The Queen of Cakes

I’m a big Mary Berry fan, so when I heard she was coming to the Living North fair, I had to get tickets. Like London Fashion Week, I was dying to get front row seats to this and I was not disappointed. The woman is a legend! For just under an hour, she demonstrated three recipes, a pork dish, a cake and some canapes.

She’s also always incredibly well dressed – I love watching The Great British Bake off to see her outfits each week.

I’ve been a big fan for years, pre-bake off show and it was great to see her live.

Here’s the close up of the cake!

I was incredibly overwhelmed as I met her at the end! We talked over some of her recipes and I professed my love for baking her wild strawberry and walnut cake.

Newcastle Fashion Week – ETC magazine

We’ve had some great support for NE1′s Newcastle Fashion Week from media and press. Etc Magazine had a great photo shoot showcasing some of our fashion designers, who are taking part in our Fashion Front Row event. Fashion Front Row will be one of our main catwalks and helps to showcase and champion our North East fashion design talent. ┬áCheck out a few of the photos from the shoot!

Here’s the photos of the fantastic hats designed by The Libertarian (I wore one of her hats down to London Fashion Week, they are amazing and you can see her full collection here):

You can see the full shoot and magazine here.We’re even on the front cover! Don’t miss their next edition, which features collections from the retailers involved in our Eldon Square’s Fashion’s Day Out event.
