This week I got to go to my very first fashion shows ever at the very first Manchester Fashion Show, that was sponsored/supported by Missguided – one of my favourite fashion retailers!
I was so excited to see the Missguided shows! To see the the beautiful items that I got to see at their Spring/Summer Collection Launch Event in February on real models! YAAAY! And the day was sooo wonderful because I got to meet Kavita, Victoria, Rosie, Lara and Sara and see Becca & Gemma again too!
Being the sponsor/supporter of the first MCRFW, Missguided had the Tuesday – the 2nd day of the MCRFW – all for themselves to showcase the numerous stunning items from their current collection in 5 differently themed shows, and showcase they did! Which is why this post will be very picture-heavy! I took over 600 pictures and managed to restrict myself to 1-2 pictures per outfit, but that’s still a shedloads of pictures! But I could NOT for the life of me cut it down anymore.
I tried doing the ‘My favourite outfits from Missguided @ MCRFW’ thing but I just couldn’t decide and also I didn’t want to keep any from you, just because I prefer something doesn’t mean you will and vice versa, so better not to hold back, right? ;-)
Missguided kicked their 5 shows off with the Prints theme. And true to what the funny twin brother hosts said (“the more clashing, the better”), Missguided went to town with dots & stripes, aztec & animal, floral and other cute patterns.
Nautical being the theme for the 2nd show, Missguided showed their light, flowing fabrics and cute playsuits, dresses and shorts ideal for your beach holiday – there’s perfect clothes for day time and night time!
By far the busiest show was the 3rd one that was themed as ‘Colour’ – and it was by far my favourite. I generally love colourful clothes (no one would guess it looking into my wardrobe, but I do love it, especially in the autumn/winter time) and love it even more when it is bright colours clashing in their fight for attention. Missguided changed into 5th gear and really brought out the brightest colours in neon pink, neon yellow, bright orange and fuchsia but didn’t forget that pastels are also massively popular at the moment!
What I REALLY, REALLY loved about the Missguided shows is the use of different shape and height models. Their models’ sizes and heights ranged a lot (from size 8 to 12 as far as I remember), which surely didn’t make it easy for their stylist, but in the end it just showed off how wearable the Missguided clothes really are! It just demonstrated that the brand is about being for everyone who wants to look very fashionable on a small budget! Well done to Sara for putting all the outfits (and the entire shows) together!!
Stay tuned for the 2nd post about the Missguided @ MCRFW which will feature the Festival/Grunge Show and the Disco/Party Show as well as some of the mind-blowingly amazing shoes the lovely models were lucky enough to wear! Prepare for more clothes envy!
