Bath in Fashion 2014

I recently hopped the train over to Bath to attend a Bath in Fashion blogger event. The day started off at the Royal Crescent Hotel & Spa, which is stunning, the gardens were lovely and I could have stayed there all day sipping tea and eating biscuits! We were given a presentation of the upcoming events at Bath in Fashion, which will include talks by Meadham Kirchhoff and Topshop MD Mary Homer along with a whole host of Catwalk shows, Fashion Fairs, Workshops and films including Sabrina starring Audrey Hepburn! You can check out the full calendar of events on the Bath in Fashion website.

After the presentation we were sent off on a scavenger hunt, I was in a team with Tara, SJ and Polly and as each of us was a little late to the presentation (darn you Sunday trains!) we called ourselves team Last But Not Least! We were given a list of trends and a list of friendly shops that were willing to accommodate us crazy bloggers as we rushed round looking for the trends to mark off our lists. We posted pictures of each trend we found to Instagram and were given extra points if we posted pics of ourselves wearing the trend! So much fun! Here's a little selection of my Instagram shots!

We dashed over to the Fashion Museum, which was our finish line, and had a little rest while we waited for all the teams to get back. After we'd had a breather we looked around the exhibits at the museum whilst the scores were counted. The special exhibit for 2014 is Georgians: dress for polite society.

How beautiful is this Georgian inspired Vivienne Westwood evening gown; someone take me to a ball?

We also got the chance to check out the 2013 Dress of the Year, which had only just been installed and is a Christopher Kane dress chosen by Susie Lau of Style Bubble.

After we'd had a good look around the museum exhibits we headed back upstairs for a glass of Champagne and found out which team had won the scavenger hunt! Sadly all our dashing did not pay off and we didn't win but we did come second, huzzah! Everyone got a lovely goody bag full of treats and was particularly excited to find out that Anthropologie would be opening a store in Bath on 30th May and we were given lovely notebooks and pencils as part of the goody bag. Also included were treats from BiOrganics, Weleda and Liz Cox. Bath in Fashion runs from 3rd to 10th May so definitely check it out if you're in or around Bath! Big thanks to the Bath in Fashion team; I had a great time at the event and I slept well that night after our mini marathon around Bath's shops!
