Stylist Live 2017 is taking place at Olympia London from the 10th to the 12th of November. Launched by the magazine Stylist in 2015, this year’s event is expected to draw 21,000 visitors. Jacob Dickinson reports
Founded by Stylist Magazine two years ago, Stylist Live has quickly become one of the most exciting events in the London fashion scene despite being only two years old. As well as fashion and beauty, speakers at the event often touch on issues concerning politics and social justice.
Over the 3 days of the festival, visitors should expect a jam-packed line-up of brands, influencers and fashion exclusives.
The event is also set to feature over 80 inspiring and empowering talks across three days. Talk topics range from ‘why are we scared to talk about race’ to ‘put down your phone and flirt’ hosted by some of the UK’s most influential women and men.
Not only is the festival an opportunity to see your favourite public figures, the exhibition also encourages creatives to apply and put on their own exhibition – with the fashion industry being notoriously difficult to break into this could in fact be recognised as a ‘golden ticket’ with trend setters and influential individuals available in abundance. Not to mention that children under the age of 5 get free access.
Stylist Live 2017 also offers a unique shopping experience and is perfectly timed for Christmas, featuring over 200 unique independent stalls – offering fashion and jewellery, beauty, stationery, food and drink. In addition, all visitors will receive a complimentary drink with their ticket and can benefit from free sampling opportunities, beauty treatments and hair-styling.
Tickets can be purchased here on the official website. Tickets are sectioned into different levels (bronze, silver and gold) with the higher levels of tickets ‘unlocking’ more features visitors can access.
