I went to the Clothes Show last weekend and it was absolutely amazing! The theme of the main performance was Hollywood Movie Night, and when I went into the theatre I wasn't quite sure what to expect but I was more than pleased by the show. There was a great variety of costumes, impressive choreography, elaborate sub-themes... lots and lots of shirtless men (on and off the catwalk, ooer...)
I was thrilled by the fact that the show was presented by the legendary Gok Wan (who you can just about see in the 5th + 6th photos - he's wearing black jeans and a silver blazer). I was also impressed by the way the director had incorporated the shows sub-themes with current fashion trends such as; the Americana look, shearling & aviator jackets, underwear as outerwear, structured tailoring, the seasonal sequin craze and a wonderful array of luxe evening gowns...
After the show we went around the pop-up shops, which were a bit like giant market stalls. It was a total frenzy! Verrrry difficult to navigate through, as frantic people were rushing about in all directions, but I managed to acquire a few items, including; an LED belt (which I'm giving to my brother for Christmas), a gorgeous red box-bag, and an iridescent black tutu skirt - which turned out to be slightly see-through but at least I can use it to add volume beneath some of my more basic skirts / dresses.
