On the seats where little goodie bags filled with some Neal Yard delights which I cannot wait to try, it always really wonderful to see brands getting involved and contributing towards events such as this one.
The show got off to a great start with some amazing outfits and I loved the layout of one model walking vintage, then the next high street and then together and so forth, there were a few technical problems with the sound skipping and at one point stopping altogether but I don't think that put anyone off and the models handled it really well, carrying on and they soon sorted the issue out and I don't think it effected the overall success of the day. I have to say we where very impressed with the styling of the models from the Cardiff Fashion students and there where so many pieces I would love to own (so will be visiting all those vintage shops soon). One of the highlights for both John and I was the Vintage Hair styles and make-up done by the SAKS academy, it must of taken them hours, the models really looked like they where from the 1950's, it was quite amazing, I really want to grow my hair long now just so I can sport one of the vintage do's. During the short break the audience was entertained by the very talented Chloe Swaby, I have to say when the said there was going to be a singer I got quite nervous because about 3 years ago I attended a catwalk show during London Fashion Week and they had a singer and she was awful, it was embarrassing, but I am very happy to say that was not the case with Chloe who has supported Tinchy Stryder and Kate Nash.
Here are some of my favourite looks from the show...
