On Wednesday night, I was invited along to the hip Bar Soho in central London to the Joe Browns #BloggerFunfair. I was in London all day for meetings and things so I had just about enough time to nip home, change and top up my makeup! I wore my favourite jumpsuit from ASOS and my trusty little black fedora which is sadly falling apart, boo!
The catwalk was made up of five models who modelled the collection. Joe Browns are very much known for their use of bold colours, in your face patterns and the classic 1950 shapes in dresses. The AW collection is featured around the theme of 'Funfair' so the colour palette used was a mix of a lot of blues and reds. Common patterns making up the collection saw a lot of classic floral on their dresses. There were a few classic 1950's shaped dresses but they have also introduced the slightly smarter and figure hugging tunic style of dress too.
There is even a men's collection which was great to see as Joe Browns is a brand which appeals to both men and women. There was a lot of checkered tartan patterns on shirts for men which comes around every year for AW! It was also lovely to see the use of tweed in blazers and waistcoats as it represents a true British style for Joe Browns.
I filmed most of the looks on the catwalk which you can watch here!
I finally met up with lovely Jess from Coffee and Cosmetics who I've known for six whole years! It was also her birthday so it was an extra excuse to have some mid-week cocktails on a school night!
The barman was super duper nice and made me what he called "special cocktails". My favourite he made me was called "The Woo Woo Special" which had archers, pineapple juice and lime in.
We then found a really pretty mirror which obviously meant the ultimate selfie taking! Would have been rude not to, no?
The event was really good and it was so lovely to meet the team at Joe Browns! It finished up at 9pm so we took an adventure around Soho and had dinner at Wagamamas. Obviously I ordered what every ever blogger always orders... the famous chicken katsu curry which went down a treat!
Thank you so much to Emily at Joe Browns for inviting me! :)
