I was lucky enough to be invited to blog at the Hull Fashion Week Finale on Saturday and the slot I was given to cover was the ‘Leaders in Hull’s fashion legacy’ which was the first catwalk of the day. The show kicked off with a fabulous Lindy Hop by students from Hull College and then models showed off clothes of Hulls finest and longest-established retailers including Beasley’s, Hugh Rice and Leonard Silver. I was so happy to be given this slot as this was probably my favourite catwalk as it included a lot of vintage and retro pieces. Many of the outfits would be perfect to wear in summer or at a festival, especially the 1960’s playsuits you’ll see below. I also loved the formal menswear section of the catwalk and I think the pieces like the grey suit and the pin-stripe jacket could really stand out at a formal occasion this summer. The girls’ hair and makeup were great: plenty of victory rolls and red lipstick which are so fun to have in the summer as well as all year round!

|Dancing Models: I particularly loved the way this group of models were dressed- especially that mint green dress!|
|The fisherman’s sweaters looked so cosy and I think these would look amazing on both men and women|
|I think these outfits were my favourite outfits of the day – Both have a 60’s feel and would be amazing in summer|
|Particularly this orange playsuit which reminds me of the outfits at the Sixties Exhibition at York Castle Museum|
