Intu Victoria Centre AW VIP Event

On Thursday the 22nd I was lucky enough to attend the AW VIP Event in Intu Nottingham. It was an event for bloggers and businesses to pop along and view the new season collections from brands within the centre. There were a variety of stalls with makeup brands showing their new launches and doing demos on all the lovely ladies at the event. I wanted to put together a little photo diary of the event to show what we got up to and talk about the exciting new launch from John Lewis.


The event started at 6pm where we were welcomed with a drink from the Thai Restaurant Thaikhun and were few to chat and walk around all of the stalls. Beauty brands such as Benefit, Lancome and Liz Earle were at the event giving demos and advice about how to use their products. It was a great opportunity to talk to the beauty consultants about the products they had on offer and get one-to-one advice on what would be best for you as an individual. 
I particularly loved trying out all of the Benefit Brow products and the Lancome Cushion Foundation and Blushers and also hearing about an exciting new launch from Liz Earle. There has certainly been a few new products added to my beauty wishlist so be expecting some higher end reviews coming soon. 
The main event was a fashion show of the new John Lewis collection called Modern Rarity. Focusing on luxury fabrics and sophisticated tailoring this collection features limited edition prints and luxurious fabrics such as Italian Cashmere. The entire collection features a range of products in subtle hues that will transition through the Autumn/Winter months into Spring 17. It has been carefully designed to feel precious and something that people could continue to wear for prolonged years and still be modern.
I love how each of the pieces have the little essence of detail either in the cut, feel of the fabric or sheer practicality of the garment itself. I have definitely added a few of the items onto my wishlist and would recommend that you have a look through the collection itself- you won't be disappointed. 

Throughout the event you were able to create your own floral crown- yes just like the snapchat filter. The amazing Amy from SuperSuperhq is certainly a craft queen and helped all of the girls at the event make amazing floral crowns to welcome in the AW season. If you want to have a look at what mine turned out like then pop on over to my Instagram to find out. 

I'd like to thank Intu Victoria Center for inviting me along to this amazing event and can't wait to add a few new pieces to my wardrobe to keep on trend this AW!
