Bath in Fashion Bloggers

To celebrate the launch of Bath in Fashion 2014, we hosted a special fashion scavenger hunt around the city for a selection of style bloggers.

We started the day at the famous Royal Crescent Hotel & Spa, where we gave bloggers a sneak peek at this year’s style-packed Bath in Fashion schedule (more on this at the bottom).

Our bloggettes were split into teams and challenged to find and Instagram as many of this season’s trends as they could within 2 hours, stopping at as many of Bath’s fabulous boutiques and shops as possible – and let me tell you, they took their task very seriously! To log their trends, the teams had post their pics on Instagram and use the #bathinfashion hashtag, as well as tagging the store they found it in.

We then gathered at the Fashion Museum, where the girls toured their latest exhibition, Georgians: Dress for Polite Society and some got right into the spirit of things by trying on a few of the outfits…

They then had the opportunity to be among the first to see the Dress of the Year 2014, as selected by style blogger Susie Lau of Style Bubble. This year’s choice was a fabulous sugar pink silk organza dress from leading British designer Christopher Kane’s Spring/Summer 2013 collection…

Finally, we totted up the scores and announced the winners of our challenge, Team Fashion Vultures, who took home an exclusive little green beauty box from Souk Souk - the lucky devils!

We’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who made the bloggers day possible, including our sponsors, The Fashion Museum – as well as The Royal Crescent Hotel & Spa, Bath BID and Visit Bath – as well as all the lovely retailers of Bath who welcomed our bloggers on the day.

A huge shout out also has to go to our generous goodie bag sponsors, Fabulous, BiOrganics, Weleda, Anthropologie and Liz Cox.
