Bristol Fashion Week AW15 : Accessorize Preview

Tuesday 29 September 2015

Last week after work I headed to The Mall at Cribbs Causeway for a Bristol Fashion Week AW15 preview at Accessorize! It's always nice to see my favourite Bristol bloggers and I couldn't wait to hear more about this season's fashion show.

I try to head to BFW every season and this year the beautiful Denise Van Outen will be joining Mark Heyes to present the show. There will be 17 catwalk shows which will be full of this season's hottest trends featuring carefully selected pieces from The Mall's high street stores. If you haven't been before, make the effort. It's way better than London Fashion Week (LFW guys - make note) & the tickets are a lot more affordable too!

I love Accessorize, I have a bazillion of their fedoras and my Christmas stocking is always full of sparkly bits and bobs from them. They've recently launched a new makeup range which is really impressive - can you spot the tinted kitty lip balm in the bottom corner of the makeup stand!? The girls in store treated us to nibbles and Prosecco while we browsed their 'new ins'. They really are the most friendly bunch of Accessorize staff I've come across & they are so knowledgeable. It's worth mentioning that I always receive top-notch customer service when I'm in there.

Clair & I (follow her blog, she's a laugh a minute) were wandering around snapping pics of our favourite pieces when I fell in love with that adorable robot novelty bag! NEED. Accessorize also have lots of wedding worthy clutch bags and of course, that hella cool ear cuff... Wedding day inspo anyone!? 

So which trends can you expect to see at Bristol Fashion Week?

70's Chic - My favourite boho trend of S/S 15 which isn't going anywhere this A/W. It's been given a little bit of an update so expect lots of layering, long-line scarves, fringing, suede accessories and chunky knits. 

Noir - Two words = Gothic glamour. Meet my second favourite trend for Autumn/Winter 15! Expect leather, lace & velvet with some luxury knitwear thrown in for good measure. I'm excited to see this on the catwalk.

High Shine - It's almost party season so get ready to embrace sequins & metallics but try mixing them with knitwear and more casual pieces for a metallic luxe vibe. I'm a huge fan of this trend because I love wearing chunky sweaters over sequin skirts!

Ladylike Luxe - Opulent winter florals & faux fur (the more, the better in my opinion) paired with polo necks & cinched-waists. Think glamorous 1940s Femme Fatale. Foooooxy! J & I will be embracing this trend as it gets colder.

These are just 4 of my favourite trends, you'll also be able to see outfits featuring Practically Perfect (statement pieces including jackets & boots for everyday wear), Suited & Booted (tailoring - pussybow blouses and cigarette trousers) and Just an Illusion (60s style optical prints)!

This Autumn's Bristol Fashion Week runs from Wednesday 30th September - Sunday 4th October with several shows a day. Tickets start from just £8.95 & everyone gets a goody bag, cocktail and snacks! What a bargain. For more info & to book your tickets, click HERE.

T - Thanks to The Mall & Accessorize for inviting me along! See you later this week for some more Bristol Fashion Week fun.
