This Month’s Fashion Events: in the North.

April 8, 2013

And many more!

Fashion events in the North, as you know if you’re unfortunate enough to live here too, are usually so few and far between that they sneak up like a good buy in a Topshop sale. They’re also inexplicably difficult to discover, unless you’re in the Fashion/PR/Marketing industry, generally due to a lack of coverage and a lack of an obvious ‘HELLO WE POST NORTHERN FASHION EVENTS’ Twitter page. This narks me off, no end, as I always seem to miss out on stuff and end up finding it popping up all over the Twittersphere weeks later so, before we all start emigrating to London – I’ve done a little research and here’s a compilation of events (generally in the Manchester area) that I’ve spotted coming up this month:

Liverpool Fashion Live Event!

October 20, 2012

After an absolutely terrible week, I finally decided to get out of my sorry state of bed-sulking and get back out there – to Liverpool Fashion Live at the Pan America bar at the Albert Docks on Thursday.

Life Lesson Learned: If you want to go to the fucking gig, get tickets for the fucking gig.

January 11, 2012

I love a good gig. There is very little, sex aside, that can top that nervy feeling of euphoria when you’re waiting for your favourite band to come onstage at your favourite gig venue. Same goes for howling along to your favourite lyrics or hanging on the every word of the lead singer… Gigs are just awesome. As a rule, I’ve had a terrible habit in the past of finding tickets of gigs that I really want to go to, then spending way too long deliberating about buying the tickets – only to lose them and be faced with buying them off eBay for stupid prices, or wait for their next tour. This unfortunate situation occurred last year when I was looking to buy tickets to see one of my favourite artists – Laura Marling.
