The Bath in Fashion Designer Show!


Happy Monday Everybody!  I am still buzzing from the weekend!
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.

Last minute lighting preparations before the doors opened.


My favourite design at the show was a Sisi & May 'Blank' Raumoa one shoulder long grey print dress with a silver snake clutch by Wilbur & Gussie. I loved the Liz Cox set, her bags looked amazing in all different colours and styles. It was also great to see black dress designs from Bath Spa students. Other designs that stood out for me were the Hermione de Paula pretty, printed dresses. Ette London silk scarf tops in all different patterns. Grace and Mabel fish print dress by Hoss Intropia and girly vintage style pieces from Prey. The jumpsuit by Jean Pierre Braganza finished the show off beautifully for me. I am obsessed with jumpsuits at the moment!
I hope you enjoy the show in pictures below, I have chosen a photo from each of the designer/retailer collections:
