Last week, I was invited to the launch of Salisbury Fashion Week. Now, it’s not Paris, Milan or New York but it’s very exciting for local businesses and showcases some great designers (also, I don’t get out that much so it was nice to get dressed up and head out for the evening!). I met some great people including the very talented Lydia Stamps who has very, very kindly let me use these fantastic backstage shots of the show.
Apart from the fantastic performances and catwalk shows from local designers, the highlight of the evening was being introduced to the very talented fashion historian and writer, Dr Ben Wild. He has recently written a fascinating piece on Women’s Style Through Time on his blog Linley Wild - a great read.

Local business from hairdressers and boutiques to cake shops and florists have all got together to showcase their talents. There is always a buzz in the air around fashion week with so many events taking place across the city from millinery workshops, talks on the history of fashion and catwalk shows. It’s great for the local economy.
Do you have a local fashion week where you live?
