21 September 2010
I'm sure many of you agree, any excuse to party is a good one.
And if you've not had your fill of LFW parties or if you want your first taster of VIP Fashion Week treatment, this will be right up your street.
The Portman Village 'Summer Lounge' street party is tomorrow, Wednesday 22nd September, from 12 noon until 8pm.
In the heart of London but with a village-feel, the street party is supposed to unite a local vibe with global flavours and international talent. Guests are invited to indulge, eat, drink and relax in what promises to be a rather eclectic event.
There will be wine tasting, live music, poetry readings, comedy performances and DJ's throughout the day, as well as special events in stores. I'm going to be heading down to Greenhouse Hair salon for tips on how to put your hair up and blow-drying (much-needed tutorials in my case).
At the event you will be able to pick up a Portman Village Club loyalty card entitling you to discounts of 10-25% on products and services from the shops and restaurants in the area.
Most hotly anticipated, however, is bound to be Osman Yousefzada's sample sale at his studio. I'll be elbowing everyone else out of the way for a chance to get my mitts on an Osman original at 75% off.
Lastly, to conclude the day there will be a Designer Jumble Sale in association with ON/OFF. The sale starts at 12 at the Church of Anunciation, off Old Quebec Street, and ends with a charity auction at 8pm. All money raised will be going to the Pakistan Flood Relief.
