BELFAST FASHIONWEEK 2015

Ready for a Spring fashion revamp? Walk this way...

Models are being preened, catwalks built and outfits accessorised in prep for Belfast's most stylish event of the year, West Coast Cooler FASHIONWEEK. Fashionistas are ready to take the FROW from 19-22 March for a line-up of evening catwalk shows and the return of Sushi Saturday and Style Sunday.

This year's event features local designers and independent boutiques alongside High Street names at FASHIONWEEK HQ in Bruce Street, Belfast. Citrus brights and monochrome will take centre stage in cut-out, mesh and sheer fabrics alongside 70s-inspired flares and belted waistlines. Delicate pastel and nude silhouettes contrasted with bold stripes and vintage prints, will all add to the eclectic mix. While there will be plenty of WOW factor, expect to see some very wearable, everyday designs to fill every wardrobe gap.

Even the refreshments will be stylish with a pop-up sushi and cocktail bar, courtesy of Zen, and a new 'shop the show' Boutique Alley, where guests can purchase their catwalk favourites.

Friday's show features the best of local boutiques - from Blush and Diamond Dolls to Spoilt Belle and The Style Retreat - as well as designers, Grainne Maher, Nor Lisa, Chloe Dougan and Gillian Leavy. I'm especially excited to see the work of stylist and illustrator-turned-designer, Sara O’Neill, who will showcase her Èadach collection. (Read my interview with Sara here).
