We’re very excited to announce our first ever event, which we’re calling the Fashion’s Night Out Tweetup, on 8th September 2011.
What is it a tweetup?
Twitter + meet up = tweet up. It’s a idea invented by computer geeks to give people who talk on Twitter the chance to meet in person. And us fashion geeks are adding fashion to that equation because that’s what we’re all about. Using the hashtag #fashiontweetup we want to extend the invite to bring together as many people as possible. Whether you work in fashion, study fashion, blog about it, or just plain love it, come along to the tweet up and meet some like-minded people.
We realised that we know lots of really cool people on Twitter who we want to meet in person. Having learned that trying to meet up with them during London Fashion Week often proves very difficult because of hectic schedules, we thought a tweetup just before fashion week would be the perfect solution. We don’t like to think of it as networking per se, more a friendly social occasion, but if you make some valuable contacts too then that’s great.
Thursday 8th September from 6pm onwards. We’ve chosen that date because it also happens to be Vogue’s Fashion’s Night Out (but we’re not officially affliated with the event or anything). There will be hundreds of retailers taking part on nearby Oxford Street so we can combine shopping and socializing in perfect harmony.
The Red Lion, a good old fashioned pub just off Carnaby Street in Soho, central London. 14, Kingly St, London, W1B 5PP. Nearest tube is Oxford Circus. Click here for a map.
There will be us bloggers from Style and then some (Katie, Helen, Sophie and Sophie C) for sure, plus all the tweeple we can gather.
So spread the word – click attending here on the Facebook event, follow @style_thensome on Twitter for updates and, most importantly, get tweeting and retweeting with the hashtag #fashiontweetup so that others can get involved.
