A lifestyle blog bringing you fashion, music, food, and everything else that's just nice about Bristol and beyond!
Firstly, apologies it’s taken me so long to write this post. I went to Bristol Fashion week over a week ago! Hopefully it won’t matter too much as all the clothes are still in the shops and the weather is pissing on our summer parade anyway. I had to wear my coat today. MY COAT.
OK, before I go into a “Where’s my summer I’ve had enough of these tights!” rage, here’s my round up of Bristol Fashion Week…
I’ve not been to a Bristol Fashion Week before. We’ve meant to but things always got in the way but I can tell you it’s totally worth the trip! Do not expect couture – it’s high street but I am poor so this is where my budget lies anyway. And most of all, it’s just a bit of lovely fun and that’s just nice, isn’t it? I’m afraid I was sat in the back row so my pictures are not great but my key take aways from Bristol Fashion Week were:
Floral prints – (SHOCKER) but the prints are big and bold so that’s something to look forward to.
Pastels – (bet you couldn’t of guessed that) but this year it’s less ice cream and more macaroon (I was told this, I have no idea what it means).
Nautical- It wouldn’t be the summer without some sailor action.
Expression– this is a new trend and it’s meant to be influenced from expressionist painters. Imagine standing in a white dress and someone splattering paint at you. Well you’d end up with an expression dress.
Neon– It’s summer, things have got to brighten up a bit. I’ve never been brave enough to rock too much neon in the past, Meg is a neon PRO!
TROPICAL– this is my new favourite word and I love that we’re getting a tropical infusion in our fashion. Think tropical prints, denim short shorts and big colourful prints!
So that’s my very quick Bristol Fashion Week round up. I highly recommend you head on down to the mall for the Autumn/ Winter event.
