Brighton Fashion Week
When the invitation to Brighton Fashion Week dropped into my inbox, I replied with a big YES! within the minute, any excuse for a trip to the seas right? But when I looked closer, I realised I could only go for the first day, boo.
Though it was only a fleeting visit, I managed to make it to the VIP opening with fellow Sketchbook writer Mariana (twitter people may know her better as @Emmes11) to drink champagne, have a sneak preview at all of the best designer's clothes and rub shoulders with Brighton's most fabulous. We had a lovely evening, which very quickly (after a few complimentary champagnes and vodka red bulls...) turned into night.
But, enough about us, time to focus on the designers in hand. I am so gutted I had to miss the runway shows, I've been looking at all of the official photographs from the event and it looks incredible. The images above, courtesy of Nick B Photography, are my favourite pieces from the shows and I thought I'd share each designer with you, in the same order as the images above you'll be pleased to know...
Jez Eaton wows the audience with incredible costume like designs with her 'Trashion' show made out of found objects like Lidl plastic bags, Kettle chip packets, broken umbrellas and lampshades.
Nikolo Bertok layers and gathers fabric to perfection.
Meganne Murrin completely stunned me with the beautiful, feather clad designs.
Flik Hall uses hair, leather and baby pink in her work. What more could I ask for?
Studio 805 a brand I've loved since I saw them show at Vauxhall Fashion Scout a few seasons ago, so creative, unique and eye catching.
Joanne Fleming brings some ethereal, feminine beauty to Brighton with her ruffled, raw edged dresses.
Playsuit Parlour have the cutest, perfect for summer pieces that you probably need in your life.
Joy Williams who can resist heavy duty fashion? I love it.
I am so pleased to be involved with Brighton Fashion Week, bring on next year!
