|Myself and Lydia Rose Bright|
I very excitedly went to Cabot Circus on Wednesday night for the Bella Sorella VIP event, where Lydia & Georgia Bright gave us an exclusive preview of their Bella Sorella Boutique, over a glass of bubbly! What a perfect girly evening!
Myself and Karen were greeted by the extremely friendly and welcoming Lydia herself as she offered us a glass of fizz. She looked stunning in a cream waterfall dress from her collection and black courts. Surrounded by rails of clothes I couldn't wait to take a good look at her new collection and own label 'Lydia Rose Bright'. From watching TOWIE and knowing Lydia was into vintage and had her own unique style, I knew there would be vintage inspired styles from pretty florals to glamorous lace and prom dresses. There is something for everyone in her collection. Lydia runs Bella Sorella with her sister, the lovely Georgia Bright. Bristol is the second pop up shop location for Lydia and Georgia's UK Tour. The UK launch is in Bristol for one weekend only so go and check it out this weekend!
|The Florence Dress from the Lydia Rose Bright Collection is one of my favourites. Vintage perfection.|
|The Elizabeth Dress by Lydia Rose Bright which is one of her best sellers and comes in Burgundy and Black too. I love the little lace cap sleeves and tulip shape skirt.|

After kindly being asked to kick off the interviews, Lydia and I sat down and had a good ol' chinwag with a glass of bubbly (just my kind of interview). Lydia has that warm persona that makes you feel like you have known her forever and I could have chatted to her all night. I couldn't wait to ask her which her favourite design was in the collection and she told me it was her 'Kitty' dress.
|The Kitty Dress|
The Kitty dress is a glamorous off the shoulder number with long lace sleeves. I wanted to know if she had always loved fashion and she told me it was always around her growing up. Her mum Debbie (who I feel I know from TOWIE) worked for a fashion house, her Auntie was a designer and her Grandmother also worked in fashion. Knowing she was a lover of vintage and retro clothes I asked her what inspired her designs. She told me she loves vintage detailing, lace, crochet, collars and the way the clothes fit. Lydia has gone for a darker palette for her Autumn/Winter 13 range and glamorous 50's silhouettes. Lydia mentioned ASOS and New Look have already snapped up her collection and selling them on line. She told me she is very excited about the launch and feels extremely lucky and grateful to have the opportunity to have her own label and design her own clothes. She said there are so many talented designers out there who are unknown so she feels extremely grateful. Lydia is very proud of her shop in Essex too and told me I should visit for the ultimate girly experience. I can't wait to!
Lydia also has her own fashion blog which I was unaware of so will now be an avid follower! Follow Lydia's style here www.lydiarosebright.co.uk
