Yesterday evening after work, I was lucky enough to attend the Max Mara Autumn Winter fashion show at Fenwick in Newcastle. Yesterday was the perfect day for the fashion show as it truly felt like the first day of Autumn - the air was cold and walking up to Grey's Monument all I could think about was wool coats, mittens and hot chocolates!
Fenwick is a bit of an institution in itself in the North East and for myself especially... I was always taken as a treat when I was younger either to see the famous Christmas Windows or for a special occasion to the food hall for cake or a macaroon. Fenwick's little green bags remind of these days and are just as symbolic as 'the little brown bag' in my eyes.
The show featured lots of different textures and everything from traditional A/W darks and knits to bright coloured elegant wool coats. I had my eye on this red one but I'm unsure the colour would suit my skin tone! It was a great event and I'd like to thank Anna and her team at Fenwick for inviting me along.
