On Tuesday I was invited along to visit the Next headquarters in Leciester to view the new S/S collection and take part in a blogger styling challenge.
We all met at an ungodly hour in Starbucks at St Pancras station, to find out we were being sent first class, in our own carriage, to the furthest North I have ever been. We arrived for a casual breakfast and a presentation of the trends and styles of the new collections. I was really impressed at the level of design that went into the pieces. I was seriously coveting the 70’s trend items, especially the white summery, sheer pieces and wood/suede platforms.
Then it was on to the styling challenge where we were each given an item of the new collection to style with anything from the mock store. I was given the white blazer; very Ann D I thought with a tie at the back for a more asymmetric look.
My favourite part of the whole day had to be meeting so many lovely people. Thank you Next and thank you to Jenny from Jam for inviting me!
