Pulse Exhibition Event

On Monday 12th May, myself and my work gang set off for the Pulse Exhibition Event at Earls Court, London. The Exhibition Event was comprised of various businesses who set up stalls (in what was essentially just a really big hall!) my Fashion PR buddy Chloe and I went off by ourselves to source some little businesses we thought would best suit our company. It was such a fun day! We got to meet so many up-and-coming entrepreneurs with some really wonderfully unique ideas. We only had one rule - we were looking for businesses who made their products in the UK (because as a company, our ethos is; UK-based, ethically sourced products) other than that, we had free reign to decide which ones we liked. These included stalls for Jewellery, Bath and Body, Beauty, Fashion, Stationary, Lifestyle, Homeware etc. Every couple of hours, there were some really insightful talks held for companies like ours with fantastic pointers, hints and tips. I loved my day out at the Pulse Exhibition Event in London! Check out some of the photos from the day below!

See you next time!

House of Fraser • Aumtumn/Winter 2014 Event

So last week on Thursday 8th May after work, I popped down to Baker Street after being invited by a lovely lady called Glosinda at House of Fraser to attend their Press Event: Autumn/Winter 2014 Show. Set on in the centre of iconic Baker Street, it didn't take a detective to figure out that this evening was going to be spectacular. I was so excited to see what House of Fraser had in store! When I arrived I was taken through to an elevator up to the "Flats", and as soon as the doors opened I was taken aback by how beautiful their set-up was! I was instantly greeted by Glosinda (after a while of emailing!), who took me around all of the individual rooms which played host to their collections. With crisp white walls and dark oak flooring, the rooms themselves were beautiful (not even to mention the clothes!) and it was the perfect setting for their AW/14 show - the evening view over London was incredible! 

There were many collections on show - featuring Biba, Linea, Dickins & Jones, Therapy, Michael Kors, Calvin Klein, Mary Portas, Label Lab, Moschinio, Sportmax Code, Ted Baker, Marella, Maxmara, Modalu, J Brand, Pied A Terre, Paul Smith, Untold - and all were absolutely stunning and complimented each other in the rooms they were sharing. I snapped a few photographs on my way around the flats, so take a peek at my little gallery!

Although most of the rooms were bright a fresh, my personal favourite room was the slightly darker room (composed primarily of beautiful gold, black, and deep reds) specifically for Biba.

On my way around the flats, I was also offered a House of Fraser Look Book with all their new garments featured inside (which has been super helpful, and lots of fun to look through!)

Overall, I had a lovely time at the House of Fraser Autumn/Winter 2014 show. Being a little bit fashion-obsessed, it was fabulous to get a glimpse at the new collections they had to offer - suffice to say, House of Fraser have got it nailed for Autumn/Winter this year, and I can't wait until these collections are on the shelves! So keep your eyes peeled!
