If you don't know your Mary Katrantzou from your MK One, you wouldn't be alone. But if you wish your fashion senses were a bit sharper, Southbank Centre is offering an insight into the fashion industry this weekend at The Vogue Festival 2014.
Far from the catwalk-centric focus that one might expect from those well-heeled fashionistas at Vogue, the festival offers a programme of insightful talks and events about the fashion industry. Tickets for some events sold faster than McQueen sample pieces — predictably the Want To Work In Fashion? Masterclass sold out almost instantly — but at time of writing, there are last-minute tickets available for some events.
Find out what it's really like to be a model from big industry names including Jourdan Dunn and Rosie Huntington Whiteley, or witness a conversation between fashion legends Naomi Campbell and Franca Sozzani (Italian Vogue editor and UN ambassador). Alternatively, go to this talk about what great style is, and find out once and for all whether you have it. We fear our holey jeans have already provided us with the answer to that one.
