How delighted was I to be offered a ticket for the opening night of Belfast Fashion Week 2012! When I started my little blog in January, I never thought that a mere 2 months later, I would be sashaying my way through the Europa Hotel, sipping on a West Coast Cooler and admiring some high-end runway fashion. But first things first…what did I wear? Here’s me almost on the runway…
Blazer – ASOS, Dress – River Island, Shoeboots – M&S
I wore what I always wear when I’m not sure what to wear. Clean, simple lines and heels. You can’t go wrong.
But back to the task at hand…what did I see on my evening out?
Well, lots more than the show itself as I had a great time chatting to the suppliers that had set up on the foyer. After I hauled myself away from The Sugar Room‘s cupcake stand, I stopped to chat to Belfast Fashion Week’s official eyewear partner, William Morris London. Robert got me to try on lots of their trendy frames and introduced me to Jonathan Keys, the local stockist of his range. There then followed a rambling conversation about how far back in the Keys family tree Jonathan and I are related. I’ll not bore you with the details!
