Michelle Keegan’s SS16 range for Lipsy London is finally here!
Last Thursday celebrated the launch of British actress Michelle Keegan’s Lipsy range.
Seen frequently in fashion magazines; her departure from Coronation Street not only meant the end of well-loved character Tina McIntyre but also marked the beginning of a budding career in the fashion industry.
I was lucky enough to attend the event and made my way past the crowd of photographers waiting for Michelle to arrive and stepped inside the beautiful Rosewood Hotel.
The set up was absolutely stunning in a large hall lit up with candles with a centre piece dripping in flowers and bite-size desserts.
Drinks were offered upon arrival and I was free to roam the hall viewing samples of Michelle’s designs.
Lipsy’s aesthetic is sexy, young and accentuates the curves, true to their word, it is no surprise they chose to collaborate with the Michelle who is no stranger to the red carpet.
They were my go-to brand during my freshman years at university, for every invited party and also throughout my serial dating days for that perfect ‘night out’ dress, the type that we never seem to stock in our wardrobes on the night we need it most.
So being familiar with the brand, I was expecting to see an array of dresses. I was pleasantly surprised however, to learn that Michelle has created a range of faux fur coats, intentionally designed to look glam enough to pair with your favourite dress under the cold British whether.
Lipsy’s new fragrance ‘Caged Dream’ made lovely looking ornaments around the table, a sweet little novelty item for the bedroom whether the bottle is half full or entirely empty.
While I was admiring the floral, sweet smell of ‘Caged Dream’ I got chatting to Steve Mallett from Curtis PLC, the man behind the packaging and design of Lipsy’s new fragrance. Here is a snap of us both at the event.
For the event I wore a lace Lipsy top from Michelle Keegan’s AW15 range paired with Marc by Marc Jacobs leather pants. I was able to catch Michelle for a quick chat who told me that she almost wore the same thing!
Michelle was lovely and seemed excited to celebrate the launch and hear everyone’s thoughts of her new collection.
Others who attended included Made in Chelsea stars Stephanie Pratt, Louise Thompson and Ashley James.
