I'm Tomas and I'll be guest blogging over on WhatLauraLoves today while Laura is busy finishing some of her university assignments. I'll be sharing with you my take of the Bath in Fashion week. For such a historical city, it has fabulous fashion and I can't wait to tell you all about it.
Winser London takes part in Bath in Fashion
The historic city of Bath is England’s only World Heritage Site and attracts millions of visitors each year who want to explore its magnificent architecture, Spa and shopping facilities.
What many find is that although the city is steeped in history, it is not stranded in a forgotten time. Bath draws everything from its Georgian heyday to the present in a carefully balanced blend of classic and contemporary culture.
This year, the city once again showcased its unique style and reputation for creativity with Bath in Fashion week. And Winser London were proud to be a part of this fantastic show.
The event, which ran from 3rd to 10th May entered its fifth year and offered visitors access to a diverse range of design-led catwalk shows, workshops, talks and exhibitions on fashion, cosmetics, hair and interior design.
With a range of sponsors, the event gave students and established retailers alike a platform from which to promote their talent, generate debate and discussion and lend support to the event’s designated charity, Kids Company.
Its founder, the “riotously colourful woman” Camila Batmanghelidjh describes fashion as “armoury,” making the Bath in Fashion event the ideal partner to provide up and coming talent with inspiration and opportunity.
The eclectic nature of the event had broad appeal and attracted interest from those outside the design and fashion industries. Olympic Gold medallist Amy Williams even designed a bag for the charity’s auction.
Although the fields of sports and fashion may seem poles apart, Williams explained that "The Olympic Games are like a designer's fashion show. You have that one moment, and it's only a matter of seconds, to show what you've got."
One brand which capitalised on those few seconds to showcase its fashion range was Winser London.
The fledgling fashion house is the brainchild of industry expert Kim Winser OBE who has earned a reputation as a leading business figure in the fashion industry.
Having recently celebrated its first birthday, the eponymous brand which provides women with high quality, timeless wardrobe pieces has been creating a buzz in the city since introducing its range at Rossiters Bath.
Joining many other established fashion retailers, Winser London showcased its elegant, feminine range on the catwalks of Bath in Fashion week.
The collection has been created for real women with real lives who want to “feel stylish and confident, yet not overdressed” season in, season out, and their participation in Bath in Fashion is testament to the brand’s philosophy, quality and design.
Conservative, elegant wardrobe staples are the heart of the Winser London collection.
With emphasis on flattering cuts made from quality fabrics that look and feel beautiful, classic pieces which can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion include capri pants, cotton and cashmere knits, silks and trench coats as sported by Emma Watson.
To find out more about the Winser London collection, visit their online boutique or one of their pop-up stores in Rossiters Bath or selected branches of Harvey Nichols and John Lewis.
