Bristol Fashion Week at The Mall Cribbs Causeway

So as you all probably know, my Friday evening consisted of fashionista fun and meeting some really sweet bloggers down at Bristol Fashion Week. This is what i ended up wearing, thanks to everyone who helped in my last post!
See what the other bloggers wore here and please like your favourite outfits!
So I attended the event with my friend Grace and we headed down a little early to have a gander around the mall. I managed to get my hands on a sample of the new Chanel vitalumiere aqua foundation and the Estee Lauder foundation as well as 3 of the Revlon lip butters! I bought the shades Cupcake, Lollipop and Berry Smoothie and I'm not going to go into detail about these because i know so many other bloggers have and i agree with them, so if you want an in depth review you can have a lookie at this post.
Anywho, after a wander around, we headed down to the pavilion to collect out bloggers passes and meet up with Millie and Vicky (They're so cute, please look at their blogs!) And we headed into the show! We were greeted with a beautiful array of French fancies (yum!) and pink fizz wine. After a munch, we were able to take our seats on either side of the runway.

The show began with a candy cane heaven, bringing mouth watering ice cream shades and pastels to the runway. I couldn't believe these were fashions from John Lewis because I don't shop there for clothes, yet they seemed relateable and wearable. The models reminded me of dolly's! In scene 2 we caught a glimpse of some hawwwt half naked men showing off luxe sportswear from JD sports. This was inspired by the upcoming 2012 Olympics.

Next, scene 3 was inspired by the romantic city of Paris including fashions from Hobbs with menswear from River Island and designer bags from Radley.

Scene 4 was a collection of tribal inspired prints including lots of aztec and a mixture of both maxi skirts and shorts. I love all the tribal inspired gold bangles! And i couldn't believe these fashions were from M&S and the jewellery from Clive Ranger. The next scene was a light hearted and fun collection of beach wear, i particularly loved the denim playsuits and plan to whip these out in when it gets a tad bit warmer! The clothing from this scene was from animal and the accessories from Claire's.

Scene 6 brought us fashions from Evans and BHS and included a flirty 1950's prom style and i have to say, in this scene the younger children models looked so flipping cute! The dresses weren't really my thing though. And next we had a Latin treat with fashions from Oasis and menswear from M&S. The Latin fashions tended to be floral and tropical prints full of vibrant colours and energy.

I really enjoyed the next two scenes, i thought the decadent fashions from Miss Selfridge were absolutely stunning with a beautiful array of nude chiffons which looked totally glamorous and very 1920's at points. My all time favourite scene was the festival theme in scene 9 because i absolutely love the style! The leather shorts are something i wish i could pull of, but i just adore how laid back and grungy the fashions are.

This is a continuation of the festival scene because i laaaave it so much! These clothes were from USC, H&M and BHS. Seriously though, look at those adorable stripy dungarees! I want!

With a couple of scenes left to go, scene ten jumped back to a very clean, tweed chanel inspired feel with fashions from Jigsaw and River Island. After this there was a John Lewis nautical scene, inspired by sea life. I adore the yellow and green shift dress pictured above!

Next, there were even more fashions from M&S representing the sound of spring. I would say the theme for this scene was a sharp classic 1920's garden party including lots of whites and pale colours. Finally, a red, white and blue jubilee celebration presented the grand finale of Bristol Fashion Week which included clothing from various stores throughout the mall.
So all in all, it was a fab show and i want to thank the Mall Cribbs Causeway for having us and Gina for inviting us! I seriously hope there will be a bloggers invite for next season because i will definitely be there!
