VIP Meet&Greet: Oxford Street’s fashion designers and industry experts
Sometimes with celebrity meeting and greeting, it’s all about luck. Being in the right place at the right time; to have that conversation you’ve always wanted – or to get those all important snaps to spread across your social media. Our VIP Meet&Greet section is all about giving you that helping hand, to point you in the direction of that ‘right place’ and with a bit of luck, you’ll be on your way to meeting (and living like) VIPs.
