For those of you who follow me on Instagram you’ll know that the lovely Cathy Martin (CMPR) invited me along to the Belfast Fashion Week Press Launch in Ormeau Baths yesterday. As IF that’s not exciting enough this years marks the 25th Belfast Fashion Week, meaning that this one is definitely not to be missed!
A Press Launch is essentially a quick preview of the clothes that are going to be show cased at the upcoming Fashion Week hosted by West Coast Cooler (22nd March – 25th March http://www.belfastfashionweek.com/). Speaking of West Coast Cooler, as it is one of my favourite drinks of course I am going to make an appearance! Any blogger event is always sure to be loads of fun, surrounded by local bloggers all under the one roof! With friends all around and fashion masterpieces put together by Cathy herself, it was a brilliant afternoon. Upon arrival I was met with an ice cold glass of West Coast Cooler – off to a great start and can I just say speaking as someone who isn’t exactly on the ball when it comes to fashion even I am excited! Even I am looking forward to wearing some of this season’s trends rather than sticking it out in my regular all black attire (habit of a Make Up Artist). Perhaps a pop of colour is what I need… which is perfect considering that’s exactly what Spring/Summer 2018 has in store.
We seen beautiful pieces from brands such as Nor Lisa Fashion Designer, Lover of Luxe, Ring o Rosies, Topshop, ASOS, Dunnes Savida and many, many more!
Let’s take a quick peek at a few of my favourites from yesterday’s Launch…
Makes the boys wink! Pink is one of the most beautiful colours and is perfect for Spring/Summer. We seen beautiful, effervescent pieces from furry coats to fabulous pencil skirts, from socks in shoes (excited by this) to Elle Woods worthy outfits. See below for yourself, but expect an influx of pink into your favourite shops this season.
Leading on from the pink theme, we enter the world of this beautiful pastel lilac hue. The ice cream style colour is sure to enter your wardrobe at least one way or another. I haven’t been able to stop thinking about this colour since yesterday. I am especially feeling the pineapple bag!
One of my favourite colours to wear as green is quite an easy to style colour and tends to flatter most. I tend to have the fear of looking like Shrek when I wear green but I am going to take some style tips from the below photos as this green is made to look very elegant.
Obsessed with this Topshop suit!
Stripes & Spots
I for one, am immensely happy that this trend isn’t shifting as the majority of my clothes have either a stripe or spot print, so expect a lot of this from me.
I am so excited for West Coast Cooler Belfast Fashion Week to see what else Cathy and her amazing team have in store for us.
