Me, Lulu, & the lovely Sian Astley
It was certainly what was known in the Twitter world as a ‘Fashionable Friday’ in Manchester yesterday. Leaving the sunshine and entering the luxury paradise that is Poshu, we were immediately greeted by an array of the most fabulous handbags.
Mrs Moregeous wants this one...& the champagne!
Loving the girl in the red trousers...she looked amazing!
Part of the Lulu Guinness Appreciation Society!
And what was even better was that the fabulous lady behind these glorious bags was also in attendance…Lulu Guinness OBE (in an equally fab dress, which I shall be going out to find today). The brand was launched in 1989 and became instantly successful. A Lulu Guinness bag is a statement, not only of style, but of individuality. They are quirky, fun and full of personality – and what makes them even more special is that you can see Lulu in each piece, which is a feat that is rarely achieved by many designers.
Me chatting to the lovely Lulu
Personally, I have always been a huge fan of Lulu Guinness. Like me, Lulu has no formal ‘fashion’ training but possesses a real passion for fashion, which is clearly evident in her collections. It was great to meet Lulu and have a brief chat with her – she was delightful and guessed that I was a fashion blogger…I was one very chuffed fashionista.
Last year, Lulu was awarded The Independent Handbag Designer Awards ICONOLAST Award for Lifetime Achievement in Handbag Design.
If you love handbags, then you’re gonna love Lulu…
Thanks to the lovely Sian Astley, from Moregeous, for her fab photography and whose blog post about the event, you can read here. Also thanks to Emma & Co at Poshu for a fantastic event, cute cupcakes (that were so tasty, they were dangerous) and champagne!
The heavenly cupcakes...I ate 5!
P.S. If you’re reading this Mr Moregeous, Mrs Moregeous wants the gold bag above (champagne not included). I would like to point out that I have not received any bribes for pointing this out to you...I am merely just trying to help you in the 'browny' points department!
