One of my favourite shopping nights of the year is here which means it’s time to start warming up those credit cards. Who doesn’t love a see-ya-later-winter-and-hello-spring shopping spree? Thankfully, I’ve landed home from my recent European travels just in time to catch the abundance of savings & giveaways on offer at this year’s Vogue American Express Fashion’s Night Out (VAEFNO). As per usual, there are plenty of reasons to get involved in the night.
This year, VAEFNO is also timed to kick off Melbourne’s Spring Fashion Week so it’s sure to be a blockbuster few days ahead. Do you need to pencil – I mean permanent marker – in the dates? For Melbournians it’s all happening on Friday September 1st (hello Spring!) & in Sydney you can hit the shops on Thursday September 7th.
Now as an avid jetsetter and lover of all things fashion, this year I am incredibly excited to be
announced as an official partner of American Express, a company that I have admired and trusted throughout my infinite travels across the globe. Of course, there are always a few perks that come with being an American Express member & naturally it gets a little sweeter at VAEFNO where you will receive the full VIP shopping experience. As an American Express card member you will gain access to the exclusive American Express Invites Lounge which is where I will be putting my feet up between in-store purchases with refreshments, nibbles and maybe even a quick touch up at the Toni & Guy hair bar. Now that’s what I call shopping in style.
If you’re hitting up the Melbourne event be sure to stop by the iconic Bourke Street Mall as American Express together with Vogue, have transformed the concrete strip into an electric floral wonderland with fresh blooms saturating the city. With so much happening, why not plan your night ahead of time here.
Be sure not to miss this unforgettable annual event and treat yourself to some retail
