Bath in Fashion: S/S13 catwalk show and BIF Blogger Awards

Bath in Fashion S/S13 Catwalk Show

On Thursday I jumped on a bus and spent the afternoon in Bath, to attend the Bath in Fashion S/S13 catwalk show, and find out who had been crowned Bath in Fashions’ Blogger of the Year.

♥ If you were following the #BIFBloggers hashtag on Twitter you’ll know by now that I didn’t win (that accolade went to Lorna of Raindrops of Sapphire) but I wanted to take the opportunity to thank everyone who voted for me. I was chuffed just to be shortlisted, and I’m grateful for the tweets, Facebook messages and your comments on this blog showing your support – normal, non-‘vote for me’ service shall now resume! 

The sun was shining and it was a lovely day, so before the show I did a spot of window shopping and soaked up the sun next the impressive Bath Abbey, before arriving at the Assembly Rooms where the show was taking place. It was all a bit of a rush when I arrived – that’s the buzz of fashion shows for you – but I managed to meet Roisin and see Gabrielle, who I meet on Monday at the Mouvements de Femmes exhibition, before we took our places on the FROW.

Sat between Megan and Steph, I waited eagerly for the show to start, only to discover that I’d accidentally turned my camera on earlier in the day, so my battery was drained and cut out half way through the show. #bloggerfail

Luckily I managed to capture the first half, with each scene representing one of the four fashion capitals of the world. Brands included a mix of high street, designer and local independent labels, all styled by the lovely Rebekah Roy, who also selected the shortlist for the BIF Blogger Award.

I enjoyed the show but it ended quite abruptly, so I didn’t get a chance to congratulate Lorna or meet the rest of the shortlisted bloggers, which was a shame. It felt like the award section of the show was a bit of an afterthought, which is surprising, given how detailed the rest of the Bath in Fashion programme has been.

It would have been great to spend a bit more time getting to chat to everyone either before or after the show, but with another show to prep for I guess the turn around needed to be quite quick. Fortunately we were invited to a post-show event at Toast, where I met George and was able to have a proper natter with her.

Thanks to Bath in Fashion for a fun afternoon, and again to everyone who voted for me! Have you made it to any of the Bath in Fashion events yet?

    Really sorry you didn’t get to win. I really like the way you blend current fashion with a nod to vintage and pre-loved clothes, which not everyone does.
