For its fifth year, Vogue Fashion’s Night Out made its debut in Manchester. Mostly centred around the Arndale Centre, on the streets outside billboards and posters marked the event and the city’s fashion conscious turned out to see what all the fuss was about.

Inside the busy shopping centre it was business as usual but most of the shops got in on the act, displaying posters and many with various promotions taking place. A pop-up catwalk appeared and a huge pair of red shoes caught the attention of passers-by.

While inside the shop they could feast on the many portable stands which were serving crepes, popcorn and slush drinks. A trip upstairs saw drinks being mixed and there was even a booth where you could pop in for a spray tan.

It was successful foray out of London for Vogue’s Fashion’s Night Out and the city of Manchester came out, shopped, spent their money, partied and had a good time. Among the glamor, high heels and skin tight jeans a few protesters made their feelings known as they stood outside Harvey Nichols with their placards. They caught a few interested stares from passers-by who then went about their usual business.
