The holiday season is almost upon us which means it is time to start shopping for fashions to rock to all this season’s suave soirees. Anyone looking for glamorous clothes to add to the holiday wardrobe need not look any further than French Connection! Last night the hip line gave bloggers, editors and fashionistas a preview of their holiday collection at Sharp Magazine’s FCUK Holiday Style Preview Party. The in-store downtown event was intimate and electrifying as the party featured a chic fashion show and live show from up and coming indie rock band… The Beaches!
The event was swarming with members of the fashion industry all keen to snap shots of the gorgeous FCUK clothing and trends in the runway show! French Connection is all about encapsulating hip, chic fashion with a classic British twist! In the runway show trends such as velvet, jewel tones and bold patterns were super hot. Lesson learnt? If you want to make a statement this holiday season don’t be afraid to be boldly elegant!
The Runway Show
The runway show featured lovely holiday fashions for both men and women all available in store and online at frenchconnection.com
! French Connection is the perfect shopping hub for those in search of high-quality, on-trend staples that make every outfit a stand out.What were the hottest looks in the show? A glittery emerald evening gown for women and a daper velvet suit for men both the perfect compliment for the sartorial couple looking to put all eyes on them this holiday season!
The Beaches Rocked FCUK
Of course one of the highlights of the evening was when indie rock back The Beaches took the stage to perform their edgy cool music! The authentic alt rock group made up of Jordan Miller, Kylie Miller, Leandra Earl and Eliza Enman-McDaniel is taking the music and fashion scene by storm as their funky, grungy hit Loner has been chosen as the backing track for French Connection’s Fall/Winter International 2013 Ad Campaign!
Not only did these rockers look amazing on stage decked out in French Connection they proved to have intense stage presence and no one in the audience could take their eyes off them! The music was blaring and the urban mixture of guitar, drums, keyboard and some pretty unreal vocals made this performance come completely alive. Not only do these girls write all their own music they also put in countless hours of practice to make their tours completely perfect and they are still in school (the Miller sisters are in Grade 11 and 12). Jordan and Kylie told “It is a lot of hard work and it can definitely be hard to manage with school. You need to make sure you have all your home work done and you have to be very organized.”
The Beaches are undeniably one of Canada’s hottest indie girl bands and one of the reason they have been so successful with their music career thus far is due to the fact they feel so at home in their genre “we are playing music that we connect to and that we would listen to ourselves” explained Jordan and Kylie. It’s clear this girl band is jam-packed with edgy talent and will no doubt continue to shoot for the top of the charts!
Overall, the FCUK Holiday Style Preview hosted by Sharp Magazine was fabulous and a very cool event to be able to attend. A big thank you to FCUK and Sharp for the invitation to check out this evening of great clothes and great music!
