Fresh Laces x Harvey Nichols Manchester Review

Fresh Laces, Harvey Nichols, Elisha Francis, Sneaker Event

Last Friday we had the amazing opportunity to showcase our jewelry designs at the luxury department store Harvey Nichols Manchester for one day only as part of the Fresh Laces Sneaker & Lifestyle event.

The atmosphere was electric from the moment the doors opened for the press and I had the pleasure of meeting the team from La Vida Magazine as well as the amazing Manchester Bloggers who teamed up with us to help support and promote the event to Manchester City.

I was a busy bee networking, selling and organising on the day to  ensure everything ran smoothly and with the Fresh Laces and Harvey Nichols team by my side it was truly a Dream Team :)

It was so great to meet many of the Fresh Laces x Harvey Nichols Official Bloggers in person and thank them for their efforts and support.

We made Goodie Bags for each of them including a special jewellery gift from moi, a pair of Fresh 'Laces' as well as gift vouchers from The Holiday Boutique and Beyond Hair and topped off with some Harvey Nichols goodies. The music one the day was provided by the awesome Dixon Brothers who you can catch on Kiss FM, DJ 10 Faces and DJ Bluey also jumped on the customised Fresh Laces DJ booth and Drummer Extraordinaire Nathstar smashed it (literally) on the drums.

The sneakers on show was ridiculous, I had my eye on the Sky High liquid gold and silver dunks from Mr Sneaker and a stunning bomber jacket by Benjart.

A must have on the day was a can of Crep Protect, if you love your sneakers YOU NEED THIS IN YOUR LIFE! 

I even had an interview with Socialize Media on all things sneakers...

Sole Flesh had an array of cool snap backs and From Virginia was looking rather dapper as he worked on some material, he had a very impressive customised Balenciaga handbag on show.

Davo Howarth a Manchester based artist had amazing artwork on show which you couldn't help but marvel over.

Overall the day was a great success!  I would like to end by saying a MASSIVE THANK YOU to Harvey Nichols Manchester from hosting such an EPIC event- we can't wait for the next one.
