For the first time ever, I went to a factory outlet, the Fashion Fish in Schoenenwerd. I imagined outlets to be sad places with a lot of jumble more for the label-addicted than for the real fashion lovers. What I found was far better than what I could have imagined and surprised me. But let's start from the beginning:
The Fashion Fish is very easy to reach from Zurich by train and offers premium labels such as Bally, Lacoste, Guess, Diesel, Nike, Timberland and much more.
I arrived with a lovely bunch of other bloggers, and we were warmly greeted by stylist Clifford Lilley and photographer Amanda Nicolic, who offered us helpful advice on how to look good in front of the camera. After drinks and a guided tour through the center, we got a 500 CHF voucher to shop a look.
It was quite a crazy experience, and I felt like a participant of the TV show Shopping Queen. Because the time was limited and I was keen to find something that I loved, I felt under pressure. After all, you don't get so much money to spend in one go every day. It was a lof of fun to see all bloggers shop, ask those likeminded but all very different people for their opinion and see what treasures they found.
But when I spotted the gorgeous pink Bally shoes, the first shoes I own from the luxury label, all doubts vanished, and I was inspired to style an elegant evening look. Shortly after I bought the shoes, I found the perfect coat and dress to go with them at Hallhuber. I love the simple elegance of the look and think the coat has a slight Asian touch, especially combined with my hair cut.
After a touch-up, it was time to show our purchases in the pictures taken by Amanda. Since she is such a cheerful person, I instantly felt very comfortable in front of her camera and the shooting was a fabulous end to an exciting day. Thank you so much for having us Fashion Fish, I can't wait to be back (Maybe one Bally item isn't enough in my life…).
