Review: West Coast Cooler Belfast FASHIONWEEK – SS18 Media Launch

Hi Everyone

As you know as part of my passion for fashion I love attending fashion events so when I was kindly invited by the lovely Cathy Martin CMPR, the organiser of Belfast Fashion Week, to the Spring / Summer (SS18) West Coast Cooler Belfast FASHIONWEEK (WCCFW) media launch last week I was delighted (#WCCFW is on from 22- 25 March 2018).   Hard to believe it is the 25th Season of Belfast Fashion Week, what a fantastic achievement for Cathy and all her team – a Huge Congratulations to them all.

This was my first time at a media launch for Belfast Fashion Week so as well as being excited about seeing trends / colours for SS18 I was looking forward to seeing everyone.   The launch was held last Thursday 25th January 2018 in the The Ormeau Baths building, Belfast – lovely location and my first time there.


We were kindly offered West Coast Cooler drinks as soon as we arrived, even though I do not drink myself, really appreciate how West Coast Cooler NI (Sponsor of Belfast FASHIONWEEK) always look after everyone so well at these events – there were little snacks placed on each ‘table’ for everyone to enjoy as well.  Then after some socialising, catching up with some friends the fashion show began.


Below are just a few photos showing the trends, fashion, colours for SS18 (from a range of Boutiques / High Street stores) modelled beautifully by all the stunning models – fashion photos are courtesy of Colette O’Neill as my phone decided to give up – need an upgrade.











Lilac, pink, green, textures, stripes, pencil skirts are a few of the trends for SS18.  My favourite colours for the forthcoming season will be green, pink, lilac and Black as always (I know –  but for me Black always is in fashion and is my go to colour, always has been).   Although I love pink on everyone else I have only really started to wear it over the last few years and now really like it as well.   I love pencil skirts anyway so was delighted to see they are on trend for the season ahead as well.


A MASSIVE thank you to everyone for a fantastic day, especially Cathy for invite, all her team, West Coast Cooler NI, The Ormeau Baths staff, and all the companies who v kindly provided us with goodies at the end as well (see below) – which was / is greatly appreciated.


Now cannot wait for the 25th Season of Belfast FASHIONWEEK to start – it is on from Thursday 22nd March – Sunday 25th March 2018 with the main runway shows taking place in the stunning St. Anne’s Cathedral.

As well as the two fashion shows (high street and designer) there are a number of other events – see below and for more details, to purchase tickets – lovely treat for yourself or as a gift.

I hope to get going to at least both fashion shows and the Sunday Style Event – great event & a fantastic cause.

Thank you for reading – hope you have a fantastic week.  Intend to have more posts up tomorrow and during/end of the week.

Take care.

Best Wishes Liz x
