A couple of weekends ago I was invited to the latest event with Manchester Arndale, Trends Illustrated, in collaboration with the amazing Dom & Ink. You’ve probably read about Dom a couple of times on amyjanealice, but if not (where have you been?!) you check him out here and here.

Trends Illustrated showcased SS15’s top trends of soft 70s, sports luxe, sweet pastels and bold florals, with Dom&Ink designing and illustrating six characters wearing this seasons most fashionale pieces. Any customer who spent £60 or over in the centre during the weekend was able to create their own tee, customised with one of many designs Dom created. From doughnuts, to unicorns, to mermaids to Taylor Swift quotes. You name it, it was there to add to your tee. Manchester Arndale very kindly gave me the opportunity to create my own tee, and after a lot of deliberation, I finally decided on a funky blue acid wash background with a unicorn pattern. Cute, right?

It was amazing to see such a buzz around the city centre that day; the t-shirt printing station was super busy all day and was definitely a hit. A huge thank you to Manchester Arndale for inviting me along to the event, and a huge well done to Dom for being such an amazing person and illustrator!
