We're at that awkward time of year between seasons, and although we're ready to let go of AW15, we may still be deciding what to wear for SS15.
Help was at hand at Intu Merry Hill shopping centre when they recently hosted a Spring Summer catwalk on the 28th and 29th March. Luckily, I was able to catch a glimpse of the latest looks at a special fashion preview event along with some fellow bloggers.
Hosted in a secret room inside the centre, we made our way into a hidden room to find a bloggers paradise including a photobooth, cupcakes, canapes, champagne....and a catwalk!
Here are some of the pictures taken by Cotswold Allure:
Flanked by mannequins dressed head to toe in looks from some of the high street's best stores, we were treated to a look at SS15 as interpreted by River Island, New Look, Oasis and more.
With everyone perched delicately on front row seats (they know how to make us feel like VIP's!), we watched key looks from 10 retailers strut down the catwalk on the backs of some very glam models.
Styled by Lola Royle, here's a (picture heavy) rundown of what to expect this season:
Floral Dress and Bright Blazer
Clashing Floral Prints
Tropical Print Co - ord
Pretty Floral Shift
Jungle Prints and a Duster Coat
Clashing Tropical Prints and a Duffle Bag
Sleek 70's Prints and a Longline Blazer
Colour and Print
Pink Floral Coord - my favourite! Image co Cotswold Allure
Festival Tropical - Image co Cotswold Allure
Fringing and Platforms - so 70's!
Paint Splatter Coord
I felt so inspired by the event that I went ahead and styled up an outfit for SS15 based on the denim and 1970's trend.
