Style Birmingham: Bullring Puts On An Amazing Show

A couple of weeks ago I told you guys about the Bullring’s plans to put on a fashion show sporting the autumn/winter trends featuring both real-life and holographic models. I have to admit I was a little worried about what this show would look like, I have been to many shopping centre fashion shows before, and a combination of poor models and styling has generally put me off for life, well my opinion has been changed after seeing this amazing show from the Bullring.

Not only was I impressed with the models, with the amount of outfit changes they did I was stunned that it looked so slick, I was also super pleased with the styling it was spot on for the autumn/winter trends and really worked in the great variety of stores that the Bullring has to offer. So really adding in the holographic element for me was an added bonus, don’t get me wrong it was impressive, see the pics below *my camera didn’t really like the holograms*, that is actually Tiffany from Britain’s Next Top Model. I loved the spectacular of the technology, but the real-life models really did sell the clothes to me.

The Show: Redefinition was split into seven key looks for autumn/winter – dark romance, mod squad, heritage, spot it, forties flair, mannish, decadence and the finale was all about feathers and fur. My favourite was definitely the sixties vibe of mod squad, I just love all the block colours and shift dresses.

I really love this orange look, from the 60’s shift dress with pleated skirt from Forever 21 to that gorgeous orange felt coat from Cos, which at only £135 I think that is a great price for a quality winter coat. I also love the addition of those funky grey and yellow wool socks from Forever 21 and the dark red lace up boots from Office, £85.

Another great look was this pom-pom chic vibe from Debenhams, I love it so much that the pom-pom scarf, £20 and the triple pom-pom hat, £22 have to be mine. Hey the John Rocha brown check cake with faux fur collar for £110 isn’t bad either!!! I also loved them all being styled with a leather skirt and brogues – such a great working of the heritage trend.

One of the most fun and cute sections was ‘Spot It’ and I think it was to do with the hologram being of Dalmatian puppies, all together now ahhhh!!

Forties Flair was another great section full of strong styling and pieces I want to add to my wardrobe. Top of this list is this faux-fur stole especially as it is only £12.99 from New Look, crazy price for such a great AW11 accessory. I also love that Bordeaux clutch bag from Reiss, a little more pricey at £139.

Great job Bullring, fab show and thanks for inviting me well worth the trip. If you didn’t get chance to see the show, don’t worry a video is coming soon and I will post it as soon as I receive it. You can also check out all the piccies I took of the show on my Facebook page.
