IonfashIon: Norwich Fashion Week Launch Show 2013

Last night after getting home from work later than expected (and also a quick nap) I got ready as quickly as I could for the Launch Show of Norwich Fashion Week 2013. Norwich Fashion Week is designed to show off what Norwich has to offer fashion wise; through the retailers such as Jarrolds and John Lewis, the students at NUA and CCN as well as the independent stores that have their homes in the medieval lanes of Norwich.

I wore my new print trousers from H&M along with a dark grey slub t-shirt from Primark. I had also made a small clutch bag from the turquoise faux leather that mum had left from when she had done her car up. Unfortunately I ended being in such a rush (should only have had an hour nap instead of two) I didn't manage to snap any photos of my outfit but have got this:
I want to live in these trousers, as they are so comfortable and look amazing on. I think I need more print trousers.

The Launch Show featured set from shops such as Vanilla, Ginger, Nola, Love Couture, John Lewis showed some items from the Somerset by Alice Temperley, Jarrold and a few others.

Here are some snaps taken on my iPhone, I will link to some of my favourite looks on the Norwich Evening News website.

 Love the print trousers from Vanilla
 Stunning red dress from the Somerset by Alice Temperley collection
 I love the detailing on the sleeves of this Somerset by Alice Temperley. The hair also reminds me of the Marc by Marc Jacobs Autumn/Winter 2013 look. Very deconstructed 40's
This mustard skirt from Nola.

Jarrold womenswear featured an incredible printed blazer which I only got one horrible blurred photo from and nothing else. But that whole set was styled incredibly, it had these subtle Lolita influences wouldn't you agree?

I really enjoyed my evening at the launch show and it is only through the efforts of everyone; who organised it, worked it and took part in it, that the whole show was a wonderfully slick professional evening.

Tonight I'm going to be at the Norwich Lanes Fashion show, but more about that tomorrow, for now I need to get ready and most importantly eat something.

Speak soon lovelies.
