Cosmopolitan #fashfest

On Thursday evening we went up to London to attend the Cosmopolitan Fashion Festival at the Battersea Evolution Center which was lots of fun...
We were given our first drink and went through in to the reception hall where there were complimentary treatments available including manicures by Barry M, hair styling from Fudge and make overs from Urban Decay. Unfortunately I took too long sticking my eyelashes on and we missed all that...good one Harriet, high five to me!

We then went though to the main hall and took our seats for the fashion show hosted by Laura Whitmore!

Here are all the models showing off a checked collection.
All the clothes featured are from high street stores and are current collection. The stores shown included Topshop, Miss Selfridge, River Island, ASOS, Primark and Boohoo.
The were shown in trend collections rather than shop collections so you had to really pay attention as the models came out!

A little of the animal prints collection.
Other trend collections shown were...
Dark Autumn Florals

Good bye models...
I thought, as it was a high street show the models would be a bit more 'normal women' types, however they were all very tall and skinny and beautiful!

Once the fashion show was done we went back out and tucked in to some booze!

I'm not normally that into Baileys, but this tiny cocktail was delicious! The Princess and The Pirate is Baileys mixed with Captain Morgan rum with a little squirt of cream on the top...and I had 4!
We, of course, had cosmopolitans too!
Oh and maybe some wine and Baileys at the same time...oh dear!
Everyone was also given a goody bag which you can see here in Emmas hand as she drunkenly walks in to our hotel wall, but I'll go in to the contents of that in another post as I'm rambling through pictures...!
All in all it was a really fun night and I really hope they do it again next year
