Our annual Festival of Inspiration, Stylist Live, is returning to Olympia London this November and tickets are now on sale. 

We’re so excited that Stylist Live is back and bigger than ever this year. With a greater focus on shopping, a brand new VIP offering and loads of our favourite celebrities hosting live panels and holding workshops, it’s weekend to mark on your calendar. 

One guest we’re delighted to confirm is TV presenter Katie Piper. We’ve always been huge fans of Piper’s boldness in speaking out about women’s issues, from refusing to be trolled about her postpartum body to rejecting the idea that getting married means she’s had her “happy ending,” reminding the media that there’s more to a woman’s future than getting a ring on her finger. 

Piper joined us at 2016’s Stylist Live, giving an inspiring and emotional talk during which she described (to a crowd hanging on her every word) how she came back from the brink after being attacked by a former partner with acid. Now, we’re delighted to welcome her back for this year’s event where she will be talking about the currency of kindness.

You can see Piper on our Spark Stage on Saturday (10 November) at 17:25 – 17:55 for a 30-min conversation about how vitally important it is to be kind to ourselves. 

Joining Piper will be over 100 other speakers, taking to our four stages across the weekend (and a new take on our inspirational workshops), in a re-imagined and exclusive closed space, Thrive Studio. 

We know you love The Style List, so once again we’ll be bringing it to life with a curated marketplace of 250 amazing brands, from independent jewellery brand Olivia and Pearl to cult skincare, Ren.

VIP ticket holders can take a break in our exclusive VIP Lounge, the ultimate day out. Be pampered with a free beauty treatment, rifle through your goody bag worth over £150, enjoy a bite to eat and sip on two free drinks. We’re spoiling you, right?

All tickets also include access to our Stylist Catwalk, where our editorial fashion team will be curating the latest a/w18 trends, shoppable straight from the high street.
