Well Newcastle Fashion Week is finally over, and what a fantastically hectic week it was in the House of Love Niche!! We have had an amazing time and met so many lovely people!
We kicked off Newcastle Fashion Week 2013 in style, by attending the official launch party at Mercedes Benz garage for the Cruise Clothing catwalk.
We were greeted with a glass of champagne on arrival and got the chance to look around the ‘bootiques’ and at the dreamy cars, including the official Newcastle Fashion Week Mercedes, before the show started. We were lucky enough to get front row seats for the catwalk, Cruise put on an amazing show, we fell in love with sooo many pieces that we just NEED to have! If you didn’t get to attend the launch or haven’t yet seen the pictures, these are the official photographs.
During the evening at Mercedes we got to sample some of the incredible cocktail creations by Livello bar, including our favourite the Marshmallow Martini (out of this world!) This gave us a taster of what was to come, as we then headed on to Livello’s for the after party in the exclusive members only area upstairs, the perfect end to an amazing launch!
Monday 13th May was the big event of the week for us, as it was the Fringe event for our much awaited launch for the new cruise/resort wear collection!! The entire day was such a whirlwind and flew by, with model fittings, goody bag packing, sorting and styling the looks, timing the walk…the list is endless, safe to say we had a crazy 13 hours!
When the clock struck 7 the doors were officially open at the Hood St Club and the guests started to pour in, we were in to the final hour countdown so we were all frantically trying to organise the last few details before showtime!
8’o clock and the models were lined up all looking amazing in their first looks and ready to go. The show lasted for 25 minutes and was split into 4 looks; First were looks from Love Niche- Monochrome, Second were Niche by Nisha Vedhara-Wedding, third and fourth were both the amazing kaftans by Niche by Nisha Vedhara.
Here are a few of our favourite looks from the night, and the link for the official photographs firstly by Lee Scullion and also Alex Alevroyiannis.
