Cabot Circus Fashion Weekender – Day 1

Submitted by on Saturday, 25 September 2010 | One Comment

Cabot Circus opened just two years ago and already it has become the most fashionable location in the South West. Today we’ve been celebrating with Cabot Circus’ Fashion Weekender, presented by none other than fashion guru Gok Wan, which has been showcasing all of the latest highstreet fashions and trends available from the stores in the area.

First to take to the runway was ‘Retro Cool’ from Urban Outfitters with shoes provided by Jones and Schuh. Playsuits teamed with brogues were a hot trend on the catwalk while warm knitted cardigans were a staple for every outfit. Keeping with the upcoming winter trends, Jane Norman provided the ultimate winter essentials with cool knit dresses, skinny jeans and cute ankle socks for their ‘Winter Warming’ collection.

‘Brits in Autumn’ by Espirit worked a more casual look with an interesting preppy twist. Teaming denim shirts and joggers together with boy-ish brogues created an individual, everyday style.

The ‘Business’ collection by TM Lewin & Gary Weber provided the ultimate in sophisticated work wear. Candy cane striped shirts teamed with trousers, a smattering of patent bags and glamorous skyscraper heels.

One of the most popular highstreet stores, Dorothy Perkins, provided their ‘Boho Winter’ collection for the Cabot Circus catwalk. The models sported waist length rain macs with scrumptious knitted jumpers and cardigans as well as the latest in aviator fashion – including fur and sheepskin gilets.

The ultra glamorous A|Wear provided a collection perfect for the party season. Their models rocked up the catwalk wearing the latest trends, including dramatic capes and girly floral dresses. The statement pieces of the collection were the embellished jumpsuits teamed with heavy accessories and faux fur jackets.

Last but not least, highstreet giant House of Fraser provided their ‘Utility’ collection, complete with glamorous work wear that could easily be turned into nightwear with the removal of a jacket or addition of sexy heels. Sequins and smart tailoring worked brilliantly with the military twist found in khaki shirts, jackets and shorts.

Overall, Cabot Circus provided the ultimate in fashion for the thousands of spectators out and about today. We loved House of Fraser’s glamorous take on work wear as well as the ‘Brit Club’ collection provided by Bank, Henleys and the Officers Club. The fashion provided by these highstreet stores is heavily influenced by the catwalks of the recent London and New York Fashion Weeks – all at a great price and right here on our doorstep!
