Flannels Spinningfields and guests celebrated in style as the store hosted an exclusive Grazia and Raoul Spring/Summer 12 presentation on Thursday 22nd March 2012 to launch the brand at the Manchester flagship store on The Avenue, Manchester’s luxury retail quarter.
The evening was hosted by special guest Charlie Miller, Grazia’s Executive Fashion and Beauty Director and Joy Yaffe, International Brand Consultant representing Raoul.
The models, beautifully styled by the Nicky Clark team from the Manchester salon presented 17 key looks from the Raoul Spring / Summer 12 collection, showcasing this season’s ‘The Fast Look’. From graphic colour block dresses to signature sharp shirts and simple seductive fabrics combining silk and the leather, the collection exuded clean and classic 1960’s inspired sophistication.
The summer cool shades of white, vanilla, citron blended with the scorching summer hues of cobalt blue, neon-hot pink and emerald green provided the perfect colour spectrum for the summer wardrobe.
The guests enjoyed a champagne reception pre-show and sipped beautiful Tennessee Rose and Apple Jazz cocktails courtesy of Southern Eleven, an authentic new-style American restaurant and specialist cocktail bar situated in Spinningfields.
To end the evening, guests were treated to goody bags with treats including copies of Grazia, Raoul SS/12 Look books, Viva Las Vegas and Good Girl rose encrusted cupcakes from Hey Little Cupcake!, a free make over at SpaceNK, hair treats from Nicky Clarke, exclusive discount for Southern Eleven and more!
