Bristol Fashion Week

FLast week I was invited to attend a live bloggers fashion show by Bristol Fashion Week, at The Mall, Cribbs Causeway, showcasing their autumn/winter collection. Wifi was set up for bloggers so we could tweet and upload to Instragram during the show. 
The show was hosted by stylist Mark Heyes and hairdresser Andrew Barton and featured brands such as Gap, Jack Wills, Clarks, Next, Vision Express, Lipsy and John Lewis plus many more that can be found at the Mall. 
As a plus size blogger myself, it was great to see such a diverse range of fashion for all styles, sizes and budgets. Key trends for the season featured multi textures like faux fur and leather and of course lots of layers. 
Models not only looked amazing (hair styled by local salon, Tomilinson and make up by Body Shop) they put on quite a show with great choreography on the runway too. 
Those who attended were treated to some great discounts to use in a variety of stores in The Mall, mini beauty treatments and goody bags too. 
Being Bristol based, it's great to support events like these, held by brands that I shop with. 
I attended the show with fellow blogger Charlotte from Black Heart Creatives
