AX Paris press day AW149:30 am
You may have noticed that twitter and instagram went crazy over the weekend with #AXPressDayAW14 and partly that was due to my excitement that I was actually invited! The event was held at the black dog ballroom in Manchester, I've never seen so many bloggers all in one place before. I did recognise a few faces from instagram and even made some lovely new friends.
I spent most of the day with Amy, Nic and Heather, taking advantage of the delicious cupcakes (I forgot to take one home with me and felt genuinely upset about it on the train), veggie burgers, pizza and even sweet potato fries. Best scran I've ever had at an event, hands down. We had to stop ourselves going back for thirds..
Several rails were dotted throughout the room, all colour co-ordinated, showcasing AX Paris' AW14 collection. I have to admit, I've never shopped with AX Paris before, but it's safe to say I'm going to start soon. I fell in love with quite a few pieces, including this faux fur coat, a black faux fur gilet I tweeted and a few sparkly crop tops, but me and Amy became literally obsessed with this burgundy faux leather mini. It is perfect for AW and would slot into my wardrobe quite nicely, don't you think?
I was seriously impressed with what AX Paris had to offer, they're often known for their partywear but have a fair few pieces that will suit those of us who don't tend to venture into eveningwear that often. Of course the usual lace, sequins and bodycon dresses were on offer, but there were a fair share of printed trousers, silky shirts, A-line minis and metallic co-ords which could easily be dressed down with a pair of tights and ankle boots.
We were kept busy for hours with henna tattoos, a photobooth and even a printer for our instagram snaps! I wish I had one of these in my house, how cute would it be?! Thank you so much to AX Paris for having me (and for my generous goody bag!) and thanks to everybody who said hello, I had a lovely time and I'm sure I'll have an even better time shopping the collection!
