Bristol Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2013!

Yesterday evening I attended the blogger show at Bristol Fashion Week A/W 2013 with Brownie of Soul Sparkler. I always love going to BFW and after visiting London Fashion Weekend last week (and being majorly disappointed), I was keener than ever to drool over the Autumn/Winter must-haves on display.

Although LFWend is great for shopping (there are lots of discounted brands), the catwalk show was a huge let down. It was just darn right boring and over really quickly. I guess I expected more from a show which must have a substantially bigger budget than the one we have in Bristol. The presenter seemed like a nice enough girl but there was none of the banter that Andrew Barton and Mark Heyes have at Bristol Fashion Weekand those London models? Zzzzz...

I've selected a few of my favourite outfits from the Bristol show which was full of energy, dancing and fun! Mark and Andrew were constantly giving hair/fashion tips and advice in between trends and as always they had awesome chemistry.

Tartan at Bristol Fashion Week AW13

I was happy to see lots of animal print, leather, embellishment and my favourite trend for this season - tartan! Marks and Spencer have some gorgeous coats at the moment, many of which were featured but my favourite is thPer Una Speziale Belted Coat shown above. I'd feel like the White Witch of Narnia in that beaut.

I had so much fun hanging out with some of my stylish blogger pals, especially the gorgeous Lorna of Raindrops of Sapphire and Amie of Credit Crunch Chic. Bristol Fashion Week ends tomorrow so you'll still have time to watch a show if you live local. I'd definitely recommend it!

Does your city have a fashion week? What's your favourite trend for AW13?

  13. Bristol does look WAY better than LFWeekend, I was really disappointed with the show too. And, tbh, the emphasis on BUY BUY BUY kind of took away from the true attraction - the admiration of the collections! <3 Claire @ Jazzpad
