On September 14, Vogue brought its very own fashion fantasia to the West End – and now, everyone can tune in to watch the pages of the magazine come dramatically to life at Theatre Royal Drury Lane. Masterminded by BAFTA- and Olivier-winning director Stephen Daldry, show director Emily Burns and creative producer Fran Miller alongside the Vogue team, the evening ran the gamut of the performing arts – opera and ballet and theatre, oh my – with turns from a galaxy of stars ranging from Kate Moss to Sophie Okonedo, Ian McKellen to Stormzy.
Held at the beginning of London Fashion Week, the event was a celebration of the ever evolving, gloriously diverse arts scene in London, but also, a tribute to the capital’s fashion prowess. Contributing looks for the performers and guests? 16Arlington, Ahluwalia, Burberry, Charles Jeffrey LOVERBOY, Erdem, Maison Margiela and SS Daley, among dozens of other design luminaries.
Tickets, of course, were sold out, with 100 per cent of net ticket proceeds going to support performing arts organizations, including the National Theatre, the Royal Opera House, South Bank Sinfonia, and the Rambert dance company, but for those who were not able to make it on the night, Vogue World: London was livestreamed around the world. Followers could head to www.vogue.world to watch the main performance, then shop all of the looks from the night after the final bow.
