It was a snowy day today but how lovely to get indoors away from the snow and ice (nearly landing on my behind in heels in the process but we'll skim over that for now..) and see the gorgeous spring/summer lines that will launch in House of Fraser from March this year. A wonderful mix of florals, embellished collars and neon greeted us in the Ivory Restaurant making summer seem within touching distance

The full Kilian Kerner range will be stocked in only 3 stores initially and Belfast's House of Fraser is lucky to be one of these three. It launches at the beginning of March and given Kilian's stunning designs and his celebrity following, is likely to sell out fast.
I also checked out Grainne Maher, from Pluck & Devour's new range. I've featured Grainne on this blog before and 2013 is going to see P&D going global with stockists secured in Europe and the USA. What a wonderful local success story. Make sure you buy one of these beauties now - they are going to be collectors pieces in a few years. You can pick them up in House of Fraser Belfast or on Grainne's website on this link
To top things off nicely, Mark Rogers from Benefit was at the event. I met Mark at Menarys in Lisburn last year and he is just such a joy to talk to. I have honestly never met a happier person in his job. He sent me home with some lovely Benefit goodies that I can't wait to try - Benefit's Fine One One, sheer brightening colour for lips and cheeks and the Triple Performing Facial Emulsion (SPF 15). And House of Fraser kindly gifted me some bubbles which were gratefully received after my month of abstinence!
I hope you enjoyed this taste of House of Fraser Spring Summer. The good news is that you're going to see more from House of Fraser on the blog in the coming weeks as I'm working on something lovely to mark their 5 years in Belfast celebrations in March. Keep warm everyone and DON'T wear heels like these in the snow...scary mary sliding moments...I am relieved to have all my limbs intact. Back to flat boots tomorrow :)
