Belfast Fashionweek

27 October 2014

Belfast Fashion Week returned for its tenth and one of its best years yet.  Fashion Week headquarters are now at LIFE Church, an incredible building that was absolutely perfect for the event. The team are staying here for a few more seasons which is fab because I adore it. 
As I made my way into the venue I had my outfit snapped by Brendan Gallagher before being handed a glass of my fave West Coast Cooler Rose. I then dropped into the reception room which was decorated with an array of fairy lights and cherry blossom flowers hanging from the ceiling. Bellaire had a pop-up salon offering gorgeous manicures from their team and Peter Mark also had a mini-salon set up for guests to have their hair touched up before heading out for after show drinks.

-What I wore-

I was lucky enough to be styled by one of Belfast's best and most creative stylists, Lewis Robert Cameron from Beyond Man. He contacted me with the idea of collaborating to come up with my outfits for each of the shows, although, there wasn't much collaborating because Lewis put things together that I'd never think of. He's made me want to be more adventurous with my outfits and I certainly got all the attention that we were after!

Cocktails and Sushi from Zen lined the bar as Belfast's best dressed got style spotted for the Ulster Tatler and IN magazine before we all headed in to see the show.

Thursday night's show was Excel which showcased some distinguished and well known designer brands like Barbour, Ted Baker and Armani.

Designer's night was on Friday, it was my favourite. I witnessed some amazing creations from local designers such as Julia Sokele, GrĂ¡inne Maher and, my personal favourite,newcomer Chloe Dougan. This was as well as local boutiques like Jourdan, Diamond Dolls and the amazing Blush.

 The final catwalk show was high street heaven, the outfits were pulled together impeccably. I fell in love with the monochrome co ord that model Yomiko rocked. 
Castle Court dominated the catwalk during the high street show on Saturday. This Burton pastel blue suit just takes the biscuit though doesn't it? Love.

As always, a huge thank you goes out to the entire fashionweek team for another incredibly successful season. 
Here's to S/S 15!
