All you need to know about Canary Wharf’s Black Friday Fashion Event – four days of discounts, exclusive promotions and more
When Is Black Friday?
This year, Black Friday falls on Friday 26 November however, we’ll be running our Black Friday Fashion Event for four days – from Thursday 25 to Sunday 28 November – so there’s plenty of opportunity to discover all of the deals from high street to high end brands.
When did Black Friday begin?
The shopping event – where brands offer special discounts and deals – started in America, but the tradition crossed the pond approximately a decade ago. Now it’s a key date in many people’s diaries, especially in the run-up to Christmas where there are plenty of savings to be had. Every year the date of Black Friday differs, but it always falls on the day after Thanksgiving.
What Is happening during Canary Wharf’s Black Friday event?
As well as a whole host of offers from Canary Wharf’s retailers – read on for further details – the exclusive colourful prism runway installation which was a huge success at this year’s Autumn Fashion Event is back from 15 November in Jubilee Place.
Get inspired with the latest trends that include little black dresses and smart menswear attire – perfect for all of those Christmas parties – to comfy morning leisurewear.
