LIFE: Manchester Fashion Industry Blue Hues Event

A few weeks ago, the lovely guys at Manchester Fashion Industry invited me along to their SS15 Blue Hues Event.  The idea behind MFI is to bring together the thriving fashion, beauty and retail community in this amazing city of mine through various fashion based  events and networking opportunities.  I've been to a few of their events before which are always great fun, the best being the launch of David Beckham Haig Club Whisky at Selfridges!

The theme of this event was blue, and this was grabbed by both hands by everyone who attended.  I wore a petrol blue scuba dress by ASOS, which was a nightmare to find as I just do not suit blue!!  I took along one of my best friends Kate, who is by standard plus one at all fashion events and set off on a gorgeous Mancunian sunny evening to the pre party at Restaurant Bar and Grill.  

We were greeted by a blue carpet, and goody bags and cupcakes, and made our way to the RBG terrace, which is one of my favourite venues in the city.  We arrived quite late due to Kate being involved in a world record breaking attempt during the day, and it was already heaving.

The fashion show of the night showcased Maniere De Voir  and Esperar Boutique, but unfortunately, due to the number of people who were there, and the fact that the catwalk was just a makeshift aisle through the terrace, we couldn't see anything.  I actually ended up watching half of it through another bloggers camera viewfinder as she held her camera in the air!

We had a great night at the event, and at the party at Milton Club after, but it was a shame that the fashion show, which should be the focal point of any fashion event, ended up not being seen by a huge amount of people.  As great as RBG Terrace is as a venue, I just don't think it worked for this event.  As MFI events get more popular, there will only be more people, so there should really be an organised catwalk.  I know the fashion industry in Manchester would want to see that.

Apologies for the quality of these photos, they're all from my iPhone as I forgot my camera ...... bad blogger!
