Backstage for Manchester Arndale shopping center fashion video

Last week me and my fellow blogger Holly   have been invited by Manchester shopping centre Arndale to go behind the senses of their new SS15 fashion video and to witness the magical moments of the video production while exploring the new season hottest trends  The key pieces, selected by stylist Becky from the Manchester  Arndale’s stores and showcased by model Caroline, represented 5 new trends. The shooting began early in the morning when the team shoot the candy colours skirts, shirts and jumpers in pastels while utility look took central stage in the afternoon. When me and Holly arrived at the scenes the film crew were shooting 70’s look. This spring/summer the 70’s are back! I would have never pictured myself a few years ago loving this decade, but today I think itโ€™s one of the best – for its contrasts, for its neurotic freedom, decay, rise, incredibly glamorous kitsch, rebelliousness and all thatโ€™s in between and beyond. I fell in love with this fringe jumper from Next that Becky has chosen to recreate the vibe of the era; she paired it with iconic flares and added chunky heels and a timeless floppy hat. Next look was florals. Despite being a regular spring trend, the concept of florals has never felt fresher than with this beautiful cami combined with the same print scuba skirt (all from Coast HERE ) embodied in an extremely feminine and expressionistic look . This outfit have everything you need to update your workwear and off duty basics for a serioulsy stylish spring. And of course that would be a crime to leave out in the cold these stunning floral partern heels by Dorothy Perkins that ideally complete the look ( you can check their new range of floral heels HERE )
The final trend is the main subject of the season’s lead stories – athletic overflowed with old-school attitude.
And again, Becky showed us yet another example of an amazing styling by creating this Sporty chic, luxe athletic look consisted of tailored trousers from Topshop HERE , high wedge sneakers, see-through jacket, crop top and backpack.
The latest makeup tendencies were reflected in the looks created by makeup artist Jodie . SS15 makeup is all about minimalist approach that marks a return to radiance and healthy glowing face- bronze skin, soft, pastel eyes with smoky shadow, vivid red lips and strokes of brilliant color. 
I’m very excited to see the end result on the 30th of March when the video will be shown on the shopping center tv screens, on Sky Adsmart in Greater Manchester area and on official Manchester Arndale YT channel HERE  and I hope you all gonna like it!
