I walk through the cathedral grounds each morning on my way into the workshop and I am swept away by the wonderful choral music coming from the cathedral - it really is inspiring!" Dress designer Kate Plumtree has also had her work displayed in Gloucester, when her ‘Worn to be W ild’ exhibition, which featured a magnificent array of animal-inspired dresses, went on show in 2012 at the Gloucester City Museum. Kate’s work includes principal costumes for the Royal Shakespeare Company and many West End shows including W icked, The Lion King and Grease.

The city features designer stores and outlets, as well as prestigious brands that have appeared on catwalks in London and New York. Blushes hairdressers, who are styling the hair for the Gloucester Style Ladies Lunch event, have been involved in London Fashion Week in the past doing hair for one of the designers.

Pastel shades of the summer make way for block royal blues, reds and chunky knits with anything but dainty necklaces.

Mid length skirts are no longer for the less fashionable, so keep the length longer for an elegant day wear look. If you’re feeling a little more daring, pair black boots with a skater skirt. We have selected this leather number from Warehouse which can be worn with a knit or a pastel blouse tucked in.

Lola Royle is a local fashion stylist, presenter, reporter and writer who has worked on events including London Fashion Weekend and 'We Are Fashion Live' at Westfield Shopping Centre. We caught up with Lola on why she is so excited for Gloucester Style week. Where are your favourite places to shop in Gloucester? Gloucester showcases a wide range of fashion and I love the mix of independent boutiques, top high-street retailers and designer pieces available at the Gloucester Quays outlet. There is so much on offer which makes it very difficult to have a firm favourite. Are there any hidden gems in Gloucester that our readers should know about? Firstly, there is the 'Miss Silver Boutique' which is a bespoke

boutique specialising in gorgeous vintage designs. Measured perfectly to your size and hand sewn by Sylvia herself, this brand is pure fashion perfection. The second hidden gem is FAB AND FADED on Longsmith Street that left me in awe with fashion pieces dating from the 1920s to original 1950s home ware. Not only can you browse, admire and purchase clothes, you can have a cuppa and a handmade piece of cake while you look! Which trend are you most excited about for autumn/ winter 2013? My personal favourite AW13 trend is metallic. Think silvers, golds and bronze with beautiful embellishment and texture. This trend is perfect for the fast approaching festive period and by adding a shimmer of glitter it will jazz up any outfit. What have you enjoyed the most about putting together the events for Gloucester Style? I have thoroughly enjoyed meeting new people and retailers who are also extremely excited about firmly putting Gloucester city on the fashion and style radar!

Berry lips and coral blushers are some of the biggest beauty trends featured on the autumn/ winter 2013 catwalks. Fitting perfectly with our vintage ladies lunch and autumn-themed fashion shows, we asked a panel of judges to review some of the hottest products around right now. From big brands to those just launching this season, we put a number of lipsticks and cheek stains to the test.

Gloucester Style Festival would not be complete without some killer hairstyles on our catwalks. We are lucky enough to have three amazing hair salons working with us on each of our main events throughout the week. From blondes to brunettes, poker straight to curly, Blushes, Cream, and Peter Hickman talk to us about their favourite ‘must have’ looks and products for the new season. ‘’This season's must have hair’’ is all about short pixie crops, gorgeous bobs and above-the-shoulder dos... Short hair is having a major revival at the moment and it’s a reaction to the overdone glamour of the past few

worn slightly longer to the collar length and cleverley cut to create a slight kick at the ends, thus creating body, texture and a more streamlined look for autumn/witer 2013...but the biggest emerging seasonal trend is an up-front

seasons, this pixie crop invasion is fresh and modern and so on-trend. A cut this short is great for face framing structure, oodles of texture and can also take the strongest of colours. Bobs are timeless and can be tailored to every hair need and texture, but the bob of the moment is ‘the kick bob’

Discover a new spin on curls. Redkens exclusive curl memory complex. This product reactivates shape for increased manageability and also controls frizz with amazing shine. Creating more movement and softness to hair which compliments the colouring of the season; warm and cool tones adding texture and depth to the hair. Curls and waves never looked so good!

W inter will soon be upon us so make sure your ready for those darker days with a fresh new look. French style is timeless and is yet again a top trend for this time of year. Warmer tones are great for the winter months, so caramels, chestnuts, burgundys and mahognays are a must to allow you to not just look warmer but feel warmer. Remember to replace that matte lipstick look for a fresh petal or berry stain, which will be great throughout the colder months ahead. Blushes - 01452 528342 74-76 Westgate Street, Gloucester
