This weekend Telford shopping centre are holding a Lifestyle and fashion event. Instead of the conventional models down a runway fashion show, Telford Shopping Centre have created 3 pop up zones where they showcase 3 different capsules looks and on-trend pieces. I was lucky enough to be asked to do a little bit of a blog post and I’ve also created a little video to capture some of the trending looks at the moment. The shows are every 20 minutes throughout the day so you have no excuse on missing one during your shopping time at the Town Centre!
The first capsule located on New Row (Near House of Fraser) and is a mix of autumnal tones and animal print. The models strutted their stuff to the music while showcasing what they were wearing. With pieces from Zara, River Island and much more. The capsule embodies the latest trend of Animal prints and the soft autumn tones of the season. Camels, khakis and beige where the woman rocked pieces with the ever so trendy animal print. Key pieces for me was the Zara print joggers and River Island Bomber Jacket outfit.
The second capsule is located in Dean Street(Outside M&S and Primark) and is a mix of metallics and winter layering. The models came out and did a big dance routine, which I thought was very clever as it kinds of gives you an idea to what the clothes would look like in movement instead of being rigid, after all, this was where they showcased some occasion-wear and no doubt people would want to see how it would stand up to some dance moves. With pieces from M&S, Primark and House of Fraser the dance routine went down a storm and really showcased the clothes well. Some of the models were wearing this season’s hottest trend and that is the metallics and others were wearing coats and scarves for the layering element. Key pieces/outfits for me was the M&S shearling coat (very biased as I work there) and the Primark green embroidered bomber jacket outfit.
The final capsule is located in Sherwood Square (Outside Next and Sports Direct) and is a mix of street and pretty embroidered pieces. The models also did a big dance routine for this display too. They picked some of the key trends for this street wear look which was Joggers with tailoring staples and also embroidered jeans which are very big at the moment. Pieces from New Look, Tag and Next taking centre stage on the basketball court-shaped dance floor. Key pieces from there were the Next embroidered lion bomber jacket for kids and the Burgundy overcoat from New Look.
I really enjoyed being a guest blogger for the Town Centre, I really enjoyed watching the shows and I hope it inspires more people to think differently about how to style their clothes and how to pick up on key trends. I’ve put together a short video of the shows to give you a little sneak peek of what’s in store for you if you head on down to Telford this weekend.
