Last weekend I was kindly invited to an access all areas, behind the scenes look at the Festival Place Love Fashion Weekend. I of course was thrilled to be involved; fashion, photography and meeting other bloggers, what’s not to love!
I got there early to get ready, I opted for this beautiful jumpsuit from Lipsy from the new Next in Basingstoke. I am a huge fan of a jumpsuit, they can be dressed up or down according to the event and I find them so comfortable to wear whilst looking completely cool and put together.
My lovely friend Lucie came along to support me and help me capture the day. Festival Place invited along some bloggers too and it was so nice to meet them especially after “knowing” each other online! Also, props to the Zara biker jacket that I have been lusting after for so long!
It was a pleasure to interview stylist JP who put on a brilliant show. He was so charming and it was really lovely to get an insight into his ideas behind the design of his show. Encapsulating the SS17 trends into each catwalk, it was so nice to see how he pitched each trend from each store within Festival Place, I definitely could have talked to him all day, and that beard was oh so soft!
Some of my personal favourites would have t0 be the desert pallet bought together from Next, that trench!! Plus the summer style from Debenhams and the stripes collection. Watching a show like this makes it all seem so much more attainable than the LFW shows I watch from afar. I love that all of these items are available in Festival Place there and then if people want to go and pick them up. JP did a beautiful job to put together all of these looks and to open up the every day shopper’s eye to what might appear within the high street stores.
I vlogged my day at the Festival Place Love Fashion weekend if you want to see more of what we got up to and some behind the scenes action, take a look here and let me know which were your favourite looks!
