Free Fashion & Beauty Event
Saturday, 25 March 2017
I was invited to intu Eldon Square for the launch of their exciting SS17 Walk-In Wardrobe Fashion Experience. The event basically involves having an (amazing, btw) stylist on site from now until the close of the event on 1 April.
During the event we got an insight into what the workshops will be about, top fashion and styling tips for SS17 and beauty demonstrations from the lovely MUA's at Bobbi Brown. Afterwards we got to play with the Bobbi Brown products, and can I just say, I bloody love their Illuminating Moisture Balm - I definitely think I will be returning to purchase it.
The walk-in wardrobe itself is located just outside of New Look and hosts sections dedicated to the biggest SS17 trends including florals, pink, athleisure (the new sports luxe) and 80s, while stylist, Emma is on hand hosting workshops and dishing out advice on which pieces will suit you, your body shape and skin tone etc.
I didn't actually realise how much psychology/science went into styling, but when you think about it, it's really quite obvious - if you wear a dress with a large print, for example, this is gonna make you look smaller, while a ditsy print will make you look bigger. Other advice Emma can give is how to draw the eye to a specific focal point on your body (I'm still deciding which part of myself I would actually like people to notice) and what shades of the season's favourite colours will best suit you, so for example, pink is a massive colour this season, in any shade, but if you're pale and blonde, you should go for a pastel/blush tone, while if you're dark like me, you should opt for fuchsia.
It's also a great idea to pop along if you're going on holiday - Emma can teach you exactly which type of swimwear will give you the perfect beach bod.
In addition to the fashion masterclasses, there will be beauty experts from brands including Elemis, Liz Earle, NARS and Benefit providing workshops, demonstrations, free pamper sessions and advice on everything from how to create an all-day long-lasting makeup look to creating the perfect, on-trend day-to-night look.
