Four hundred fearless futurists joined us on Tuesday evening to celebrate the 20th issue of Schön! Magazine. The forward thinking architecture of the new Ravensbourne was a fitting setting for the launch of the Future is Now issue, which showcases all things innovative in a ferociously fresh way. As well as being the first to see Schon!’s latest offering, attendees witnessed 3-D printing in action, 3-D films and installations from the stars of the future, Ravensbourne’s Fashion Promotion students.
Guests were treated to sounds by talented DJ Janos Horvath, while enjoying delicious delicacies courtesy of the Bavarian Beerhouse and drinks from Abnormal Vodka, One Key Gin, FIJI Water, My Smoothie, Kaptive, Little Miracles, Arizona Drinks and Mad Dog Lemonade. The night was topped off with goody bags packed full of treats from our kind sponsors Dr Haushka, Lee Stafford, Vitabiotics, Conscious Skincare, Greenwood Organics, The Vintage Cosmetic Company Makie Lab, Bodhi and Bonny Confectionary, and of course, the latest issue of Schön! All in all, it was the perfect ending to London Fashion Week and the perfect start to a brave new future.
We would like to express our kind gratitude to our sponsors and supporters for this magnificent event.

The Bavarian Beerhouse
The Bavarian Beerhouse is an authentic German restaurant with two locations in London, where ‘Dirndi’ and Lederhosen clad waiting staff serves ice cold beer and hearty Bavarian food. It is also home to the UK’s number one Oktoberfest event, bringing the famous German festival to London each year in September and October. Schön! once again has the pleasure of welcoming the Bavarian Beerhouse as the caterer for our upcoming event.
Abnormal Vodka, as its name would suggest, is anything but normal. This is a drink that burns, kicks, screams and refuses to go down too smoothly which, according to Abnormal Vodka, is a good thing. This is called flavour. Our guests will be able to sample this unique vodka at our event.
One Key Gin
One Key Gin is a venture into a new realm of gin, with its exotic botanicals, unusual ingredients and award-winning, one-of-a-kind bottle design. One Key Gin was created in 2009, with one simple goal in mind: to produce a totally different and innovative gin. Our guests will be able to admire the beautiful bottle and taste this tantalising tipple for themselves at our event.
Mad Dog Lemonade
Tired of sugary energy drinks, but still tired enough to drink them? Mad Dog Energy Drinks has the perfect solution: an energy drink with 80mg of caffeine, 1,000mg of Taurine and vitamin B, but only as much sugar as a glass of real orange juice. Our guests can enjoy the fresh lemonade taste and natural ingredients.
“Far from pollution. Far from acid rain. Far from industrial waste.” This is the ethos of FIJI Water, which strives to provide you with the cleanest H2O possible. According to FIJI Water, remoteness is the key to sourcing water that is purer and richer in taste than any other bottled water. Fiji, an island of beauty, nature and remoteness, provides the perfect source. Enjoy water that has never been touched by human hands or come in contact with the pollution of the 21st Century. Now that’s clean.
The origin of Little Miracles can be traced all the way back to China, where the creator of this health and energy drink discovered the power of the Chinese Ginseng root, which helped farmers double their efforts during harvest time. After this discovery, samples were reworked into a powerful concentrate using carefully selected Panax Ginseng in its purest form. Little Miracles is organic energy that comes in delicious flavours, such as black tea, white tea, and green tea.
mySmoothie plants its roots in Sweden, where founder Domenique Forsberg developed the drink from the berry smoothies her grandmother used to make for her. Forsberg developed the drink, which has become a hit around the world. Our guests will enjoy the distinct Swedish flavour in every sip of these super smoothies.
Healthy is the new word in beverages today and that is exactly what Kaptive provides with its new drink containing coca leaf and green tea. Among other things, the coca leaf stimulates, relieves hunger and enhances energy, while the green tea helps fight cancer, rheumatoid arthritis and high cholesterol. While partying at our event, our guests will be able to reap all these benefits by simply enjoying a refreshing beverage.
Coming all the way from the USA, AriZona will provide us with great tasting teas in a variety of flavours, including healthy green tea, pomegranate green tea, and blueberry white tea. Already popular in the USA, these delicious detox drinks are beginning to make a mark in the UK.

The Vintage Cosmetic Company

The Vintage Cosmetic Company offers this and more to its customers, with fun and flirty lashes in creative, covetable packaging.
