Bath has long been a fashionable destination, a place to see and be seen. In 2015 the city continued to flex its stylish credentials and attracted the international fashion pack who lined up to share their style secrets and made this year’s Bath In Fashion event another jam-packed affair.
In its sixth year, Bath in Fashion showcased an eclectic mix of celebrated designers, influential editors, opinionated fashion writers and style pundits alongside behind-the-scenes creatives who discussed and debated, celebrated and championed the ever-changing, all-encompassing world of fashion.
Bath in Fashion 2015 welcomed a host of front row guests including acclaimed New York designer Anna Sui, Roksanda Ilinic, Holly Fulton, renowned Style.com fashion critic Tim Blanks talking with Grazia’s Susannah Frankel about the work of Alexander McQueen, super-blogger Susie Lau and London Fashion Week’s latest catwalk sensation, Ed Marler. Embellishing Fashion was the title for a special lecture by the Royal School of Needlework and embellishment of the body was discussed with Mo Coppoletta, one of the world’s most famous tattoo artists.
Bath In Fashion 2015, in partnership with one of Europe’s oldest department stores Jolly’s, offered a host of un-missable talks, catwalk shows, hands-on knitting and jewellery workshops, fashion films, a vintage fashion fair, engaging exhibitions and a community crochet project in aid of Kids Company.
The event is managed and funded by the Bath Business Improvement District in collaboration with businesses across the city. Bath in Fashion has developed an international reputation building on the city’s strong fashion credentials with a leading fashion design course at Bath Spa University and a world-class Fashion Museum. The Georgians thought their bright new spa town was radical and bold – today, Bath in Fashion nurtures that same spirit of innovation and creativity with a very contemporary twist.
