St Albans Fashion Week 2015



On Thursday 29th October at 7.30pm I seated myself 2nd row to the front from the catwalk in St Albans Abbey. I was very familiar with the Abbey as my school holds services there often, however, I had never experienced a catwalk in the beautiful, archaic building. 

The pieces showcased were from local companies and retailers and also graduates from a local college, also. The likes of French Connection, Jigsaw, D. Copperfield and many more were there with models strutting down the sleek, white catwalk.

I particularly loved the bridal portion of the show because beautiful embellishments were used on all the garments which sparkled under the lights, a beautiful sight. I also loved the French Connection Womenswear because it was on trend and had a mixture of different outfits for different occasions.

The fashion show was a great success and I felt proud to be supporting the retailers in the town I feel so fondly for.
