Ok so this post is massively overdue (naughty blogger). Quite some weeks ago now, myself and Toni headed to the Manchester Arndale for the Flashmob Fashion event. On arrival we were greeted by the Lovely Leanne of LFJ PR, and shown round the hub area of the event.

Over the course of 3 days the Arndale was host to a fashion extravaganza including pop up pamper stations, offering hair, make-up, skin care and perfume consultations from high street brands including The Body Shop, Boots No7 and Hotel Chocolat.
I headed over to the Body Shop stand where I was treated to a full face of make up and given lots of helpful tips on products and techniques..

After experiencing some of the pamper treatments we were whisked off to see the first Fashion Flashmob of the day. Instead of just using regular models the clothes were modeled by professional dancers who performed slick routines on a revolving stage. I loved this twist on a traditional fashion show as not only was it really entertaining but it gave you a better idea of how the clothes looked on and how the fabric moved.
After the excitement of the first flashmob we got the opportunity to speak with Debs the Arndale's resident Stylist who had worked alongside Leanne in creating this brilliant event. It was really interesting to hear how it had all taken shape, and the influences behind the styling for the flashmobs.
We then went on over to Simply Be, where we had a great chat with the team and had a good look round the store. I was especially excited about this part as its the first time I've been to the Manchester store after having to miss the opening last year because I was in London.

We really had the loveliest day thanks to the Arndale and Leanne at LFJ PR, so thanks for inviting us!!
