Drake Fashion Live Preview Night

On Thursday evening I - along with two of my favourite fellow bloggers Ellie and Rhian - was kindly invited by the people at Drake Circus Plymouth to attend a preview night for their upcoming fashion show, which is taking place this weekend! Hosted in the Regus Business Lounge - it's definitely as fancy as it sounds - we were greeted by an array of food, drink, fashion and beauty products provided by stores throughout Drake Circus, all of which we got to learn more about and try out.

Yo! Sushi presented the most 'instagrammable' sushi platter I'd ever seen, with a variety of their most loved dishes for us to try. After devouring the sushi we moved on to the gorgeous Champagne Cocktail chocolates from Hotel Chocolat which were almost too pretty to eat!
As the evening kicked off, a selection of brands from within Drake Circus talked to us about their new launches and we were given the opportunity to learn more about the amazing brands that we have down here in Plymouth. I absolutely loved hearing about Cath Kidston's new launches and the beautiful story that inspired the designs.
Definitely one of the most exciting parts of the night was when we were given the opportunity to try the new Nutella Krispy Kreme doughnuts - before anyone else in the UK! These are without a doubt going to become a regular purchase of mine following their launch yesterday!
But of course, the main purpose of the night was to learn more about the Drake Fashion Live event which is taking place today, so make sure you head over to Drake Circus to experience this unique fashion show and the chance to win an outift!
We were whisked away to the main shopping centre where we were able to watch the first dress rehearsal of the show. This is a really unique show as the models parade through the entire shopping centre, stopping at set locations - including outside the shop they are wearing - for shoppers to learn more about each item of clothing and the brand.
Along with the fashion show, Mosaic Model Management are going to be scouting for new talent within the mall this Monday (30th May), there are some awesome prizes up for grabs including the chance to be signed with Mosaic, so make sure you head down to Drake Circus if that's something that interests you!
Drake Fashion Live is definitely the most innovative show I've seen in Plymout for a while, and it's really great to see how many amazing brands and events we have down here, you really don't want to miss out on this one!
A huge thankyou to the lovely people at Drake Circus for organising this event, and inviting me along for the preview. Also, to all the wonderful brands within the mall for providing us with the most insane goody bag I've ever seen. I'm so grateful to be able to attend events like these!
