NE1's Newcastle Fashion Week Blogger Preview Event

The best of the regions bloggers were invited to last Saturday afternoons invite only event, held in Newcastle’s newest premium establishment, Bonbar.

DDCA were proud to host the exclusive Blogger Preview event to launch the search to find the official blogger of NE1’s Newcastle Fashion Week 2014.

The best of the regions bloggers were invited to last Saturday afternoons invite only event, held in Newcastle’s newest premium establishment, Bonbar. Taking place in the exclusive 467 members only club, bloggers were greeted with a glass of prosecco on arrival accompanied by delicious hand-made DDCA cupcakes.

We kicked the day off with a welcome from Danielle herself followed by an introduction to the exciting events taking place during NE1’s Newcastle Fashion Week from NE1 Marketing and Events Manager, Sandra Tang.

On the day we had award winning make-up specialists ND, providing complimentary lash applications, hair demonstrations from Hair by Toni of Hooker & Young fame and if that wasn’t enough HD Brows specialist from Jealous Cow insured everyone left looking prepped and preened!

The decadent backdrop was extremely well complimented by the enthusiastic Bonbar cocktail connoisseurs, Johnny and Tony, who created a delicious cocktail exclusively for NE1’s NFW. Using a mix of Chase rhubarb vodka, wild nettle cordial, Fentimann’s Rose Lemonade and Kamm & Sons Aperitif, the drink was mouth-wateringly good! Bloggers have the chance to choose an inventive name for the tipple via Twitter, which will be available to order throughout NE1’s NFW.
