There are literally so many fantastic fashiony things happening this weekend, I defy you not to find an event you want to go to.
Let us start with Bristol Fashion Week at Cribbs. I’m off to the BFW blogging event tomorrow afternoon, but there are also plenty of chances to attend catwalk shows over the weekend. Expect banter from Mark Heyes and Andrew Barton, pampering, high street heros and a healthy dollop of M&S. That would be a dollop of clothes, not of their scrumptious desserts, though you could always pop over to their food hall while you’re there… For more information and to book tickets, click here.
Next up, you all know how I’ve been banging on about Norman Parkinson’s An Eye For Fashion exhibition at M Shed, yes? Well this weekend marks the jewel in the exhibition’s crown, as M Shed hosts their first Vintage Weekend. On Saturday (and Sunday) Blind Lemon Vintage will be hosting a 50s and 60s themed vintage fashion market, with portrait photography by the talented Matilda Temperley and a vintage salon where you can match your hair do to your outfit. Dress in vintage and you’ll also knock £1 off the £5 entry fee to An Eye For Fashion. For more info and to view the full programme of events, click here.
Finally, how would you like to be crowned Alternative Miss Bristol? This tounge in cheek night is taking place at the The Cube, as part of their Fabulous Fortnight. Borrowing from Andrew Logan’s Alternative Miss World ‘anything goes’ concept, contestants are invited to bedeck themselves in outfits that best represent the area of Bristol they connect with. Tickets are £4 in advance and £5 on the door and I’m assured that the night promises ‘glitter, glamour and general bloody brilliant party fun’.
