BANKSY'S PAINT POT ANGEL COMPLEMENTING THE NEON ACCESSORIES ON THE CATWALK
I was lucky enough to be invited to the Harvey Nichols Spring Summer 2013 fashion show last night, which was also my first ever blogger event! The show was in the Bristol Museum & Art Gallery which was a stunning venue and beautifully transformed in to a catwalk with dramatic lighting and rows of persepex chairs. The show was split into five key trends and started with the models descending the striking staircase displaying the 'White Out' trend. This was followed by 'Colour Pop', 'Metallic', 'Monochrome', 'Mixed Prints' and finally a collection of 'Fantasy Frocks'.
My favourite collection was the Metallics and especially an amazing gold sleeved Burberry trench coat. I was also surprisingly keen on the use of Neon throughout the 'Colour Pop' and 'Mixed Print' collections as it isn't something that has really appealed to me before. It was all the other little details that really caught my eye though. For example the hair by Sean Hanna consisted of messy fishtail plaits and braided up-dos and was super relaxed but chic... the make-up was by Shu Uemura and was very simple apart from bright colour-pop pink lips! I think they're definitely something I will be trying this season... I loved how surprisingly well they traversed from trend to trend. The music was also amazing and really added to the atmosphere, some crazy remix of Alt-J's 'Something Good' appeared in the middle and a kind of reggae Adele song (!?) finished the show off.
To see some slightly better pictures of the show you can visit the Harvey Nichols blog or alternatively This is Bristol. You can also see a picture of me posing very awkwardly and what all the other bloggers wore on the South West Bloggers facebook page.
After the show I went for a quick drink at The Woods with my new blogging buddies Milly and Gemma! My next blogging event will be next Friday's Bristol Fashion Week event, will I see any of you there?
