The Pokey Hat

Thursday, 22 November 2012

Well hello there,
On Tuesday night I was lucky enough to be invited (via the amazing ScottishBloggerNetwork website!)to The Pokey Hat launch party for Jeffrey Campbell's. So after a hectic day at college I rushed home to get ready, and of course panicked over what to wear, eyelash dramas and nearly being late for my train; Dad to the rescue, though I doubt he'll ever see this, THANKS so much Dad! 
Anyways onto the show The Pokey Hat is a Glasgow based online fashion store, and the fashion show/launch party was in honour not only of their new collection and celebrating young Scottish designers, but as a celebration of The Pokey Hat now being an official Jeffrey Campbell stockist! Here's a little background on The Pokey Hat from their website:

"WHERE DO WE COME FROM
From Scotland with a major sweet tooth and a life long passion for dressing up it seemed only natural for founder of The Pokey Hat, Jen, to set up a clothing business and name it after a Glaswegian Ice Cream Cone!
Founded in 2011 from a humble Ebay store, The Pokey Hat now enjoys a fabulous online community of fashion fans on Facebook, Twitter and Chictopia and it's you, the fans, telling us what you want which shapes our future."
Sadly my camera is broken and I am waiting till Christmas for a new one... so I had to rely on my trusty iPhone which sadly doesn't deliver the best photos! Alas I got a few which aren't too bad :)







Apologies for the poor quality photos... :(

So there we have it my first fashion show! How exciting, and we were sat F-Row, a huge thank you to everyone at The Pokey Hat who organised an amazing launch party at FabrIQ, Glasgow. The three collections we saw were amazing; two by The Pokey Hat and the other a culmination of work by three up-and-coming Scottish designers Claudette, Once upon a Time and StaySick. I really liked the wide variety of styles showcased in the show and I especially loved the all over sequinned skirt, but sadly didn't get a good enough picture of it! Luckily there are some amazing pictures on The Pokey Hat facebook page. And of course all of the outfits set off by gorgeous Jeffrey Campbell shoes! I'm awfully clumsy and so have avoided them for fear of diasater but seeing so many beautiful pairs, is really tempting me! Perhaps something to save for, and just take the safety risk ;) All in all a great wee Tuesday night in Glasgow, it was also lovely to see fellow bloggers again and meet some lovely new ones. 
Till next time,
Iona
