Vogue American Express Fashion’s Night Out: On-Stage

From midday on Thursday 20th October, some of fashion’s biggest names will be taking to the stage for live performances, fashion and styling Q&As as well as seminars which will help to answer all your questions about the latest looks. Music lovers will want to be there at 12pm when the fashion extravaganza gets underway to catch a performance from KLP, one of our favourite Aussie artists or, if you’re heading in after work, get ready to boogie with a DJ set starting from 5pm.

Vogue American Express Fashion’s Night Out: CBD Takeover

Fashion is all about making a statement and that’s exactly what Vogue American Express Fashion Night Out will be doing on Thursday 20th October. For one night – and one night only! – the Sydney CBD will come alive with pumping tunes, flashing lights and fantastic fashion for a ‘90s block party. In collaboration with the City of Sydney, this free event will stretch from the Pitt Street Mall, through to the neighbouring Castlereagh, Market and George Street precincts. From 12pm to 9pm, you’ll be treated to fashion shows, in-store activations and special offers from some of our favourite brands, live music, Q&As from fashion experts including Kathryn Eismann star of Undressed and Vogue's very own Jessica Montague who will be taking to the stage to discuss dressing for success. 

While you’re in the mall, make sure you visit the AMEX Kiosk, take a picture at their photo moment wall and pick up a complimentary donut to snack on while you learn more about specific in-store activations or Card Member offers.

Vogue American Express Fashion’s Night Out: Live Runways

As you’d expect from fashion’s biggest night, the looks on the live runways are set to be the biggest showstoppers of the festival. With a catwalk running through Pitt Street Mall, Vogue and American Express will be showcasing the season’s best looks from the hottest Australian brands. Highlighting all the best trends, expect bold and bright looks from Zara, L’Idée Woman and Maje who are playing with hot pinks and electric blues and structured preppy looks from Camilla and Marc, Country Road, Decjuba and Sandro.

Plus, for the first time ever, small fashion brands will take centre stage thanks to the Shop Small Runway presented by Vogue Australia. Be among the first to catch a glimpse of the ‘next big thing’ in Australian fashion, with lines from first-time designers and small boutiques finding themselves elevated to the main stage thanks to the American Express Shop Small Program. Models will take to the runway for Shop Small at both 1:30pm and 6pm so make sure you make your way down to the hub to check out the show!
