What to expect this West Coast Cooler Belfast FASHIONWEEK AW’15!

Wednesday, October 07, 2015

Well……..it’s that time again when NI’s fashionista’s come out in force to celebrate all that is fashionable at FASHIONWEEK! While there are lots of catwalk shows to attend, there is so much more to the FASHIONWEEK schedule, and here are a few of my top picks!

For anyone who wants something a little different, Saturday 17th October is THE day to attend FASHIONWEEK with a myriad of events scheduled throughout, beginning with the return of the original Fashion Souk at BFW HQ, boasting a mixture of stalls and pop up stores for vintage and pre-loved items from 11am-4pm! So make sure you pop along as the Souk as it is sure to contain some hidden fashion treasures! 

Also kicking off at BFW HQ from 11am is the new body image symposium and workshop ‘To Be Beautiful’, featuring nutrition and body image experts as well as performer and body image campaigner Katie Richardson, as they explore the issues around the subject of body image. For more information tel: 028 9042 1509 or email cathy@cmprireland.com to join discussions on the day.

For those of us who love to combine our love of fashion, food and cocktails, fashionista’s can also make their way to the uber-chic "Sushi Saturday" event, hosted at one of my favourite places to eat, Zen!

Sushi Saturday will run from 1.30pm – 5pm and provides a specially curated “Director’s Cut” of the top looks from FASHIONWEEK, perfect for those who cannot make the evening catwalk shows! Guests will enjoy West Coast Cooler cocktails and an Asian inspired afternoon tea - all for the bargain price of £30 per person! (To book, call 028 90421 509).

Best of all I can give all of you, my lovely readers a sneak peek at Sushi Saturday's menu!


To Start:
A selection of Sushi (1 raw fish e.g. Salmon or Tuna, 1 cooked e.g. soft shell crab or Prawn, 1 vegetable e.g. cucumber or avocado and one meat e.g. parma ham or seared beef).
Main Course:
Irish Fillet Steak, served on Red Rice with Asparagus and Long Green Beans with Terriyaki or Black Pepper Sauce.
Chunky Chicken served on Red Rice with Chilli, Fresh Basil and Spicy Terriyaki Sauce.
Teppanyaki Salmon Fillet with Creamy Coconut Dressing with Red Rice.
Fresh Fruit and Sorbet.

Then to finish off the day, EXCEL will once again grace the stylish FASHIONWEEK catwalk with their own full show running from 8pm!

With only a week to go until FASHIONWEEK is here, there really is something for everyone during their schedule of events, hope to see you all there!
