The Vogue 2016 Festival ran for 2 days on Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd of May 2016. As I had some other commitments on Saturday I decided to attend it on Sunday. The event was run in partnership with Harrods and over these 2 days there were a lot of amazing speakers and designers who shared their ideas and participated in some interesting debates. This year’s impressive line-up of speakers included: Alessandro Michele, Domenico Dolce & Stefano Gabbana, Kim Kardashian West, Charlotte Tilbury and Jenny Packham.
Venue and Theme:
The event theme was Vogue’s 100th anniversary. The festival was split between two venues: Vogue World venue which is located on the East Albert Lawn in Kensington Gardens and at the Royal Geographic Society which is located directly opposite. I took a train to High Street Kensington and both venues were only 10 minutes’ walk away.
Throughout both days of the Vogue Festival, at the additional fee (£40-80), all participants could attend a range of ‘Super tutorials’ with the best in the industry giving insights into the beauty and fashion.
Vogue World Festival Beauty Hall
The Vogue Festival presented some remarkable styling sessions from Vogue’s own fashion and beauty editors. In addition, there were lots of brands offering their signature makeovers i.e. Bobbi Brown, Tom Ford and Kérastase.
All attendees were able to get a digital copy of Vogue Cover with their photo on it. I love mine:
After a great afternoon at the beauty hall I was on my way to check what the Vogue Shop had to offer. You could find lots of the official Festival merchandise and collaborations including Dolce & Gabbana, Levi’s, Christopher Kane, J Crew and more.
There was a really stylish ‘Vogue Cafe’ on site serving some basic refreshments and some pastries:
Ticket prices varied from £25 for a one day entry ticket to £1000 for a ‘Gold Ticket’ that offered inclusive all-weekend access to every talk at the Vogue 100 Festival. In addition, each ticket included a 12-month subscription to the iPad and iPhone edition of Vogue.
