Intu Metrocentre: Intu Fashion '18

Hello lovelies!

Hope you're all well?

On Wednesday evening, I was kindly invited along to the Metrocentre, Gateshead for an evening of fabulous fashion, fun treats and furry friends!  Yes, Thursday saw the start of Intu Metrocentre's Fashion weekend, and the good news is, there are plenty more shows to see.  If you're looking forward to your summer holiday but desperate for a dose of style inspiration, then it's the place to be for all of your summer fashion needs!

Situated in Metrocentre's Town Square, right beside House of Fraser, you can't miss the wonderful and summery pop-up runway (look out for the amazing pink telephone box and flowery archway!).  

On arrival, we were given an extra special treat of being able to meet some gorgeous furry friends from Newcastle Cat and Dog Shelter, who'll also be popping by across the weekend.  If fashion isn't your thing but you can't resist a puppy cuddle, you might want to hang around just to say hi to Winston and Churchill, and my personal favourite, Sam, who is looking for a forever home.  I'm sure it won't be long before he's snapped up; he's certainly full of personality!!  The catwalk became a dog walk for the evening, and the pooches were in their element, parading up and down the runway.

 Sam-I could've brought him home in a heartbeat!

...and lovely little Sam again!

Before I get wrapped up in talking about my love of all things four-legged, I better get back to the fashion!  We took our seats on the FROW and waited patiently (with some delicious popcorn!) to see the amazing looks available this summer!

Feeling fab on the FROW with Chloe and Lisa


Denim, the belt bag, sandals and sport luxe; Topshop is totally rocking a smart casual vibe this summer.  I loved the embellished denim jacket and I'll definitely be looking for a belt back to complete my holiday style!

One for the boys: Burton Menswear and Moss Bros.

Burton are playing it cool with their fun prints and relaxed vibes this summer.  But for the men in your life looking for something more formal, maybe for a day at the races or a summer wedding, Moss Bros has got your back.  My favourite look is this amazing multicoloured, leaf-print smoking jacket (above); I'm not sure my Mister would agree but I absolutely love it!  A fun take on a formal classic, perfection!

New Look

I always seem to forget about New Look, but they have some amazing pieces on offer this summer!  I love a French vibe, so was particularly besotted with the red-pant and Merci t-shirt combo!


Accessorize always have the most amazing beachwear!  I absolutely adore the white patterned mini-skirt (above), perfect for the summer sun be it daytime or evening.


It was a monochromatic affair from Evans, with perfect looks for a summer-wedding guest or an evening out.  My favourite this time was the all-black jumpsuit.

DW Fitness

Perfect for the beach, or making that body beach-ready, DW Fitness have some amazing summer sportswear-whether you like things cropped or not, there's something for all (even the boys!).

River Island

Neutrals and animal-print from River Island, I'm a little bit in love with those gorgeous mustard trousers!

Lipsy and House of Fraser

Floaty summer florals were on point from both Lipsy and House of Fraser, whilst the men played it cool.  One thing's for certain, there's plenty of style and choice on offer from both, whatever the occasion!


My favourite looks of the evening came from Coast, who had some great style ideas for a day at the races.  Sadly, I'm not looking for occasion wear this summer, but if I was, you can guess where I'd be headed-totally in love with it ALL!

SS18 from IntuFashion runs all weekend at the following times:

Friday 11th May: 4pm, 6pm

Saturday 12th May: 11am, 1pm, 3pm, 5pm

Thank you so much to the team at IntuMetrocentre for the invite, and to Molton Brown for my lovely hand massage (also thank you for all of the lovely free samples and food!).  I had a wonderful evening!

Until next time,
