Last Saturday was my second day attending Belfast Fashion Week. It was a beautiful Fashion Tea at The Culloden Estate and Spa. The setting was exquisite and was further enhanced by the amazing spring sunshine which made its first appearance that weekend.
The red carpet led the way to the drawing room of the hotel where we were greeted by West Coast Cooler cocktails and the flashing of cameras from some of Northern Irelands finest photographers.
We were then shown to our tables where we were served a delicious afternoon tea, comprising of amazing aperitifs, scrumptious sandwiches and delightful desserts.
As we enjoyed the beautiful food, we were treated to an exhilarating fashion show by Cruise Fashion.
I fell in love with almost every outfit on display, with figure hugging dresses from Victoria Beckham, evening wear by Roland Mouret, Luxurious handbags from Givency and Alexander McQueen and beautiful footwear from Jimmy Choo and Gucci, to name but a few.
The intimate surroundings of this event allowed the spectators to see each outfit up close and personal and speaking for myself and almost every woman in the room, make a mental shopping list to hit Cruise with in the coming days.
We finished the afternoon with a refreshing walk around the gardens of the beautiful Culloden Estate and enjoyed breathtaking views over the water from the “Romeo and Juliet” style balcony.
