So last week was crazily hectic for me, as I had the awesome job of DJing for Cambridge Style Week during the evenings, which means I also got to be right in the action, meet some fabulous people and be a part of some amazing catwalk shows! I absolutely love the excitement of a fashion show, and being able to choose the right music and set the mood for each collection/designer was an amazing privilege.
First up was Wednesdays 'Celebration of Colour'. Here were my highlights;
PAYSA Wearable Art
PAYSA Wearable Art had some absolutely beautiful designs which exploded with colour on the catwalk. With some fab photos from Dean Ireland-Photography !
The show sponsors, Clamp Optometrists also showcased some amazing eyewear on the catwalk too!
Thursdays 'Celebration of Design'
Thursday was a pretty unique day as it was also a charity gala for the NSPCC and Born to Be Beautiful. These are really lovely causes and the evening also featured a very entertaining auction where a decent amount of money was raised to support these charities. The show itself also showcased local student designers as well as local boutiques 'My One and Only' and 'Cuckoo Clothing'.
The below pictures are taken from the ARU Fashion Design Students collection. The shapes and cuts of some of the outfits were quirky and eccentric which made for an impressive catwalk show.
I can't find the names of the above and below designers but I loved these pieces too.
Also loved these matching dresses from My One and Only.
Fridays 'Celebration of Form'
Friday was all about swimwear and underwear, which was great, especially as we gradually move into summer :) The below photos were selections taken by Dean Ireland Photography.
