7 – Boost Your Self. The Curve Fashion Festival is about more than just clothes. This year’s event has a dedicated How to Stage: featuring bloggers, celeb stylists and speakers such as Danielle Vanier and Hayley Stewart who will be encouraging you to ‘throw out the rule book’ because ‘You Can Wear That‘ and frankly that’s exactly the kind of positive, upbeat styling advice we love!
8 – The C-Bomb. We’re gonna drop the C-bomb because even though you don’t want to admit it, Christmas is just around the corner! Fashionistas will be some of the first around the country to pick up some sparkly inspiration with a ‘first-look’ at winter collections from High Street brands such as River Island, M&S and Simply Be. When we say Christmas, you say PARTY!
9 – VIP. We love a bit of glamour and there’s no way we’re missing out on VIP tickets for the best seats in the house at the catwalk shows, brilliant freebies (inc Fake Bake) and of course access to the VIP lounge for bubbles having shopped, been pampered and lusted over all the new season collections.
10 – Fashioinistas Unite. The Curve Fashion Festival prides itself on creating a positive, inclusive event that inspires and encourages women of all shapes and sizes to come together to celebrate in one big, happy community. Even if you’re heading to the festival on your own, you’ll definitely leave with a bunch of new friends.
