Westfield Stratford city launch

On the 13th of september, I was invited to the launch of Westfield Stratford city the biggest urban shopping centre in Europe. The crowds where in full force with all the shoppers making an early dash into the shopping centre to marvel at this great piece of architecture with restaurants, cinemas, hotels and stores like Hollister, Gilly Hicks, All Saints, Superdry Hugo Boss, Prada etc .The Westfield Stratford city shopping centre is a massive place that caters to all..youmg and old. the Launch itself was hosted by Nick Grimshaw and Pixie Geldof and speeches were given by the Westfields Chairman Frank Lowy and London mayor Boris Johnson. There were also several dignitaries at the launch event including Tessa Jowell, Sir Phillip Green and many of the Westfield executives. Entertainment was provided by the ever gorgeous Nicole Sherzinger who really gave the place even more of a buzz than was already created by the shoppers belting out her favourite hits and working the stage like the pro that she is. I also attended a few other events taking place in the shopping centre in Hugo Boss, the launch of M&S and John Lewis, and ofcourse the fab party thrown by Fashion rocks. In all Westfield Stratford is going to be a massive hit and very good for the East London community creating atleast 10,00 permanent jobs 2000 of which have gone to the locally unemployed and generally getting the usually dull Stratford city global exposure. The centre has parking for 5000 cars and direct access into stratford international station.
