Love food, love fashion even more, fancy having a free manicure or trying out some hair braids just for the fun of it? On the 16th of September we’re hosting our first ever fashion and food event at hipster street food space Dinerama in Shoreditch and EVERYONE is invited.
This is your chance to hang out with InStyle at London’s hottest street food haunt, which boasts six bars (where your ticket will buy you a free ‘GinStyle’ spritz cocktail and a bottle of ice-cold Moretti lager) and five street food vendors dishing up everything from toasted lobster brioche rolls to steamed pork buns and salted caramel doughnuts. Yum.

Once you’ve arrived and fuelled yourself up on food and drink you can work your way through our selection of fashion attractions, which will include an exclusive sample sale from hot British fashion brand Folk (the incredibly chic knitwear will give your Autumn wardrobe a stylish reboot), as well as a ‘pimp your phone’ stall hosted by Skinny Dip London where you can give your mobile a personalized twist so you never lose it again.

What’s more, there’ll be free styling sessions at the Wasted Chic stall with InStyle’s very own Fashion Editor – and resident denim expert - Amy Bannerman and the chance to get a free manicure from MoYou-London or road-test a new hairstyle at The Braid Bar's pop-up.

And don’t worry about the weather, it might be an outdoor event and this is London, but the Dinerama team will have burning wood fires (love that smell) and an amazing new roof at the ready, so you’ll be toasty and dry enough to party in style.
Getting GIFfy with it
Ever wondered how you can make your selfies stand out? Mirror pictures are so 2012 – now, it’s all about the GIF, and we’ve got exactly what you need. Look Look’s photobooth will be ready and waiting at Instylerama for you to GIF the night away, props and wigs optional (erm, definitely preferable).
Picture this: one booth, three of you (two free drinks down) and six snapshots to take the perfect pictures for your Facebook-ready GIF, which you can pimp with text before it gets sent to your phone. Now, just upload to your social media pages and watch the likes roll in… If your GIF isn’t Instappropriate, it’s yours to keep on your mobile for Whatsapp sharing only.
Saw someone you liked the look of but were too busy tucking into hot dogs and pizza to make a move? We’re totally down if you want to stalk the Look Look hashtag, where you can see all the other uploads from the night. You never know where a like might lead you… Or just log on to LookLook.co.uk for the full set of images. Our top tip? Work backwards – photos from 11pm are always much more…free, than the start of the night. You know who you are.
Bagged a bargain at the Folk sample sale? GIF it. Has InStyle’s Fashion Editor Amy Bannerman given you a sneak peak at the best vintage to buy from Blitz? GIF it. Knitted your own beanie, crafted your DIY pom-pom or painted your plimsolls with En Brogue herself, InStyle’s Fashion Features Editor Hannah Rochell? GIF IT! You can even pimp your iPhone while you’re sharing your snaps with Skinny Dip London.
With all the amazing free beauty treatments (you know those braids you can’t do by yourself? We’ve got you covered), fashion sample sales, Wasted Chic's super-edgy jewellery brands (all under £100, btw) and crazily Instagrammable food and drink available at Instylerama, Look Look’s GIF photobooth is the perfect way to remember your night.
