Bath in Fashion 2012:

Now in its third year, Bath in Fashion is back with an amazing lineup of talks, workshops, catwalk shows and special shopping events running from the 25th March – 1st April.  I, for one, am thrilled to see such a great fashion event running in the beautiful city of Bath, so close to my hometown.  It embraces both vintage, historic and current elements of the fashion world – bringing them all together in a world heritage setting.

Although it is well worth a visit for the shopping experience alone – here’s a line up of some of the great events planned for the week:
* Manolo Blahnik in conversation with renowned fashion writer Iain R Webb. This is a rare opportunity to hear his story and views on life, shoes and the city he calls home.
