Woohoo! Hello everyone I’m writing today about three unforgettable days I spent at the most important Manchester fashion event of the year – #MCRFW. As an official blogger of Manchester Fashion Week I was given a perfect seat in the first row next to my fellow blogger Lily from http://lilykitten1.blogspot.co.uk/ so we applied a final layer of our lipsticks and got our cameras ready for a long-awaited fashion feast. I have to say that the place where all this magic happened was simply breathtaking – the Halle St Peters – a grandiose and mysterious building where the past and future entwine. The first day was dedicated to the showcase of young emerging designers from all over the North West whose stunning collections I was impressed with. First on the catwalk we saw futuristic dresses by Sophie Ho followed by cosmic oversized jackets by Caiti Betterton, Lucy Cowan’ s skirt with photo prints was a real showstopper while pastel 3D outfits designed by Helen Colville and unique textures from Leah Jones showed a great talent with a lot of potential and promising future for the creators. Emily Shaw and her knitted avant-garde pieces were amongst the main highlights of the showcase and drew huge attention, she was definitely my favourite designer of the day.
Taking the opportunity I would like to thank everyone who helped make these fantastic days happen- organisers, interns, models, bloggers and of course this year’s sponsors – online fashion company :http://www.5fashion.co.uk/.
I knew I’d be tired and exhausted by the end of the show so decided to wear something comfortable: a very rare jacket from Primark, PU pants from Zara, shoes also from Zara.
Manchester fashion week showed once again a great taste, creativity and experimental spirit of the city and whole North West region presenting some incredibly talented designers whose names I am sure will soon be heard in the biggest capitals of the fashion world.
