Saturday I was fortunate enough to be invited to the spring/summer 2017 fashion event at Intu Victoria Centre as part of the Nottingham Fashion Week. We met up at Cafe Rizzoli where we were greeted by the owner of the chain who as last time, gave us impeccable service. We enjoyed a Bellini and truffles in the sunshine and had a good natter before heading down to where the main event was being held (outside boots).
We were lead down to the main foyer, where we treated to a fashion show. I appreciated the thought behind the show as they showed different body types, ways to dress up/down outfits to save money, and different styles. The trends this season are right up my alley with embroidery, denim, ruffles, and chokers all key pieces this season!
There were “paparazzi” around the centre taking snaps of everyone in the centre who were dressed up (very stylishly may I add!). I managed to snap these couple of picture of them!
After the fashion show, we were set a challenge to find items that matched a theme we were given, my theme was seeing red. I picked up a lovely red choker style t-shirt in Topshop by the brand Tea and Cake which is super cool! I also picked up some sparkly Toms which were amazing as my feet were suffering a bit after wearing heels all day.
After our style challenge we were taken out for food at Handmade Burger Co, this is the only part of the event I was a little disappointed in. The food took a long time to come out and was cold when it arrived, the drink orders kept being messed up, and the servers didn’t seem to know what was going on.
I appreciate the generosity from the Intu Victoria Centre staff as they again pulled out all the stops for us bloggers. I’d like to say special thanks to media team and cartwright communications for holding such wonderful events for us bloggers.
