Killer wearable fashion, lovely people, giving back, prosecco or orange juice for the fainthearted. That summarises the John Lewis and Partners Autumn/Winter Fashion Event that took place at their Chelmsford store last Thursday. Just like the previous fashion event they organised, it was such an evening to remember. Usually the highlight of attending events such as the John Lewis and Partners Autumn/Winter Fashion Event is the amazing people you get to meet and this event was no different. It was lovely interacting with like-minded people such @alicia.decor @hannahgladwin, @Gracefulblog @Emma Dillard, Selina, Laura Cox and @clubforty.claire. The event involved a beauty demo, home design talk, a fashion show, Trilogy denim wardrobe style talk and a raffle draw to raise money towards Breast Cancer Care Now and Orchid.
John Lewis and Partners Autumn/Winter Fashion Event Wrap Up
Autumn is the best season for fashion. It is a transition period when you can layer or mix and match separate pieces and play with different silhouettes. The colour palette showcased was very diverse, from cool autumnal tones to bold stand out colours, both the menswear and womenswear collections had many options to offer. I loved the structured bold coloured coats, flowy dresses and fun printed tailored suits. The tailored suits, despite being menswear, I will totally rock.
John Lewis and Partners Autumn/Winter Fashion Event
I arrived early to the event which gave me the chance to walk through the store and to make myself vulnerable to buying everything off the racks like the millionaire I am
not. You cannot go to a John Lewis and partners store without finding something for you. Another love of mine is décor and boy was I inspired! You could pick up so much inspiration both from the fashion and décor around the store. There was an effective use of lighting, fixtures and little details such as the ‘Zzzz’ display on top of the bedding, which I felt was such a clever and well thought out way to decorate.
They also offer personal styling sessions which you can book online, in store or buy as a gift for a loved one. Talking about gifts, I spotted many options around the store. They also have an array of beauty stores on the ground floor of the store to choose from. I was even gifted some makeup and skincare product by the gorgeous ladies I met at the Charlotte Tilbury stand.
