Thursday saw the press launch of Belfast Fashion Week and I couldn’t have been more excited. I had been looking forward to this event all summer, planning an outfit idea, discussing with fellow bloggers what they would be wearing and how eager we were to see what Cathy had in store for us.
West Coast Cooler Fashion Week brings all the fashion lovers in Belfast together to celebrate style from local designers, local boutiques, affordable fashion retailers and some top sponsors. We were greeted with my all time favourite West Coast Cooler as we arrived at Bullitt Hotel. Followed by snacks from Kaffe-O and photographs from all of my favourite photographers in town!
Some of the key trends we will see this Autumn Winter include:

What I wore
I ran over to the press launch on my lunch break from work! I had to wear something suitable for the office, mixed with an upcoming autumn winter style.
Thinking of all the trends and what I had in my wardrobe, I pulled together an outfit I had never worn together. I went for ruffles! My ruffled blouse was £12.99 in Zara’s sale, my skirt was £7.99 in Stradavarius’s sale and my shoes were £7.99 in Zara’s sale too. Get me a show on BBC One because I’m the ultimate bargain hunter!
I was kindly gifted a pair of gorgeous William Morris frames by the #BFW team. I’m obsessed with frames whether its sunglasses or glasses; I think they can be used as an accessory to give an outfit a different stance.

Belfast Fashion Week is moving!
If you remember my blog post about the Ulster University Fashion Show, you’ll know it was located in St Anne’s Cathedral. WELL, exciting news…Fashion Week will now be held in the beautiful building too! The cathedral holds a bigger audience so more fashionistas will get the chance to watch the shows.
