BERLIN WITH MARC CAIN
A couple of weeks ago I jetted off to Berlin for a whirlwind two-day trip with Marc Cain – Germany’s biggest fashion brand – to attend their SS15 show at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. It was my first time in Germany – though I didn’t really get to see that much of it! Our hectic schedule was packed with fun events, and it was only really when I was on the plane back that I had a moment to stop and breathe, and think over all the exciting things that I’d experienced. Unfortunately Callum couldn’t come on the trip with me, but the gorgeous Maddie from Daria Daria was on hand as our photographer. Take a look to see what we got up to on the day of the show …
Whew, those were a lot of photos! But Maddie’s snaps were so gorgeous I couldn’t help but share so many. It was seriously so much fun to meet the other ten bloggers out in Berlin working with Marc Cain, especially Clemence and Karolina, who I spent pretty much the whole time laughing with (as you can see in the photos. I think I need to work on my pout!). We started the day with a makeover by Jacks Beauty Department – who have convinced me orange lipstick is definitely the way forward – and taking an exclusive look at Marc Cain’s AW14 styles in their beautiful showroom. Then it was off for lunch at a super cool rooftop location before heading to Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week!
As soon as we arrived, we ran backstage for a quick peek at the models getting ready before heading inside for the show. It was stunning, and I loved how the circus theme was played up with performers twirling ribbons and doing acrobatics down the runway. Every piece in the collection was beautiful, though I particularly loved the bright, bold floral prints and how floaty dresses and skirts were paired with lace sneakers – a new twist on my favourite sports luxe trend. One of the best things about Marc Cain is how age-defying their pieces are. They are all about classic cuts and shapes, and make clothes that every age group can wear and style in their own personal way. I’ll be getting a chance to style a few of the pieces from the AW14 collection over the next few months, so be prepared for your wishlist to get seriously out of control!
A big thank you to Marc Cain and the PR teams Blogger Bazaar and Task for inviting me out to beautiful Berlin, and Maddie for taking these gorgeous photos (I think they’ve made Callum a little jealous ;)). I’ve also got a fun little video of the day to share with you all, where you can see my killer dance moves. Not something you’re going to want to miss, hey? Watch it here 🙂 x
