So this week I got to take a work trip down to London to the Matalan Xmas collection press event. I don’t really get the chance to go down to the capital that often so I really was a tourist armed with my camera! It was great to see how retail events work, meet and chat to some of my favourite bloggers and have a sneaky peek at the clothes due into stores. Whilst I was in town I managed to get to the Argos, Missguided, Warehouse and River Island events. They were all so different but the clothing was gorgeous!
Here are a couple of pics from the day and the Matalan and Argos events-
The Matalan was a fantastic day, yes I’m biased I know, and it was great to see key pieces across all departments. I will post a more detailed entry over the next week but for now, here are a couple of pics. To see more footage from the event check out the Matalan blog 🙂
The Argos event was one that surprised me the most in terms of just how much they had to showcase. I saw the event mentioned on my twitter feed by a couple of bloggers and so I checked out the hashtag and it turned out it was in the area. Emma Bunton was at the event presenting her latest collection of children’s clothes. Unfortunately we just missed her but Lee Stafford was there with his haircare collection, so that was a nice celebrity spot!
I will blog about the Missguided and River Island events over the next week or so, but if you were at any of the events, or one of the many more that took place during the Christmas in July week please let me know or leave your blog look- I would love to have a nosey 🙂
