ANTICIPATION is mounting as Fashion Week gets ready to hit Belfast.

West Coast Cooler’s infamous Belfast Fashion Week is set to feature looks from a variety of leading retailers in the popular High-Street Catwalk Show, from luxurious high-street designers such as United Colors of Bennetton, Blush and French Connection.

Yet it is also set to showcase more purse-friendly trends from the likes of George Clothing at Asda, alongside samples from a variety of retailers at Westfield Castle Court, whose on-trend clothing store Exhibit stole the show at last year’s high-street exhibition for Belfast Fashion Week Autumn / Winter 2012.

Whereas last season chunky knits and tailored coats featured heavily on the runway, retailers are certain to take advantage of the summer trends ahead of this season’s Spring/Summer high-street runway.

Whilst the floral-trend looks set to return once again as the original summer staple, it is predicted the skater-skirt looks set to continue to dominate this season’s wardrobe, with its playful, ready-to-wear feel confirming it as a key trend for summer. Update the original skater skirt with lace or leather,  and look out for eye-popping colours for an on-trend look.


Meanwhile the popular leather look, which featured heavily throughout Autumn/Winter, looks set to stay, with lighter-weight leathers and lighter hues set to be abundant.

Feminine lace remains a popular trend, whilst denim is updated with the acid-wash in keeping with the popular retro-style set to rejuvenate this season’s wardrobe.

Playful retro pieces will be reflected in vibrant costume jewellery, alongside vintage accessories and mod-style mini dresses in vibrant eye-catching colours.


Meanwhile, hems of dresses are lowering in the form of the silhouette flattering pencil-skirts in keeping with the vintage-style, as well as the new midi-dress which has been featured heavily among high-street stores, taking style- inspiration from the likes of designer Phillip Lim.

Taking creative inspiration from fashion powerhouse Chanel, the monochrome trend remains a key look this season, with fun playful stripes and designs rejuvenating the classic trend for summer.

The runway collection should promise to feature a colourful array of looks, with burnt orange and navy predicted to be key colours for Spring/Summer.

West Coast Cooler’s Fashion Week begins March 21 2013, with tickets at £20 per show. It promises to feature the George at Asda show; the Designer and Designer Boutique Show; with the popular High Street Catwalk Show concluding the week’s events.

See for more.
