When I worked in fashion retail, I was always on top of new season styles. However, since leaving a few years ago, my knowledge on trends and such has gone out the window. It is no joke when I say I have a work wardrobe, gym wardrobe and a few other items in between. Absolutely shocking.

When an email popped through from Bon Accord Shopping Centre about an evening of Summer Style, I jumped at the chance. Who better to increase my knowledge on Summer trends than a Shopping Centre with some of the best-loved High Street brands?

The event itself allowed the brands to showcase some of the latest trends and new products. While some had pop-up stands, others treated us to a fashion show. In addition, Coach also presented us with a short presentation about their new season handbags and I may or may not have fallen in love with a couple...

Beauty-wise, we were treated to displays from Clarins, Liz Earle and No.7 to name a few. It was interesting seeing some of the new launches as I am very rarely in town so I'm not always aware of new releases (which is probably a good thing for my bank account).

Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed myself at the event. I felt that I came away much more knowledgeable about trends and new launches as well as a wishlist longer than my arm. Thank you Bon Accord for arranging a fabulous event!

Bon Accord are holding a Summer Style event on Saturday 28th May. Head down for catwalk shows, beauty advice and much, much more1
