Stylist Live

Could this be the ultimate Christmas shopping experience?

Our annual Festival of Inspiration, Stylist Live, is back from the 9-11 November at Olympia London. With our boutique pop-up shopping hall, featuring 100s of brands, it’s the perfect place to do your Christmas shopping. 

Christmas is officially round the corner, and as we step into November we’re all thinking the same thing: it’s time to start Christmas shopping.

Of course, shopping for loved ones is (theoretically) a lovely task. Searching high and low for that perfect present or special trinket which shows you really know someone can feel really festive, and not to mention rewarding when you know you’ve nailed it. 

But there’s one thing that seriously kills a cheery buzz, and that’s the small fact that everyone else is trying to do the same thing. At the same time. In the same shops.

How many times have you rocked up to your local shopping centre, jacked up on pumpkin spice latte and Christmas music, only to be elbowed out the store by other frantic shoppers? We’ll reckon it’s enough times to put you off the whole thing together. 

We think we may have the perfect solution. Stylist Live, our annual Festival of Inspiration, brings together over 100 speakers across four stages to deliver inspirational and empowering talks and workshops, as well as a live catwalk featuring A/W 2018’s must-try trends.

But do you know what else is in store for lucky attendees? A curated market place of all of our favourite brands. AKA the perfect place to do all your shopping in one go.

We’ve brought our famous The Style List pages to life by asking 250 well-known and independent brands and boutiques to join us, setting up shop for the weekend to not only introduce you to new products and thoughtful Christmas gift ideas, but special discounts and free treatments. 

To give you a taster of who you can expect to see there think: Bailey Nelson, Birchbox, Bijou Bijou and Emily Brooks, alongside the likes of Floral Street, Curly by Nature and Future Female. From haircare to homewares, independent jewellers to artists, accessories to fashion - we’ve got you covered, whether you want to get a gift for someone else or yourself. 

As well as all these pop-ups all being in one space (so no traipsing around the high street), our delicious Gourmet on the Go food area is so close by, you’ll be able to stop for sustenance and a gin and tonic whenever you need a break. 

Tickets for Stylist Live start at £15, but if you fancy taking your experience to the next level (and getting a free facial, make-over and beauty-filled goodie bag) you can go VIP. 

VIP ticket holders get exclusive use of our VIP Lounge, are pampered with a free beauty treatment, get a goody bag worth over £150, can 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.
