This weekend, I headed down to Cabot Circus to check out their 48 Hour Fashion Fix event. In the past, Cabot Circus has held fashion shows to show off the new season arrivals, but they have always been on a central stage – to shake things up, this year, the shows were outside the stores they were featuring, in a flash mob style event. I think this worked well, because it meant that people would be more likely to go into the store after the routine.
In place of the stages, there was a chance to win a handbag in Cabot Circus (which SJ managed to win!) and over in Quakers Friars was a big red beauty bus. SJ and I had a hand massage, checked out the new ranges at Nails Inc and were shown the latest products from Benefit. (We were too late to get a free eyebrow wax, sadly!) If only First offered this service on their buses – get on, and by the time you’ve reached the office, you’ve got your make up done and your eyebrows under control!
After it was all over, we headed up to Piccolinos (which I’ve never been to before, but after trying the pizzas, I have to go back again soon!) and gossiped with a few glasses of fizzy wine – what a great end to the day!
Here’s a little video of one of the dance routines – all clothes in this video were from Dorothy Perkins and Burtons.
