St David's Pre-Fashion Show Event

Last night I was lucky enough to be invited to the St David's Summer Fashion Show Pre Show Event. Where the stylist JP talked us through the big summer trends that he will be showing on the St David's Catwalks this weekend. We had drinks, some sushi and all round fashion chat, it was a great fun evening, so thanks to St David's and the Graylings staff.

Here is the low down of the trends they think will be huge this summer

Bright Bold Colours
Think bright, think bold. Either in stunning jewel tones or shocking neons if your brave enough.
Go for one bright block colour item, pair separates in 2 bold block colour or just add a second colour in your accessories!

Girly Pastels
Think sorbet, bleached out colours: pink, blue, green, yellow and lilac lend them selves well to this trend. Try to look out for vintage silhouettes and girly separates that can be paired together to make sweet looking pastel outfits.

Summer Tailoring
Look out for sexy short suits with beautiful tailoring in soft colours. Pair with a pastel or floral shirt for a double trend whammy and an ultra feminine look.

Whether you like bold, dainty, abstract or graphic floral print is going to be huge (as always) this summer. So look out for floral separates to try the floral clash trend. Or try a beautiful feminine floral dress for a more understated girly look.

Maxi & Pattern Clash
Maxi's will be everywhere (again) this summer. These are perfect for a day out shopping then straight on to a night out. And this one is a pattern clash too, a tribal type print the a bold almost neon stripe in the middle - a really beautiful dress, that would help you stay cool in a stylish way.
 Not so much a trend this time but they will also be showing Coast's new wedding dress collection on the catwalks this weekend.
This beautiful grecian style gown is one of the ones on show!


The accessories are pretty much the same as the trends. Either bold and bright, pastel or floral! But the most important thing is just to have fun!

Hair Trends
Messy buns and plats all the way. But have fun with your hair - like this zigzag plat and don't worry about it all being smooth and tidy.
 One of my fellow bloggers played model to the stylist and had heidi-esq style plats done.

So is anyone going to be attending the catwalk shows this weekend? They will be running 11- 4 Saturday and 12 - 4 Sunday, inside and outside St David's. You can find more details on the site here.

Will you be wearing these trends?

Have a nice weekend!

p.s. Is anyone else peeved with the new blogger interface! Mine got changed this week and I hate it. Lining up images on either side of the page causes all sorts of chaos! Very annoying!

  1. Loved all of the Reiss items, so pretty. You know I;m attending and I'm very scared! xx

  2. I love the shirt in photo 4 and the dress in photo 7! ;)

    And YES! I SO hate the new interface, grr! It's terrible! And so not suitable for my phone :/. Whenever I want to check things, it takes ages for my phone to show me the page I want.

    Hope you have an awesome weekend! ;D

  3. Thanks for the helpful nice to be invited to a fashion event. I pretty much like all the summer trends...brights and florals seems to be the trend every summer. I like the pattern clash but it 's probably the hardest to achieve for an outfit.



Thanks for reading. please leave comments as they really make my day, and I try to visit every one of your blogs too!
