On Wednesday I was fortunate enough to be invited to the VIP show of Bristol Fashion Week, which is the first time i’ve ever been. It’s up at Cribbs Causeway which, if you don’t have a car and live in the centre is a bit of trek to get to…I had to race out of work at 5.30, run to the bus, and then just about got there on time for the show, which started at 6.30,
The show was co-presented by Lucy Watson (of Made in Chelsea fame…i’m afraid I was a bit clueless as to who she was as i’m not a particularly massive MIC fan…), and featured high street shops from Cribbs – Topshop, Jigsaw, Gap, Superdry and Hobbs.
The theme for the Spring/Summer collections was, of course, holidays and travel, which made for lovely colourful backdrops on the catwalk.
My favourite looks were the pastels and florals – i’m not usually one for florals but there were some lovely prints, and the dresses were oh so pretty.
Afterwards we headed to M&S for a preview in to their new collection, and of course CHEESE and MEAT and SPARKLING WINE. I won’t lie, that was a real highlight after having left work with nothing to eat, and sitting through the fashion show…
It didn’t take us long to tuck in to it, after taking a few photos of ourselves and the clothes, of course.
Thanks so much for having me, can’t wait for the Autumn/Winter show now!
