As always, it was lovely to see the Evans team again, they greeted us warmly, and we started chatting away. There was also a juice bar, tasty canape's, and other little nibbles available to indulge in, while we waited on the rest of the bloggers. Then Stephanie, Claire, Rosie, Carla, Naomi, and Lauren arrived. It was amazing to meet these fabulous bloggers, they're awesome, and I hope to see them again soon!

Before the Evans design team, took us through the inspiration behind the new line, we had the opportunity to wander around, and look at the new collections, including Style 369. After looking through the collection on our own, the Evans design team, told us a little of what's to come, this A/W 2011. 70's glamour, 1930's elegance, and high quality, are some of the inspirations for the A/W 2011 collection. This season, Evans is more "grown up" and sophisticated, whereas Style 369 is more vibrant and youthful, so now there is a clear distinction between the two sister brands.
The Evans design team are friendly and geuninely passionate about what they do, and they have brillant idea's and plans in the pipeline, which will be revealed soon. As I've said before, Evans are aware of their weaknesses, and they are working very hard to rectify them. I wish them the best of luck with their plans, because it sounds amazing, and I'm confident they'll be able to pull it off! Also, there were a lot of pieces that caught my attention, that I would definitely buy and wear. Overall, I'm delighted with the Evans A/W 2011 collection (including Style369), and I have something to look forward too, when the colder season comes around!
Isn't that black spotted sleeve dress cute?!
