Bristol Fashion Week part two

There was a dramatic opening for this seasons fashion show, it started with a very talented violinist (who also happened to be one of the models - some people have all the luck!) playing beautifully against a dramatic backdrop of imagery taking us from the dark and dreary winter months to a happier, lighter and warmer mood of spring. A great start to what turned out to be Cribbs Causeways best catwalk show yet.

The styling is always superb and this season was no exception, with bags and bangles in abundance the models looked great.  We were treated to twelve scenes illustrating every trend, floral, ladylike, seventies glamour and soft neutrals, you name it, it was there.

 All scenes were highly energetic with perfectly co-ordinated choreography, but my favourite scene had to be scene seven which had everyone rocking out to Bon Jovi, and one cute model doing some seriously awesome air guitaring.

My photo didn't do him justice so thanks to Sarah King for this one.

My favourite pieces from the show are (surprise surprise) the animal print halterneck dress from Warehouse and a gorgeous grass green shirt dress from Hobbs NW3 available at John Lewis – which reminds me, Hobbs has opened a standalone store at Cribbs Causeway, but I’ll tell you about that later.

Mark Heyes and Andrew Barton were sporting the latest trends, dressed head to toe in light toned suits.  Andrew Barton opted for a retro look and temaed a pale blue suit with a floral shirt.  Mark Heyes added edge to his slim fitting khaki suit with a pair of studded Louboutins sneakers (very jealous).

The show was testament to the fact that fashion at Cribbs Causeway is getting better and better, it’s well worth a visit whether you’re looking for the latest fashions or something a little more classic – there’s something for everyone.   I’m looking forward to taking my clients shopping there in the coming weeks.
