November Favourites 2015

Brrrrr, yup, it’s December already! And that means it’s time for another monthly favourites video.

Time for the next post in my Autumn / Winter Colour Edit series!

This year’s Style Birmingham Live Host – Mark Wright

There was something seriously missing from last year’s fashion line up in Birmingham – the ever fabulous Style Birmingham Live event took a break for a year, leaving a gaping hole in my September!

Brilliant news, though, it’s back, and better than ever, and I went along to the preview event last week to find out all about it!

Style Birmingham Live 2015 will take place on Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th September (back to a full weekend lineup – woohoo!). The main event – as ever – will be a stunning catwalk show taking place at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery’s impressive Gas Hall, which will be transformed into The Fashion Theatre for the weekend, showcasing Autumn/Winter collections from Birmingham’s retailers and shopping centres.
