Can’t afford to go to London? Me neither. I’m not saying I’m not going to be enjoying LFW coverage on le old blogs and twitter, but for the most part most of this fashion chat seems to happen south of the border – which is why Bold Souls pre London Fashion Week pop up this Thursday is such a splendid idea. With time and travel funds being a bit of an issue for me at the moment – having a city with a culturally rich and diverse fashion community certainly eases on the old purse strings and lifts the spirits. Featuring some old faces – ChouChou returning with their signature Holly Hoods, as well as some welcome newbies like Eleanor’s Riot and their 60’s school girl inspired designs – Bold Souls remains innovative and fresh – allowing us Glasgow lasses a chance to see our fave (or soon to be faves) indie designers up close and personal. What I love about this event is the chance to chat to the designers, learn a bit more about the craftsmanship…oh and of course the trying on all the lovely things. Buying direct from the designer is a wonderful concept and I love finding out about some Scottish talent that’s off my radar. If you’re in to you’re indie fashon and have a spare 3 punds to your name, head down to the Arches cafe bar, 15th September between 4pm and 9pm.
