New York State of Mind: What to wear to our VAEFNO street party


In short, the Vogue American Express Fashion’s Night Out is our annual excuse to shop up a storm, with more exclusive one-night-only sales and shopping experiences than you could poke a sky high heel at. VAEFNO is coming to town on Thursday 29 August and let us tell you: it’s an event not to be missed. 

Unsurprisingly, the #1 place to soak up all the fashion action, buys and savings is Melbourne Central. We’ll be celebrating like nowhere else in the city, with an 11-hour non-stop New York street party taking over the centre.

We can prove it, too:
If you’ve ever been to one of our parties, you’ll know we take our fashion very seriously. Coming along? We’ve got your outfit sorted with three New York-themed looks you can be inspired by, or shop and wear right now.
