A few weeks ago, I was invited to be in the audience for Gok’s Clothes Roadshow in Bristol. Cabot Circus had been taken over by crowds of people just wanting to see Gok – as you can see in the pic below!
Gok came down the escalators, followed by his models, and it seemed like everyone there whipped out their camera or mobile phone
Gok came on stage and explained what was going to happen, then allowed some time to let people take photos so they wouldn’t take them during the show. He kept walking down the stage and stopping every few steps to smile for pics!
First, three ladies from the Bristol area were given a makeover earlier in the week, and it was time for them to reveal their new look. The audience was made up mostly of their friends and family (and a few bloggers like the ladies from MyStreetChic, Frances from Fashion Fantasist and SJP of Ship Shape and Bristol Fashion (who I’ve been dying to meet for ages, but we always seemed to miss each other!). We didn’t see their original looks, but from the reactions of those who knew the ladies, it must have been impressive!
After a few takes, it was time for the fashion show section. In previous series, Gok has gone head to head with Brix Smith-Start where he has styled his models in outfits costing less than Ã‚Â£50 each, and Brix has gone for the expensive outfits, but this series, Gok has taken over the expensive outfits, and styled the models in outfits costing less than Ã‚Â£250. Without giving away which set won or how much they cost, the collection below was my favourite – I ended up getting the dress on the far right last week because I loved it so much! (Not sure where I’m going to wear it…but I never need an excuse to wear pretty dresses!)
The Bristol episode of Gok’s Clothes Roadshow will be shown tomorrow night (Tuesday 4th October) and (hopefully, I assume this link will work!) you can find out where the clothes in the show are from here, after the show has aired.
