Laura Ashley AW15 Press Day

A couple of months ago (is it really July?) we went to the gorgeous Laura Ashley press day, a new one for us. Although we've both grown up with the brand (who else had a fair few bits in their bedrooms - curtains especially - from Laura Ashley?), the fashion side of things is relatively fresh for us. We've seen so many beautiful prints in store, it was one we were definitely looking forward to.

First things first, it was massive. Home and fashion were in separate rooms, with mood boards and texture walls, giving you a whirlwind tour around the collection and what inspired each piece. Collaborations with British Heritage tweed and rich jewel colours as well as coloured faux fur, the collection was full of beautiful quality pieces with some real stand out gems too.

The home collection was absolutely huge, with lots of different themes - french navy and china white, blush pink and smoky grey, rust and gold - and prints, décor and lighting to match.

The Christmas collection was also a highlight, with a giant lit WISH sign (on both our wish lists for sure). All traditional and classic colours - red, green, gold, white and silver - with beautiful wreaths, gifts and decorations.

We went away with a biscuit in our favourite dress print from The Biscuiteers, which was absolutely delicious (and gorgeously decorated, too)!

  1. Laura Ashley is such an iconic brand - I'd have all their homeware if I had the money! That dress and matching biscuit are so cool (maybe I just really love biscuits) :p Gisforgingers xx
