London, obviously, the best capital city, brimming with fashion, food, and unbeatable events, it’s about to get even better with the return of Carnaby Street’s style night. With the weather finally brightening up, it’s about time you shed those layers, said goodbye to puffer jackets, thick turtlenecks and blanket scarves, and welcomed in a brand new wardrobe.

On Thursday 4th May, Carnaby will host exclusive offers and discounts from your favourite brands, from Levi’s, Cheap Monday, Monki and Ben Sherman. As well as Paul Smith, The Kooples, Scotch & Soda and Pretty Green. Makeup fans will squeal with delight as Carnaby beauty flagship stores including Estée Edit, Illamasqua, Benefit and Pixi, as well as Urban Decay, MAC and Cowshed all boast discounts and offers. Cool kids can explore the alternative Newburgh Quarter where the offers continue at Baracuta, Oi Polloi, The Great Frog, Billionaire Boys Club, EVISU and Lazy Oaf.

Before you shop, you can hear what trends are set to be big this season at Carnaby’s exclusive trend talks, and take advantage of their style sessions to create new collections of your own. It’ll be worth it– Carnaby Style Hunters will be rewarding fashionistas on the night with a goodie bag worth £200!

Johnny’s Chop Shop will be providing free haircuts, and artist Willa Gebbie will be creating live digital illustrations to capture your fresh new look.

There will be plently of entertainment to keep you occupied including skate crew High Rollaz, performing throughout the evening, showcasing their energetic talents on Carnaby’s famous pedestrianised streets. MOSCOT have live music all night, and Illamasqua’s ‘Men in Makeup’ event will have the best Queens in town showing their skills. There’s table tennis in the Newburgh Quarter, and Triyoga, in conjunction with leading men’s yoga brand Ohmme, will also be hosting a free yoga class with Jeff Phenix for all those willing to try a little something different.

If you start getting sensory overload, head to the Beetle Juice VW pop-up bar, where ticketholders can nab a complimentary cocktail. Chock full of great dining places, you won’t have to venture far to get the likes of Dirty Bones, Le Bab, Whyte &  Brown, Pizza Pilgrims, Island Poké and Dehesa. After the thrill of new purchases has worn off, and your feet have started that slow ache, or if you just need a drink, you can finish the evening with a Pisco Sour at Señor Ceviche, retro tipples at underground bar Cahoots, or try Kingly Court’s new cocktail bar Disrepute. Count us in.

Carnaby Street’s Style Night will take place Thursday 4th May, 5-9pm
