Fashion: Coast Opens at Manchester’s Trafford Centre

The other week, I nearly died and went to dress heaven. I attended the invite only launch party of the new Coast store in Manchester’s Trafford Centre, which was presented as a lovely red carpet affair! Upon entry, there was complimentary champagne, bottled peroni’s and non alcoholic concoctions whilst the guests were able to browse the shiny new store and all the gorgeous dresses! An exclusive catwalk show to showcase A/W12 collections was put on, with the models strutting down the catwalk wearing an array of gowns only to be desscribes as luxe and breath-taking! I actually don’t know if I would ever have such an occasion suitable to turn up to in any of those dresses! They were beautiful – just like the imitations of those seen on A-List celebrities at award ceremonies.

The new store is designed with a glamourous touch – lots of table displays and rows and rows of rails with stunning garments. Mannequins surround the store displaying a mix of evening dresses and daytime-esque ensembles. Amongst the fashion hungry were the girls from Hollyoaks, Emmerdale and Coronation Street, who all looked even more miniscule in real life than they do on the TV. I’m only a tiny 5ft4 and a size 6-8 but I literally felt like a giant next to them! The TV really must add the pounds on…

Take a look at my gallery of photos from the event below. The new store is situated facing Selfridges on the top floor of The Trafford Centre and is a certain ‘must visit’ destination in the run up to the Christmas Party season!
