Liverpool Fashion Week: Opening Night

Fashion has hit the North West in a massive way this month! What with Vogue's Fashion Night Out in Manchester last week it was the turn of my own home city to fly the fashion flag!

Monday saw the launch of Liverpool Fashion Week- the biggest fashion event with more catwalk shows than any other outside of London Fashion Week! 

There are lots of misconceptions related to Liverpool Fashion with many thinking it is all about over the top scouse style -- scouse brow anyone? However- Liverpool Fashion Week truly shakes off the stereotype as LLFW director and editor of Lifestyle Magazine, Amanda Moss stating: 

"Liverpool Fashion Week is edgy, off the wall and elegant. if you are thinking big hair, lip gloss and 4 layers of false lashes symbolic of the WAG/reality TV culture then think again. That is not what Liverpool Fashion Week is about. Our fabulous city is making its stamp on the world's fashion stage with our eclectic and diverse collections from some of the most talented people in the industry. Liverpool is the one to watch."

I was delighted to be contacted by LLFW's  sponsors Lambrini to attend the opening night of the event and it did not disappoint! Obviously their was fabulous fashion on the catwalk- LLFW is a great place to see new emerging talent- but there was also live music, make-over's by the "Glambrini" girls and of course refreshments from the Lambrini bar! It was nice to get a fun fashion fix to banish my Monday blues!!

Love this! I'm a sucker for a floral number!

Eye-popping, highlighter shades could be big news in Liverpool next Summer!

Vogue's Fashion Night Out- Manchester

I'm baaaack!

So last you heard of me I was awaiting my graduation from University and I thought I would finally be getting some low down time to concentrate on my blog and take things easy before finding full time work-- how wrong was I!!

I have SO much to tell you that I really don't know where to begin- so I thought rather than overload you with everything at once I'll start with what I got up to just last night!

For any northern, fashion loving, shopaholic, Vogue obsessed individual there was only one place to be last night and that was of course Manchester for Vogue's Fashion Night Out! This is the first time the global style event has taken place in the North and in my opinion it did not disappoint!

With a whole host of famous fashion faces attended the event including designers Matthew Williamson, and Henry Holland. Jameela Jamil took over the Selfridges sound system and DJ'd throughout the evening whilst Harvey Nichols set up style huts for celebrities such as MIC's Jamie Laing and designers and contemporary artists such as Jacky Tsai recreating his floral skull design on T-Shirts for shoppers live in store!

Each store had their own unique way of celebrating the event and getting involved- Topshop played host to Vogue's own creative director Kate Phelan who gave a new season trend talk and edit to budding fashionistas. The Arndale cntre held various fashion shows throughout the night and there were discounts and competitions galore-- it really was an evening of pure shopping delight.
