Norwich Fashion Week Preview

This afternoon I was lucky enough to be at Norwich Fashion Week’s preview show, getting an early glimpse of the looks for next season.

Norwich has a vibrant and eclectic fashion scene with the annual show gaining greater recognition every year. The city is blessed with a fusion of characterful independent retail, alongside a strong vintage scene, high street chains and large department stores. It’s a UK top ten shopping destination with a true love of fashion at its heart.

Collections from city retailers were showcased with some strong, consistent themes. Ladies, this summer you need to take your sunglasses big and your day bags even bigger. Men, start growing your beards and throwing away your socks.

Here’s a look at what you can expect
