBRITY fashion designer Henry Holland was just one of the stars who turned out for a shopping extravaganza.
The House of Holland creator, from Ramsbottom, joined a host of famous faces and fashion fans at the inaugural Vogue Fashion’s Night Out in Manchester.
The 30-year-old met up with model pal Daisy Lowe, kitted out in a Stella McCartney mohair sweater, at Selfridges and helped to kick off the event at the Hugo Boss launch party.
The former Bury Grammar School pupil, whose H! by Henry Holland is stocked at Debenhams, said: “I think it’s really exciting to be here with all this high fashion.
“For an institution like Vogue to choose Manchester as the first place to do Fashion Night Out, outside of London, is amazing.”
The global shopping event was launched in New York in 2009 by Vogue’s editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour, to lift the sombre mood during the recession and jump start the retail economy.
In the UK, it is usually held in London, but moved to Manchester for the first time this year.
Fashion fan Amber Tesia, aged 36, from Bolton, an author, freelance writer and lifestyle blogger, said: “Seeing designer Matthew Williamson float around Spinning-fields to Jameela Jamil DJ in Selfridges was beyond cool and confirmed Manchester’s place on the fashion map.
“We Northerners know how to throw a lean, mean, stylish party.”
Stores threw open their doors to host a range of special events and celebrities spotted enjoying the evening included Leigh actress Sarah Jayne Dunn, who posed with a giant pair of 10ft high heels in the Arndale Centre, and Bury-born Coronation Street star Brooke Vincent.
British Vogue editor Alexandra Shulman travelled to the city for the event and Radio 1 DJ Jameela Jamil took to the decks at Selfridges — which offered spray tans, Chanel manicures and cocktails to shoppers.
Pixie Geldof also did a DJ set at H&M, The Maccabees performed at Emporio Armani and Made in Chelsea’s Oliver Proudlock and Jamie Laing were greeted by a gaggle of fans at Harvey Nichols Manchester.
