How to throw a fashion week hen party

New York Fashion Week SS 2017 kicked off last week and we’re taking tonnes of inspiration from it for cool hen parties. It’s hard to ignore the lure of fashion week. New season loveliness to gaze at, bloggers sharing what looks like the most fun, cool and glamorous time on their Instagram and Snapchat, wall to wall A-listers on the front row and the most up to the minute parties and events. What’s not to like! With that in mind we’ve put together some fashion week hen party ideas for inspiration on how to hen party like a group of catwalk pros, fashion bloggers and the FROW.

Dress code

Embrace your inner Anna Wintour and choose your favourite style to theme your party. If you’re going to keep it current and want the most on trend party for 2017, a new trench coat is a must and a shoulder reminiscent of your favorite ’80s dance flick! A BIG fur coat, large sun glasses and your red lips are sure to bring an instant fashion feel but here are some of the top trends for SS 2017 for more stylish and fashion hen party inspiration.

Statement Words

Words and slogans on clothing are everywhere! Check out Calvin Klein making their political statement. Whether you want yours to be political or just super sassy, team the statement top with a maxi skirt and wear with plenty of eyeliner.

Return of the 80s

The ’80s called, they want their shoulder pads back! With the Eighties revival comes the obligatory return of the power shoulder. This season, shoulders have taken on a modern feel. Play with proportion, by mixing peaked shoulder pads with a mini skirt or cropped trousers. Now is also the perfect time to raid your mother’s wardrobe and try pull out some traces of the 80s. Channel Dynasty with puffy sleeves, ruching galore and embellishments.

 

Fashion Hen Party Accessories

There really is no room for cowboy hats or slogan tshirts here! Have a browse through our boutique for some gems. We like accents of monochrome or gold glam for this theme.

Fashion Hen Party Activities

It’s all about the bubbles, and maybe a cocktail or two. Gin cocktails are very popular among the fashion elite right now so get to know your Tom Collins from your Gimlets. And of course no self respecting girl about town would be without a coconut water for next morning recovery.

It’s all about the selfie for fashion week festivities. Get the gang pouting with the promise of a prize for the best hen selfie.
