Event: Merry Hill SS15 Fashion Preview

My outfit for the evening - Coat and T Shirt - New Look / Jeans - Matalan / Shoes - Primark / Bag -Mulberry

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:

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.

Dress - Oasis / Boots - Primark / Sunglasses - Peacocks

Now that you've seen some key looks for SS15, what will you be wearing this season?


  1. I was so sad to miss this event - looks like great fun! Love that dress on you too! X

  2. You look lovely in that coat and your bag goes so well with your shoes. Oh and Rachel went to the event, too, always happy when I see and recognise familiar faces. I love fashion shows, they are always a lot of fun. Your 70's inspired outfit is superb, too. It looks so summery hope the weather stays that nice for the next 4-5 months.
