Belfast Fashion Week – Top Picks!

This year at West Coast Cooler FASHIONWEEK, I worked as a dresser backstage for both the Local Designer and High Street Shows, but decided to attend the Excel Clothing show, the final catwalk show.

Belfast Fashion WeekIt is always hard to see how collections come together as you catch a glimpse on the rail before the show, or you see the model rushing past, either on their way to the catwalk line-up or to change ready for the next run! So when the PR shots come in (thanks CMPR and Brendan Gallagher!), it’s lovely to see the final look. But that is also part of the reason I decided to attend a show.

Waiting for the show to begin…
