Cabot Circus Fashion Tour – AW11 Trends

As I posted on Sunday, I went to Cabot Circus to see their fashion shows. Laura was there as well, so after the first show at Quakers Friars that I saw, we went to Harvey Nichols for a cup of tea and a gossip. Yes, we are actually little old ladies.

The second show I saw was in the main Cabot Circus building, and had some gorgeous stuff.

For the men, it was all very casual wear – from knits, shirts and chinos to t-shirts, scarves and jeans. Nothing overly exciting or trendy, but all quite similar to things that my boyfriend would wear.

There was more variation with the ladies, with some gorgeous work wear from Hobbs (loved the cloche hat and black suit (top right in photo)) – not just black suits, but dresses with prints on of silhouettes and whippets (!). Gant and Guess had quite similar items, casual looks with jeans, shirts, and tweed (I love the heritage trend this season!). A|Wear had some lovely autumn-y colours, combining knitwear with shorts and chiffon with denim – this seemed a bit strange on Sunday when it was sunny but mild, but this week seems perfect! River Island finished the show with a mostly black and white colour scheme, with a huge dance routine.

The problem with these fashion shows is that I end up wanting to buy lots of new clothes!

Cabot Circus – Autumn/Winter Fashion Tour

Its that time of year again where I pretend that I know stuff about fashion…Cabot Circus invited me back to watch their Autumn/Winter Fashion Tour and blog from their back stage area. Always a bit strange having people watch you type (I’m not one of those people who will go to a coffee shop and sit there typing away!)

I caught two shows this time, the first in Quakers Friars – slightly damp, but the rain held off for the most part while the models did their thing. The second show in the main Cabot Circus area was much busier, although of course not quite as bad as when Gok Wan presented last year!

While lookbooks and fashion shoots in magazines are all very nice to look at, it’s shows like this that allow you to see the actual clothes, and how they move. I love that Cabot Circus have people dancing as well because it shows how restrictive the clothes might be!

I’ll be doing a post in the week more about the actual clothes, but for now, above is all of the models in their final outfits from the 2pm show – this was themed around red and black, and all clothes were from River Island.
