We headed down to an exclusive location in central London to take our place on the FROW of Fearne Cotton’s latest catwalk, which showcased her brand new, Spring/summer 2015 collection for Very.co.uk. The fizz was being poured on arrival as we mingled with the likes of Made In Chelsea stars Lucy Watson, Stephanie Pratt and Cheska Hull, as well as Lilah Parsons, Tanya Burr and Fearne’s husband Jesse Wood. We even caught up with the one and only Gok Wan!
But before it all kicked off, we managed to grab Fearne backstage to talk sequins, faux fur and being a mum. The Radio 1 presenter also revealed her favourite designers (both British, obv), as well as the best fashion advice she’s ever received. We came away with a whole lot of inspo for our own winter wardrobes, including a rekindled passion for everything leopard print!
The show itself was a circus-themed spectacular, with fire jugglers and hula-hoop experts entertaining the crowd, weaving between the models on the catwalk. As for the new collection, we’re looking forward to folk-print shift dresses, neon jumpers, tailored trousers, floral co-ords and a show-stopping monochrome jumpsuit. Fearne emerged at the end of the show to be showered in flowers, before making a speech thanking us all for being there- she even gave a shout out to her step daughter, who had arrived dressed as a clown. Cute!
You might have to wait until 13th January next year (we know) to actually shop Fearne’s new wares, but for now you can watch our exclusive interview, and get a sneak peek of the collection while you’re at it. The good news is that means we’ve got ample time to compile our shopping lists!
So take 10 mins to watch the vid, and then start making your own wishlist. Or if you simply can’t wait, you can shop Fearne’s AW14 collection on Very right now. Bagsy that amazing fringed sweater!
