Glam Spy: Bath

7th April 2011

In honour of the impromptu gorgeous weather, we had an impromptu glam spy sesh yesterday afternoon.

We saw so many lovely ladies out on the street, it was almost impossible to pick the best ones! Such a great mix of interesting looks and styles. Check them out in our gallery:

Hot street style at Bristol Fashion Week

25th March 2011

After watching a fab catwalk show for Bristol Fashion week, we took to the Mall at Cribbs Causeway to find out what’s hot on the high street with our Bristol Fashionistas. Here are our findings:

  • Hareem trousers are quite literally everywhere in all types of fabrics and colours. They’re being worn with basic tees or floaty blouses and statement handbags.
  • As the current weather is glorious, Bristol street stylistas are ditching heavy winter coats in favour of belted long cardigans, denim jackets and blazers. We saw a lot of girls accessorising with printed scarves.
  • Maxi skirts are proving to be hugely popular – in particular, soft fabric maxis from Zara.
  • As for footwear, pumps were the order of the day – ranging from simple ballet pumps to moccasins.
  • According to the girls we spoke to, their favourite shops are Miss Selfridge, River Island and H&M.

Take a look at our street style inspired gallery to see who’s wearing what and where to get the hottest key pieces in Bristol:

Bath in Fashion video

14th March 2011

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock for the past few days, you can’t have failed to notice that Bath in Fashion is about to start. This five day event (running from 23 – 27 March) will celebrate all things stylish in our sister city. To kick of the proceedings, our pals at Bath in Fashion have shared a video of the street stylistas in their city explaining what makes the city so special. Controversially, one bloke in the clip claims it’s more trendy than Bristol. On yer bike, Bath!

Bath in Fashion

7th March 2011

London, New York, Paris, Milan…….Bath?

With its grand Georgian architecture and stunning surroundings, it’s easy for us to view Bath as a sophisticated place to be. But, did you also know that in Jane Austen times, Bath was seen as THE place to be for fashion and style?

Austen used Bath as the setting for both Persuasion and Northanger Abbey, both of which depict Bath as the most socially important place to see and be seen. One couldn’t possibly leave the house without looking one’s best – which is a great historical testament to the evolution of street style!

Fast forward two hundred years to 2011 and Bath is seeking to reclaim that fashion crown.

Now in its second year running, Bath in Fashion will be a five-day event spectacular to celebrate Bath Fashion Week (23-27th March).  Highlights include a chance to see modern 21st Century fashion paraded on historical pavements at the headline fashion show at the Roman Baths on 24th March. Spring and summer collections by many of Bath’s favourite high street names will take the floor in the Octagon at Milsom Place on 23rd March and for the more urban fashionistas, we recommend you head to SouthGate on 25th March where models will strut their stuff to music provided by Moles.

For the up and coming designers-to-be, Professor Julian Roberts will be holding a Subtraction Cutting Master Class on 26th March.

On the 24th March, super-stylist Rebekah Roy will be joining forces with London Fashion Week producer John Walford  to discuss the ins-and-outs of working behind the scenes of top international fashion shows.

We’ll be covering a number of the events, as well hitting the streets for a Glam Spy sesh. So stay tuned for the latest news and gossip surrounding the event and visit www.bathinfashion.co.uk for further details of events plus tickets, times and locations.
