On Tuesday this week, we donned our gladrags and headed to the Oxo Tower on the South Bank to give some of our favourite bloggers a sneak peek at the F&F Spring Summer 2012 collection. The night was a roaring success – everyone was thrilled to see the gorgeous new pieces that will be available early next year, and we all got into the party vibe with cupcakes, canapés, champagne, beautiful nail art courtesy of WAH nails, and posing that even Madonna would be proud of in the photobooth!
The new collection looked fabulous, with stunning prints, striking colours and statement pieces that we can’t wait to get our hands on! We gave each of our guests a heart shaped tag to hang on their favourite item in the collection – it was a tough choice, but it was great to see the variety of items being picked.
The lovely Tor from Fab Frocks chose a fabulous red number, whilst Lizzy from Scientist Chic went for a cream lace dress. Sarah from EssBeeVee filled hers in sporting a funky polka dot manicure and Clara from Clazzerati chose a stripey tube skirt. We’ll be sharing more favourite blogger pieces over the next few weeks, so stay tuned to see the hottest items from the collection!
Of course, all this browsing was very exhausting, so we rewarded our hard-working bloggers with some very yummy cupcakes, courtesy of Brown Sugar Cupcakes – yum! The wonderful ladies from WAH nails were also on hand to pamper our guests with some glam manicures.
Sherin from Hi Fashion showed off her gorgeous coral and polka dot manicure on Twitter, and Florrie from Intrinsically Florrie rocked her pink glitter and rose manicure. Huge thanks to the WAH nails team for taking part and doing such a fabulous job!
The highlight of the night had to be the photobooth, courtesy of Say Fromage!, which provided an endless source of amusement for us all! There were some fabulous mugshots featuring wigs, Santa hats and fake flamingos – check out the gallery to see them all. Our favourites have to be this fabulous one of Amy from Wolf Whistle being a little star, Clare from Rainbows and Fairydust rocking the pink hair and Laura from That’s So Yesterday showing us her maraccas!
Thank you so much to everybody who came – we couldn’t have done it without you! And if you too want a sneak peak at the collection before it hits stores and our website early next year, keep an eye out for the SS12 lookbook, which we’ll be posting here very soon.
