My fashion filled weekend started on Friday afternoon at the Bath in Fashion Designer Show sponsored by Mallory. It took place in none other than the glamorous Assembly Rooms where the fashionable Georgian society frequented for dinners and balls. Today it is the perfect setting to carry on this fashionable tradition and bring it back to life with an epic fashion production. The Assembly Rooms is also home to the fabulous Fashion Museum which is a must see for everybody!
It was fantastic to get to the event before the doors opened to witness last minute preps and feel the excitement in the room. I was tempted to climb a ladder and help with the lighting myself.
I would like to say a big thank you to Nicky from Bath in Fashion for giving me a seat right at the front, facing the end of the catwalk for photos. What a spot!
I also had the pleasure of meeting the lovely Liz Cox who was sitting next to me. She was showcasing her bags which I couldn't wait to see! Along with the bags designed for the celebrity 'It' Bag Auction.
British bag makers and celebrities designed bags for a charity auction (Forever Friends Appeal) as part of Bath in Fashion. Celebrities including Winter Olympic gold medalist Amy Williams, milliner Stephen Jones, interiors expert Nina Campbell, supermodel Jade Parfitt and fashion writer Iain R Webb.
