Fashions Finest SS18 – Day One

Have you ever been to a fashion show? There’s a certain electric buzz in the air and everyone is dressed to the nines, excited for the upcoming event.

Held in De Vere Grand Connaught Rooms, Fashions Finest held their shows over two days showcasing up and coming designers and their collections. Being right at the front and being able to see the designs were astounding and there are really talented designers out there.

Fashions Finest is built on bringing these designers into the spotlight, boasting an array of diversity and ethnicity which is something that is much needed in the fashion industry.

Day 1 flew past in a flurry – a blur of music, colour and talent. The first show I attended displayed collections from Marina Willms, Rose Appleton, Fleur Angelique and Unbridaled Couture.

The collections shown were classic and elegant, clearly showing each designer’s ability –  Marina Willms’ latest collection, ROSE, is inspired by her family history and you can see that reflected in the styles. I particularly loved the colours used and the slight fairytale-esque feel surrounding her pieces.

The day wrapped up with the launch of the Prince’s Trust’s first fashion collective featuring the likes of Babydol Clothing, Quillattire, Vimpelova, ByVarga, War & Drobe, Sheree Robinson Knitwear, Fifth and Rosie Red Corsetry.

From fun festival clothes to help you live your best life from Babydol Clothing to the sleek retro inspired streetwear from Quillattire, all the collections showcased amazing pieces. Culminating in Rosie Red Corsetry’s catwalk which featured two plus-sized models, Olivia Campbell and Georgina Horne, the day was everything I never knew I needed.
