Last week I had a pleasure of attending Bristol Fashion Week's Live Blogging show - an opportunity for local bloggers to live tweet and Instagram the catwalk using the hashtag #BFWAW14. The show was a vibrant affair showcasing the new season collections from dozens of retailers at the Mall Cribbs Causeway, presented with creative flair and a whole lot of life. My favourite scenes featured models in quintessentially British garb, clutching takeaway coffee cups against a lively London backdrop, and a vividly autumnal scene, with models in decadent layers with autumn leaves in their tousled hair. Singers and dancers also brought the catwalk to life.
More than anything else, I love these events for the opportunity to mingle with other local bloggers, journalists, businesses, and other like minded people. Last week I attended Blog Club for the first time, which was such a positive experience, especially since my anxiety has held me back from attending in the past. Putting myself out there and becoming more familiar with local names in the community is exactly what I need right now, and it's been the perfect way to kick off my final year of studying in Bath!
