Last week was a busy one for the blog... as well as organising future events with both the guys at Liverpool One and Cavern Walks (for which we are tres excited and will fill you in with the deet's soon!)we were also lucky enough to find ourselves at the Met Quarter on Wednesday night for the opening of Miss Francesca Couture' flagship store and catwalk presentation.
400 fashionistas had gathered at Metquarter to watch the 40 minute show featuring 12 local models showcasing 36 looks from Francescas new Autumn Winter collection.
Francesca, 28 from West Derby who graduated from Liverpool John Moores University in 2008 with a BA Hons in Fashion Design, said “It’s a dream come true for me to open in Metquarter. I've had a lot of input into the look and feel of the store, which I think is the perfect fit for my brand. I can't wait start dressing Liverpool girls for the upcoming Christmas party season.”
Francesca continued "To launch my flagship store with a catwalk show on this scale was more than I could have hoped for. The turnout was fantastic and everyone was so positive about the new collection, I'm really excited about the future."
Attendees looked glam as usual and there was some fabulous winter outfit inspiration in the audience as well as the catwalk.
The collection was fun and glittering for Autumn / Winter 2013 and promises to help Liverpool's young vixens stand out on the dancefloor this festive season. Francesca certainly knows her customer and did not disappoint her with this collection. There was sequins, tulle tartan and animal print a plenty and Francescas young and vibrant clientele want just that.
The event was a great success, Metquarter centre manager Jennina O'Neill said “Francesca’s label has gone from strength to strength in the last few years and we’re delighted she’s decided to open her flagship store at Metquarter, we're certain it will be a very popular addition to the centre and perfectly compliments the likes of Kurt Geiger, MAC, Illamasqua and Mococo.”
The launch event was supported with a pop up bar from Playground, hair styling from Jane Fullerton and makeup from Illamasqua.
