Last week I attended the launch of Belfast Fashion Week and got a sneak peak at some of the key fashion trends the models will be sporting come October. For me, it was all about the coats at the launch. I’m already on the hunt for a new season warm coat and I saw some fabulous ones from George at Asda and Marks And Spencer. I also loved all the blue hues on show. If you want to be on trend this autumn/winter then think about injecting a pop of baby blue into your outfit choices.
I went for a very autumnal look for the event, sporting black leggings, my new BCBGeneration leather cut-out heels and a luxurious velvet kimono from Topshop. I finished off my look with coral red lips and nails.
I feel that Belfast Fashion Week have really pulled out all the stops this season to celebrate their ten year anniversary. From a showing of the movie ‘Mean Girls’ to a stylish ‘Sushi Saturday’ event, there will also be the usual high street and designer catwalk shows, which will take place at a brand new quirky venue on Bruce Street, Belfast.
Speaking at the launch, director Cathy Martin said:
“Showcasing the best of our local designers and independent boutiques as well as international high street names, this autumn the catwalk will be a sea of colour, style and must-have fashion. We’re loving the blue hues, the coral reds, the plaid and the glorious glitter trends, as well as sharp suiting and oversized coats.
Our new move allows us the space to welcome a pop up sushi and cocktail bar from the fashionista’s favourite eaterie Zen, as well as play host to our new ‘shop the show’ boutique alley where show goers can browse and buy on-trend fashion and accessories from the shows.”
