Manchester Fashion Week report

On Thursday I was lucky enough to attend a full day of Manchester’s first ever Fashion Week, held at The Avenue in Spinningfields. With press passes, front row seats, plenty of bubbly and five fantastic fashion shows, it was an event to remember to say the least. Rather than unveiling the upcoming season’s trends (which were, of course, unveiled a while back at the big-name fashion weeks), labels presented what was essentially a live lookbook of their current in-store collections. And the best thing about Manchester’s take on the biggest events of the fashion world? At around £20 per show or £50 per day of shows, it is entirely accessible to the public.
J and I sprinted in just in time to get branded with PRESS stamps and slide smoothly into our “Reserved for Media” places in the front row of the Brooks Brothers show. Dominated by formal wear, Brooks Brothers presented a traditional, if slick, array of the reds, whites and blues of a British summer. The men’s wear was more impressive than the women’s, and this particular poolside look caught my eye for the on-trend mint green of the swimming shorts coolly combined with a shirt and bowtie for a quirky look of class.
