There is nothing more exciting than a fancy fashion party. Add in a runway show by Clements Ribeiro, a stellar soundtrack and one hell of a dramatic venue and you’ve got all the makings of a killer opening night. Edinburgh International Fashion Festival kicked off last night at Mansfield Traquir and it was everything I hoped it would be and more. It’s only the opening night of the fashion festival but as a taster of what’s to come babes – you should all be VERY VERY excited. I’ve already given you a run down of my top picks (like choosing between children I swear) and can’t wait to creep more of the festival in the coming weeks. Next up for me will have to be Future Fashions though hoping to maybe pop through to see some other bits and bobs this weekend.
Anyway with a fancy fashion party gal better get herself all gussied up. In 25 degree heat with a predominately Glasgow wardrobe this can be, shall we say, problematic? I must have went through 8 outfit changes (including one misguided attempt in staying cool that was mostly sheer and left little to the imagination) before setting on a wee vintage number. I think I just have to come to terms with the fact that in this heat I’m going to be cool in nothing.
By the by – the show was phenomenal and I can’t wait to share my thoughts/photos with you all (silk, embroidery, bold colours, oriental flowers, embellished collars – just OH MY WORDS AND WHISKERS.) Edinburgh International Fashion Festival is exactly what Scotland needs and I cannot wait to see more of it!
