On Wednesday night I was lucky enough to experience my first event as a V.I.B (very important blogger) at the bloggers preview for the Intu MetroCentre #IntuColours fashion week. Getting a sneak peak at the fashion shows that would be following for the rest of the week.
On arrival we were greeted with an abundance of cakes and cocktails (an essential at any blogger event) and the chance to take selfie, print out as many copies as we desired and to win an amazing box of goodies! – I’m sad to say I did not win, but I loved the option to print out the photos as I love to collect little keepsakes like that.
After we all fed ourselves with macaroons and cupcakes we found our way to our seats and were greeted with a gorgeous personalised notebook from Note and a goodie bag full of amazing samples thanks to the House of Fraser. I must admit I loved sitting on the front row, FROW! Yeah mama i’ve finally made it!! I felt quite like quite a celebrity if I’m honest and the shows presenter Anna Foster proceeded to inform the rest of the shopping mall we were V.I B’s and made us feel quite loved.
Once in our seats the Fashion show began and we were presented with a range of different looks (on some rather handsome models) from a variety of different shops within the shopping mall including Warehouse, Topshop and Superdry. I forgot how much I enjoy fashion shows like this, as it allows you to see outfits styled on a model, whereas sat on a rail you might not have looked twice at it. My favourite look had to be the black and white striped co-ord, which looked gorgeous on the model, though if i’d seen these in the shops I probably wouldn’t have noticed them. But now i’ve seen them i don’t know how I can cope with a life without them in my wardrobe. The power of a catwalk.
The Fashion shows weren’t all just about showing off the gorgeous spring fashions on offer within the MetroCentre but also to promote their Big Intu Clothes Drop Campaign, where you donate your unwanted clothes for Centrepoint to help support homeless youths throughout the country. But don’t worry if you missed the MetroCentre’s IntuColour’s fashion shows, theres plenty happening up and down the country in Intu shopping centre’s.
