The Art of Denim McArthurGlen


As I mentioned in my last post, designer outlet brand McArthurGlen is hosting a super cool event from the 5th – 2oth October called The Art of Denim, where their UK stores are making denim shopping extra fun. They’ve got a DONNA IDA pop-up shop at the Cheshire Oaks Outlet, a share-zone which will screen live feeds of street-style shots uploaded by shoppers on Instagram using the #ArtOfDenim, an exclusive free denim tote bag which shoppers will be able to customise with their own designs, a bespoke monogramming and embroidery service for your denim pieces, and loads more cool things. To celebrate the campaign, they sent me a denim customisation kit and challenged me to create a completely unique piece for my own. Here’s how I got on!

What do you think? I love love love my studded jacket. With DIY and customisation, I always think simple works best (unless you’re a sewing whiz kid or something, which I am most definitely not). Though the McArthurGlen kit had so many fun things to use, I just went for a line of studs along the breast hem of the jacket, as I already have a few denim jackets and wanted one that had something a little extra. I’m super happy with it! I also love the Diesel jumpsuit they sent me, which is so perfect it doesn’t need a thing doing to it. Although yesterday was bizarrely warm for October, so I didn’t need anything under it when we took these snaps, it’d look great over a jumper and with black boots on cold days.

Do you customise your denim? Let me know in the comments! And don’t forget to check here for more info about how you can get involved with The Art of Denim, and click here if you fancy winning a voucher to spend at one of their stores! Have a lovely week sweeties.

P.S. Did you spy my book The Elites in a couple of these pictures? If you love reading, particularly anything sci-fi or young adult, then please do take a look at it! It’s only £5.24 for a paperback copy at the moment, or just £3.08 for the Kindle version. Your support means the world to me. I want to do this for a living, so each and every sale – or even if you just tell someone about it you think might be interested – is going towards making my dream a reality. Thank you! x

  • Cool look! I think staying with simple DIY is the best, otherwise it’ll get too messy and easier to screw it up haha (if I go overboard it always ends up bad). And congrats on the book! I hope to spot it in a bookstore in Belgium soon, I know some places where they only sell English books (always prefer them) 😀
