I took my front row seat last Saturday to watch Enchanted and was blown away by a very grown up fairy tale. ‘Enchanted’ was the Bullring’s major contribution to this year’s Style Birmingham, and it was a truly stunning spectacle. A baroque fairytale filled with gothic glamour and acres of brocade, sparkle and lace, ‘Enchanted’ was a truly, well, enchanting show that showcased piece after beautiful piece from the major Bullring stores. And with the gorgeous Lydia Bright presenting, and some pretty amazing hair styles enhanced by a range of eye-catching wigs, this proved to be a show that will stay in the mind for a long time to come.
Lydia Bright, the standout style star from The Only Way is Essex, looked resplendent in a 1960s style embellished dress from Monsoon, and this set the scene for everything from Chanel style jackets to brocade trousers and tulle and chiffon skirts. Cos, French Connection, Monsoon and Reiss were just some of the retailers who featured in the show, and the styling was decidedly feminine, even masculine style outfits were given a girlie twist. And as for the aforementioned hair. Just imagine if Amy Winehouse met Alice in Wonderland and you get the idea. The hair was just fabulous – a real talking point.
Full marks once again to Emma Roberts and the Bullring team for creating a magical experience which enchanted everyone who was able to view it.
