Nottingham In Fashion - Press Evening

Glitter Bomb Cocktails;
Live in house DJ,
Fashion bursting at the seams.


Nottingham is bringing back its Yearly event, by showcasing the spring/summer style it has to offer for all.
Our evening was hosted at The Beauty Temple, in the heart of the city, and it was a glamorous atmosphere for the perfect presentation of the upcoming trends.

As we arrived, we were greeted by the Gemini PR team as well as the staff of the beauty temple; and were then handed a cocktail coupon, which could be redeemed during the evening. I took the opportunity to take plenty of pictures whilst it was still early and that I could enjoy networking more and having a good mingle! As the night progressed, more familiar blogger faces appeared and we were all treated to the most scrumptious cocktails, called the glitter bomb, with actual edible glitter in may I add!


There was entertainment with an in house DJ, who played tunes from the past and the latest hits; while we sipped cocktails and sampled the amazing pizza generously provided by MOD.
It was lovely to see Kimmy Rolfe, who will be presenting many of the shows this year and from just talking to her, you can really sense how passionate she is for getting the brands and public together in the city.


It was so pleasant to also speak to the adviser from the brand Delilah, which I've not come across before, but they are stock-listed at The Beauty Temple. It's a luxurious brand and aims to make women feel immaculate every day when used. They had the most beautiful packaging which was specifically created for the brand, a flawless pewter tone which makes it a stand out piece in any makeup bag!
Makeovers were offered as the story of Delilah unraveled; They do not test on animals and all of their products are paraben free which I love to hear. I especially loved the look of their blushes, with pops of pink and coral undertones and the cream lipsticks, which reminded me a lot of the Charlotte Tilbury nudes.


We were all then seated, as we were given a little fashion show of the main trends, that will be appearing at the upcoming weekend.
As informed there will be three different types of shows that will cater for every taste-
Show 1 : From Campus to Club, providing high street brands and iconic vintage stores that can be found Hockley way; This is perfect for any student or if you are on a budget but yet want to be in the trend.
Show 2 : From Desk to Dinner, This is more aimed for the working professional in the city, for showcasing tailored looks for work to then be dressed up for a night after clock off!
Show 3 : Style Classics, for those key pieces from high end stores, located in the heart of Nottingham.


So, what are some of the key trends this Spring/Summer 2017? Well, be prepared for -

  •  Fuchsia - Bold pinks whether they're an accessory, clothing item or even a rocking pink lip is key this season.
  • Check-mate - Checks will be sporting the catwalks and stores which can be dressed up or down with the retro hounds-tooth print and plaid for days.
  • Spring Bling - This is one i'm excited for, floral prints with statement accessories with extra bling and sparkle!
  • Born In the 80s - Think padded shoulders, Jumpsuits and mini neon bags; it's all coming back!

A big thank you to the two models, Jamie and Ryan, whom showed us how to style the pieces and giving us a personal insight of the 24th and 25th of March. 
As the evening drew to an end, I thanked the team for having me and we were kindly given goody bags which included generous discounts, sweets and perfume samples as well as information about #NottmFW.


I'm so excited to attend on the 25th and will be dressing up in the newest trends that's for sure! Feel free to say Hi if you spot me!

More information about shows and times can be found here as well as giveaways and discounts on the days.
