FCUK Summer Collection Event


This is a bit of a different post for me today, I tend to stick to beauty based reviews on my little blog but Thursday evening I attended the French Connection Summer Showcase at West Quay in Southampton and couldn't resist taking a few photos to show you guys. I took along my sister. The event started around 5pm and we were all greeted into store by Southampton's Manager, Lindsey with a complimentary glass of bubbly and some nibbles provided by Millie's Cookies and Krispy Kreme.










This event was a first for FCUK Southampton and hopefully the beginning of many. On the night we got to have a good look around in awe of the beautiful clothing while the girls were getting ready to put on the fashion show. We were also all given a fab goody bag with lots of little bits in, my favourite being the Rose Lip Salve.

Two models wore four outfits each to walk the 'catwalk' around the store, I'll put all the details for the outfits worn by the models so they're easy to search online. Throughout the night there was also a chance to win a £500 shopping spree if you tweeted or instagrammed the fashion show, clothes or the staff which I unbelievably won! 

A few of the photos are a bit out of focus as I was juggling my bag, camera and a drink but each outfit showcased is above along with the details and price. I went and picked up my gift card yesterday, was a given a bottle of champagne and had to pose for a little photo. I am going to do a haul post of what I treat myself to soon. 

Lyndsey and the team at French Connection Southampton were fantastic hosts for the evening, full of fab information about the collection and of course on hand to keep us all topped up with bubbly. Fingers crossed this is something that happens again with their Autumn collection!
