I was invited to attend the press showcase for the upcoming clothing line by The Couture Club. Prior to the event I met with Managing Director Ross Worswick, famous from MTV's Ex on the Beach, who kitted me out with some seriously stylish ripped skinny jeans, a black tee cut nicely to fit my physique, and a red leather jacket Michael Jackson would be proud of.
The minute I stepped in front of the mirror I felt special. This was not just another "celebrity" endorsed clothing line. Yeah, pretty much every reality TV star under the sun was clamouring to be adorned, but where hype often fails this brand proved to have style and substance.
The event was well attended by a number of social media influencers, reality TV stars, local press and magazines, and also received some national coverage whilst I was gifted with their latest Pièce De Résistance, a light tan suede jacket. This fashion forward number was soft to touch and just as exciting in real life as it was in their recent online promo.
Other items I was personally impressed by included their tracksuits. I love the whole modern resurgence of the tracksuit and how it has morphed into a bold style statement of recreation and loungewear. The Parlour, situated in Tattu Manchester proved to be the ideal setting for such an event and guests were treated to a series of cocktails and canapés throughout the evening. I enjoyed the company of Javi Shephard, Adam Jukes, Sam Giffen, Charlotte Dawson, Ross Worswick, Drew Jones, Terry Walsh, Scott Thomas, Kady Mcdermott, Emma-Jane Woodham, A-Magazine and Manchester Fashion Industry to name but a few.
