Like every other ~young creative~ in the entire country I recently moved to London, but my heart is still in Manchester. I love London, but the worst thing about it is the nightlife. Sure there are dozens of fancy bars and great-in-theory club-nights, but in Manchester there's a night for everyone, any day of the week, and you don't need to buy tickets 10 weeks in advance. Manchester's night-out fashion is reflective of this: you could go to a student club in a t-shirt and trainers (if you are that way inclined, although I can't say I've ever been a trainers in a club kind of gal), or go full Deansgate weekend warrior in a bandage dress and heels that you will inevitably be carrying on the way home (if not before). As well as all that, people in Manchester do actually dress well, so here's a bit about how to do that...
Miss Selfridge's party dresses are, imo, their forte. A few weeks ago (and you may have noticed this if you follow me on Instagram) I was invited to shoot with Miss Selfridge for their brand new Dress Hub, which is based around the distinctive styles of four different UK cities. I'm representing Manchester, obviously, whilst super babes Olivia, Amelia and Jennifer showed off London, Birmingham and Glasgow respectively - how incredible are the photos and video with the cityscape projections?
You can shop Manchester style here, and if you're not sure which city style suits you best take the short quiz (and be in with a chance of winning a 200 quid voucher, too!)
