Everyone’s favourite freebie for girls, Stylist magazine, is putting together a London edition.
Having decided London is “the coolest capital in the world” (tell us something we don’t know), they’re celebrating with a one-off London Issue.
All this week, the Stylist team have been popping up in and around the capital to shoot fashion stories, learn insider tips, host a street style competition and more. The unique London Edition, created with the help of savvy Londoners, will be published on 27 June.
If you want to get involved, you can. This afternoon, they’re hosting a Street Style event in Unit 57 of the Boxpark Pop-Up Mall and on Brick Lane between 2pm and 6pm. If you think you’ve got what it takes, don your finest and you could be photographed by “street style wonderblogger” Michelle Bobb-Parris. If you get lost, follow @stylistmagazine #LondonEdition to track the team’s whereabouts.
If street style isn’t your thing, you can still take part. Pop along to the V&A’s fashion galleries between 5pm and 9pm this evening, where the magazine team are looking for top recommendations for where’s hot in West London. As well as meeting the girls behind the magazine, you can enjoy a cocktail at the pop-up Benugo bar, and receive a 2-4-1 voucher for the V&A’s current exhibition: Ballgowns: British Glamour Since 1950. If you’re early, you might even snag one of the 30 free V&A goodie bags up for grabs.
You can also get involved in a features meeting on Saturday morning at the Palace Theatre on Shaftesbury Avenue; or share your Shoreditch, Hoxton and Stratford tips at Rich Mix next Wednesday evening.
