Dress of the Year by Christopher Kane, 2013
The Royal Crescent Hotel received us with tea and biscuits, as our hosts talked about the the biggest event that Bath has to offer: Bath in Fashion. Among these was the lovely Gina Jones, who had invited us to the blogger's preview on behalf of the much anticipated event of the season.
Bath in Fashion was built on the foundation of the beauty and heritage of this great city, the aim: "to do things differently - and better." Guests of the shows that will be featured during BIF can expect the best, with the carefully selected models, show producers and stylists coming from the crest of the London waves.
We set of on a fashion scavenger hunt, and in amusingly competitive teams endeavoured to find all the allocated stores to scout out the trends they had on display. The stores included Liz Cox, Reiss, Instant Vintage and, my favourite of the day, Jigsaw to name a few. This season we'll see a diverse range of trends, some much loved and well-known and others a little more eccentric (insert '90s printed statement-wearing, Brick Lane haunting Urbanites and you get the idea). The trend I'm most looking forward to is tribal, as it'll be interesting to see people experiment with the onslaught of barely tamed prints and colours unleashed from the fashion world's Haute and High street gates.
Upon our return we were greeted with champagne and generously sized gift bags, and had the chance to wind down after a long day's fun-filled hard 'work.' Some of the bloggers included She & Hem, and Credit Crunch Chic - go and check them out. And then come back here.
Until next time. x
