This week the Adelaide Fashion Festival is finally happening, which also means the highly-anticipated Vogue Festival will be on this Friday the 13th.
Over the past few weeks we’ve given you outfit inspo from some of the fab Rundle Mall retailers, and this handy article which tells you everything you need to know about what special offers are on the table and the prizes up for grabs.
But there’s so much more to get excited about. Anyone who’s been to Vogue American Express Fashion’s Night Out in Melbourne or Sydney knows there’s loads more than just shopping to do.
If you’re one of the lucky few who managed to score a free ticket to the Myer runway, you’ll get the chance to see supermodel Jennifer Hawkins do what she does best and strut her stuff down the catwalk. For those who missed out on tickets, you can still catch a glimpse of the Aussie beauty as she launches the Vogue Festival under the Gawler Place Canopy at 12pm with the Editor-in-Chief of Vogue Australia, Edwina McCann.
Shopping can be an exerting exercise, but Dyson and Media Makeup will be hosting pop-ups to fix all your beauty needs. Complimentary hair styling sessions and bespoke tutorials will be on held at the Dyson Supersonic Hair Lab, while Media Makeup will be there to touch up your makeup and pop on a fab set of Model Rock lashes to keep you looking fresh.
Fancy a classy game of bocce? The Daily Edited are putting together an Instagrammable bocce lawn where you can win loads of prizes, all of which can be monogrammed, of course.
Patches are all the rage this season, and Levi’s are huge advocates for that trend. Head along to their store to have your fave pair of Levi’s patched and personalised, while listening to live music from local band Wanderers.
Espresso martinis, champagne and frozen treats will be available throughout the mall from the @em espresso martini van, at the Veuve Cliquot pop-up bar and at the Proud & Punch pop-up to keep you going throughout the evening.
If you’re keen to start planning your purchases for Friday, Rundle Mall have just popped a handy guide to the sales on their website. Featuring discounts ranging from 15-30% off stores like Cue, Kookai and Zimmerman, as well as loads of gift with purchases, now is the time to buy that dress you’ve been saving for.
We can’t wait to see you all down Rundle Mall this Friday! We’ll be Instagramming and posting to Facebook live on the day, so come say hi if you see us around!
