On the 8th of September the shopping heart of Sydney lit up for a night of fashion and entertainment events, part of the internationally held Vogue Fashion Night Out 2012.
I was there with my camera in hand and on my highest wedges to better see through the crowd and document the event. This is how it went.
The night developed under the Tower of Sydney, the high-density shopping area of the city.
Most shops offered Champagne and canapes to the costumers, together with special discounts and gifts with purchases.
Exhibitions, promotional events and themed decorations in the beautiful Strand Arcade.
The luxury lingerie boutique IM displayed pieces from their collections on live models.

The beautiful fashion designer Anaessia was also in her Strand Arcade flagship store.
Entertainment meets fashion with these beautiful dancers from Rythm Brazil – it’s instant headpiece envy!
Let’s not forget the focus of the night: fashion! Retailers had the opportunity to present their recently arrived spring collections. (picture taken at The Corner Shop)

What’s a Vogue Fashion Night Out without Vogue Fashion Director? Stunning Christine Centenera from Australian Vogue was busy all night with interviews and appearances.
And of course, on-and-behind-the-scenes queen was the glamorous, respected, hard-to-get, honorable Australian Vogue Editor in Chief Edwina McCann.
