A few weeks ago I was invited to take part in #Flashmobfashion at Manchester Arndale.

It was a three day event with loads of brands taking part in this Simply Be, Top Shop, Next, Oasis, Superdry to name but a few.

This was such an exciting event! Manchester Arndale is always buzzing but that weekend it really felt electric! This was a really cool idea to get the latest Spring fashion collections in front of such a wide audience.

Over 1,000 pieces of new Spring fashion were modeled by beautifully lithe and talented professional dancers who performed flashmob style, along to some top tunes,  in four locations around the Arndale. It was amazing to watch the reactions on peoples faces when the music started and the dancers began to strut their stuff!

My personal favourite was outside Next in Exchange Court where the dancers were performing on a giant revolving vinyl disc.

After each performance, the stores then hosted happy hour discounts, for the hour following the show, with 25 lucky audience members being given the chance to pull a £50 voucher out of the hat in-store too!

There were free beauty demonstrations in Halle Square from The Body Shop, Lush, Bumble & Bumble, Hotel Chocolat, The Fragrance Shop. I had a lovely hand massage at the Hotel Chocolat stand, who have brought out a whole new range of skincare products called Cocoa Juvenate. The products are natural, energising and rejuvenating, made in the same ethical way as their chocolate in Saint Lucia. I sampled the body polish and body butter and it really did hydrate my hands – they stayed super smooth and smelling delicious for ages. I also had a little pamper at the Bumble & Bumble stand where I was given a big and bouncy hair do in a matter of minutes! Fab.

It was great to chat to the well-informed ladies in Simply Be who told me all about their range for plus size women. Their range goes from 14 to 32 and they offer a free personal styling service. I was really impressed with the ranges – everything is very on trend and they even have a AX Paris Curve range! I love this cute floral number. A bargain at £40.

If you missed this spectacular #Flashmobfashion event, do not worry – it was the first but it certainly won’t be the last!
