This week I attended the House of Fraser Spring/Summer press preview in Belfast’s Victoria Square. I got to have a look through a selection of the new womenswear ranges from Mary Portas, Oui, Nicole Farhi, BIBA, Dickins and Jones, Dune and Pied a Terre to name but a few.
The styles really varied from label to label. Oui and Nicole Farhi were all about pastels and more muted shades whilst Dickens and Jones and Pied a Terre had bolder colours and pattern on show.
But my favourite? Mary Portas all the way! Her accessories, in particular, called out to me. I’ve got my eye firmly on a bag and purse from her range (see below). Mary Portas was a real favourite amongst the other bloggers in attendance. Although her House of Fraser-only line might be geared towards the over 35s, us bloggers in our 20s love her!
After investing in some transitional pieces to see me through March/April, I’m now ready to start buying some truly summery pieces. House of Fraser is a great place to explore new brands and designers and I think I’ll be making another visit this weekend. Here’s hoping the sun will come out soon!
Tasty cocktails were served on arrival
I love the Nicole Farhi pieces. House of Fraser, Belfast are currently the only Northern Ireland stockists of this designer.
