NFW: Y Salon 30th Birthday Bash


Another event I took part in for Newcastle Fashion Week (I couldn’t do many because of essays and exams) was on Tuesday night, Y Salon‘s (in Eldon Gardens in Newcastle) 30th Birthday Bash! I got two free tickets to the event, so I invited my friend Fran who’s at Newcastle too but I hadn’t been able to see in a while. This is what she wore, doesn’t she look amazing?!


It was a lovely night; we got given free mojitos (although we weren’t too fond of them!!), free mini cupcakes, mini Yorkshire puddings with roast beef (awesome!!), other little canapes and chocolates afterwards.We weren’t really sure what was going to be happening at the event, although we knew we were going to be shown the salon’s collection, Paper Roses, but we were so excited to find out that it was set out like a Fashion Show with a catwalk and everything!


They did a couple of demonstrations of how to do ‘big hair’ on the catwalk, and then they showed the rest of the collection in a Fashion Show style catwalk with the music playing. I’ve just put up a few of the pictures I got here, it was a bit funny lighting in there, but I did the best I could! I absolutely loved the bob style haircut, I’m definitely considering that for if I ever get bored of having long hair, I really liked it. And the dress she was wearing was amazing too.


And after we’d seen all the normal ones, we got to see the Haute Couture collection, which was amazing!! Although the second two had a bit of trouble walking!! It must have taken so much time and effort and to prepare these girls for the catwalk!


And a final photo of what I was wearing! I didn’t actually wear my hair up to the event, I had it up in a bun because it was still slightly wet and I was trying to get a bit of wavy curlyness in it, but I totally forgot to get a picture of it later! I absolutely love this dress too! I got it a few weeks ago in H&M for only £9.99, I love wearing it! But I wish I had a cropped jacket to wear with it, all I had was my denim jacket which is slightly too big and hangs a bit, but nevermind!

Denim Jacket: Dorothy Perkins
Striped Maxi Dress: H&M

    It looks like some schmoozy fun! And I’m trying to decide which I’d go for first: free yorkshire puddings or free mojitos. I guess that’s why I have two hands!

    I love your outfit- you look so breezy and carefree! And the dress is such a steal! 😀 This event sounds like a ton of fun- I wish I had the chance to attend a fashion event near me! =)

    Thanks for the sweet comment on my blog! =) These are such awesome pics. Love all the crazy outfits. Your striped dress is so cute… and I love those adorable mini cupcakes! I would have had to eat like 60 haha.

    It was a really awesome event,just about to type up my own thoughts on it, my friends and I (the goths in the corner) seem to have slipped into some of your photos there!

    Wow, sounds like a great event! (and i love mojitos).
    The striped maxi is so awesome – i just got one myself, but i’ve yet to style it.

    This looks like so much fun. I do the same trick to my hair to get a little bit of something wavy by pinning it up.

  14. June 1, 2011 / 4:12 pm

    Oh wow this looks so great and the both of you look stunning! And I was delighted to hear you wanted to meet me in Newcastle but we were only there from 10:30 to 15:45 which was really short! But I’m a bit jealous that you live there since the city and the shops are so great! And I love English people, they seem so much nicer then Dutch ones haha. I’m not sure I’m coming back soon since my mom was a case of serious sea sickness. But I’m moving to Amsterdam in a month so I’ve your ever there I can show you around (when I got to know the city myself :P).

    I think the dress still looks great with the denim jacket. Glad you had fun!
