A/W16 VIP Blogger Event With Intu Victoria Centre, Nottingham.



Last week I was invited along to an exciting, behind the scenes, VIP Blogger Event with Intu Victoria Centre. The event was all about the new A/W Launches that were happening in the centre, and we were going to be treated to a sneaky preview before they hit stores.

I have been fortunate enough to attend all of Intu Victoria Centre's Blogger events along side the lovely Sherry from Sherry Scribbles, and every time they get bigger and better, so I was extremely excited to see what they had in store for us this season.



 As I approached the Blogger Box I could see that it had been beautifully decorated with an array of golden, orange leaves, and mannequins sporting the latest styles. I gave my name and headed straight over to the cocktail station!
 

 
We were spoilt with a selection of delicious, mouth watering, canapés from Thaikhun, that perfectly accompanied their rainbow coloured cocktails.
 
 
Drink in hand I headed over to the Super+SuperHQ Flower Crown making station. The table was full of autumnal coloured flowers, pearls and gold glittery accessories. I decided to go all out and make a full crown of stunning, sumptuous, purple flowers, with pearls delicately dotted in between them. If you want to see how it turned out, check out my Instagram. I loved the finished look!
 
 




With my new headpiece in place I wandered over to the Boots Beauty stations. There were beauty experts from; Clarins, Benefit, Estee Lauder, Liz Earle & Lancôme there to talk to us about their brand. It was really interesting to hear the stories behind the collections, and also find out what new launches they had in store.

Estee Lauder are launching a breath taking new scent in October, by the name of  Modern Muse Nuit, which is autumn captured in a bottle! The scent is described as 'A contrast of hypnotic florals and addictive woods, seductive as the night', completely sold by the description alone!

 Another intriguing fact, did you know that Liz Earle's packaging is that stunning blue shade because it was inspired by the sea view from her first ever store?! It was amazing to see how much thought goes into every aspect of these brands.





 
I have booked myself in for a few consultations, and beauty treatments with a selection of the brands, and cannot wait to try out some more of their products.
 
We were able to chat and network with some of the other bloggers before the John Lewis Catwalk Show began.
 
This A/W John Lewis are launching a new brand that's exclusive to themselves, by the name of Modern Rarity. We were treated to a preview of what the collection has to offer.
 

 


 




 Modern Rarity is a brand that takes a modern twist on classic, timeless pieces. The colour palette consists of soft, muted neutrals such as, blush pinks and creamy camel tones. The collection is designed around premium quality, luxury fabrics and precision tailoring. The aim is that you can wear the pieces season upon season.
 
  It took two years to create Modern Rarity, with every design decision having immense thought put into it. You can see the effort being exuded by the clothing as the fit and textures are sensational.
 
I fell in love with the long camel Notch Collared Coat and the Gorgeous Cashmere Funnel Neck Jumper. Two classic pieces that I would love to add to my A/W16 wardrobe.
 
 Being a luxury, premium quality, brand means that these pieces are investment wardrobe staples. The collection ranges in price from £60 onwards. However, the price is indicative of the high end quality.
 
Overall, Modern Rarity is a classic, fresh take on timeless, staple, wardrobe essentials. A luxurious, perfectly put together, premium brand featuring; precision tailoring, flawless exclusive design and limited edition collaborations. What more could you want from a brand.
 
You can shop the collection online here, or better yet, head over to John Lewis in Intu Victoria Centre to experience the opulent collection in the flesh.
 
As the event drew to an end we were gifted a gorgeous goody bag by Sostrene Grene, a cute homeware store, full of home décor goodies and Boxed water! Which is very LFW.
 
 
A Huge thank you to Intu Victoria Centre and Cartwright Communications for letting me be part of the Intu Victoria Centre VIB Night, and also for all the hard work and effort that's put into every one of their events.
 
 I have Vlogged the event too, so keep your eyes peeled on my YouTube Channel for that Vlog!
