#MCRFW Official Dates

#MCRFW Official Dates

So, as some of you may know already I have been given the honour of becoming an official blogger for Manchester Fashion Week 2013 and I have some exciting news!

The official dates have been released...

From April 22nd - 26th Manchester Fashion week 2013 will take place at the much loved Manchester Urbis building. As a once popular hang out spot and host to some great exhibitions I for one am thrilled that this exciting event is taking place in a spot so close to home.

Throughout the 5 day event Urbis shall be transformed into 'the place to go' hosting 30 fashion shows and 15 exhibition spaces... it sounds so exciting and I cannot wait! (...I've already started to plan my outfits for the week).

The great news doesn't stop here though as I have also been informed that this year's head of fashion will be the Kirsty Attwood (from NET-A-PORTER), having had over a decade of experience working with luxury brands and high profile clientele around the world I think she'll make the perfect head for this years Manchester Fashion Week.

"Kirsty can relate to the designers she works with as she has her own womenswear brand Kirstmairie which has adorned numerous celebrity clients. Her creative approach and vision to a life in fashion has seen her career evolve through many areas of this exquisite industry."

Kirsty is very excited to be a part of the MCRFW team:

"The inspiration behind MCRFW offers such a foundation to this companies structure it has huge potential to have an integral and impact-full contribution to the industry as a whole, over the next year I hope to build those relationships to not only establish the industries professionals based in the north but give a platform to new talent"

This year will see MCRFW house it's usual extravaganza of fashion catwalk and shopping with a few surprises from the MCRFW team, to celebrate the building of the new website and blog plus the launch of MCRFW Hosts.

#1 Be bold in Black and White

#1 Be bold in Black and White
You may have noticed already that a big competitor in the trends for Spring/Summer 2013 is going to be the Monochrome trend...
...with more and more black & white pieces slowly cropping up in the best high street stores it's apparent that this trend is most definitely going to be a favourite this year.
On the catwalks in late 2012 is where this trend first appeared with designers such as Balenciaga, Marc Jacobs and Celine showcasing this heavily contrasted look to it's best...

Marc Jacobs


The beauty of this trend is that it's so broad anybody can easily buy into it...
You could follow Celine and buy separates in block colours; either black or white, they could then easily be mixed and matched to create the ultimate monochrome outfit.
Another way to stay well on trend (and my particular favourite) is to buy individual items that feature both black and white block colours together. Be careful to go for something too crazy though or you could end up looking more like a walking optical illusion!
Here's my favourite pieces available to buy now:




Vintage Moschino
