Yesterday evening (March 29th) I attended the Boohoo Spring/Summer 2016 #WeAreUs collection launch, held in The Morrison Hotel, Ormond Quay Lower in Dublin City. Ever in sync with the trends, this collection boasted soft suede, tailored looks, ethereal pastels & romantic lace as well as season staples including florals, swimsuits and monochrome. There were plenty of beautiful pieces which I’ve now got my eye on, as well as impressive accessories – the sunglasses were a big talk of the night by many bloggers & attendees. We were treated to great music, Polaroid photos and nibbles along with Prosecco, wine and cocktails with pretty little straws and floral arrangements throughout. I attended with my bestie Mei Ling of Darling Buds of Mei, and met up with many fellow blogger friends including Lisa Mc of Goss.ie, Damien of Damien Broderick, Lawson of Laws of Style, Alex of Pink Elephant Blog, Joana of Style Traces, Mary Cate of The Fashion Horn and Jayke McCabe.
Our squad of fierce females take girl power to the next level. From inspirational girl bosses to multi-linguists, campaigners to black-belt champions, our latest campaign tells the stories of what it means to be more than just a girl. There’s more than one side to every individual, so we wanna champion the people who are pushing boundaries, challenging stereotypes and just generally kicking a$$ every day. – Boohoo
Boohoo also launched their #MoreThanJustAGirl campaign recently that, as you read above, celebrates women being independent, influential and inspiring in all the best ways. The launch includes women of all sizes & races; from tall to petite and slim to curvy and of all skin colours, there are role models in the campaign to which many girls can relate to – and that’s how it should always be! The shop advert below showcases the different styles of these women too, varying from the girly girl to the rock chick and all that’s in between. See my friend Niamh O’Donoghue of Cultured Cuppa in her video for the campaign below the photos too!
The full #WeAreUs SS16 collection will be available soon at Boohoo.com, ranging from €8 to €50
A big thank you to Boohoo for the voucher, to Leah and team at Burrell PR for the invite & organisation, and to the staff at The Morrison Hotel!
