The Shoebox Jukebox Event
The sun was high in the sky with promises of summer when I walked along Bethnal Green High Street in London’s cool and funky Shoreditch on my way to the venue.
We were promised music, food, drink and dancers as well as a preview of the shoes available from Next, and we were not disappointed!

As the doorman checked my invitation and ticked me off the list, music played and guests mingled, sipping their cocktails and prosecco. No sooner was I through the door when I was greeted by waiters offering a much needed refreshment, which I of course accepted!
The event was hosted by one of fashions giants; Next and Company Magazine, home of daily fashion, travel and beauty. The walls were graced with all kinds of shoes and in the center of the venue sat a Jukebox surrounded by even more shoes. Guests were asked to photograph and instagram their favorite pair of shoes and #ShoeboxJukebox @NextOfficial for their chance to win the shoes!

As guests nibbled on delightful canapes and sipped their drinks, they snapped away and uploaded their pictures. The winners were announced on a big screen and many people were rewarded for their efforts, myself included!
