05 Apr Vogue Festival 2014
Following two days packed with inspiring talks, fashion fun and enough tweets to keep the #VogueFestival hashtag trending all weekend, the Vogue Festival 2014 in association with Harrods has drawn to a close. On day two, the likes of Naomi Campbell, Franca Sozzani, Karlie Kloss, Edie Campbell, Jourdan Dunn, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Sarah Burton, Grayson Perry and Nick Knight all took to the stage, while a host of fashion, styling and beauty makeovers and masterclasses kept us all entertained in-between.
The third Vogue Festival will take place on Saturday 29 and Sunday 30 March 2014, this year in partnership with Harrods. The two-day extravaganza promises to be even bigger than its two predecessors, and will be held at the Queen Elizabeth Hall at the Southbank Centre.
“I’m delighted that Harrods is going to be our partner for the Vogue Festival 2014,” said Vogue editor Alexandra Shulman. “We’ve already been discussing some great new ideas, and with their well-known commitment to fashion and style, I’m looking forward to a terrific relationship.”
Last year’s festival saw some of the world’s biggest fashion talents come together for a weekend of interviews and discussions, including Victoria Beckham, Donatella Versace, Michael Kors, Paul Smith, Mario Testino, Vivienne Westwood, Alber Elbaz, Alexa Chung and Cara Delevingne. The line-up for the 2014 event is yet to be announced, but expect plenty of entertaining and inspiring star guests, as well as workshops, performances and makeovers. Tickets will go on sale in mid-February.
“We are delighted to be partnering with Vogue for the Vogue Festival 2014,” said Chiara Varese, Harrods director of customer relationship management and personal shopping. “The fashion world is artistic, inspirational, innovative and sophisticated, but most of all it’s exciting and fun. We look forward to adding to the unique customer experience for which this event has become well known and best loved. This natural partnership between our two brands will bring together in an innovative way the world’s leading influencers, designers and fashion-savvy crowd, in luxury style.”
