Celebrating Cambridge Fashion

Wednesday 20th February through to Sunday 24th will see the city of Cambridge follow in the big fashion footprints of its predecessors as the very first 'Cambridge Style Week' makes a big hit. Set to innovate, inform and inspire, the completely non profit event will bring together the best of British and, more importantly, Cambridge fashion, designers and brands. Whether you study fashion, run a fashion blog or simply just can't get enough of shopping for shoes, clothes and accessories; there will be something for everyone. 
As a blogger for the event, and a general fashion event lover (you'll often see me sat there at events, attractively open mouthed with my camera in hand), I wanted to let you all know about this fantastic venture in the hopes of you being able to attend and support it in its first year.
