Zuso launch

Tonight I was invited to go to the launch of Zuso, an online women's clothes boutique set up by two high school friends. The name Zuso comes from the Greek god Zeus, hinting at its masculine roots, as both founders are male. The owners state: “Our mission is to give girls a fresh new bold direction of clothing; we are hand-selecting brands from across the globe to create a new alternative cool fashion. The Zuso Girl is a smart well-kept independent woman, with a bit of bite.”

As soon as I entered the venue at The Old Blind School on Hardman Street, I knew it was going to be a fun event. I was immediately handed a goody bag and shown to the cocktail table, which were provided by The Old Blind School and tasted amazing. I also loved the candy wagon, with free sweets to pick at as we were looking at the clothes and socialising.

I had a look at some of the clothes that Zuso stocks, and was extremely impressed. The brand is aimed at younger women with a smart and contemporary style, stocking unique brands such as Lavish Alice (of which I fell in love with this dress), Ginger Fizz, Girls On Film and Ono Uno.

One of the main reasons that I was looking forward to this event was to check out The Old Blind School. It is a new gastro pub/restaurant that was previously a school for blind children and has always looked so interesting when I passed it. And I wasn't disappointed - the old school has been filled with some stunning decor, with lots of exposed light bulbs and brick work. The high ceilings and old architecture add to the charm of the building - I will definitely be going back soon to check out the food in the restaurant.

It was the perfect venue for such a cool up-and-coming brand!

Zuso offer free UK delivery on all orders, but the best part is, if you are in the Liverpool area and order before 4pm, your clothes will be delivered the same day! If that's not great service, I don't know what is. 

About halfway through the event, the models took to the floor to show off some of Zuso's new collection.

The A/W collection is unique and exciting, and worth looking at if you want to find something special. The prices are fairly expensive, but the clothes are such good quality and unlike anything you could get elsewhere on the high street.

Ellie Phillips, the TV and Juice FM radio presenter, was the host for the night, and wore a gorgeous jacket from Zuso's collection.

The models looked gorgeous - I was in awe of how perfect their make-up looked!

Everyone at the event seemed so glamorous, whilst I was trying my hardest not to spill my cocktail on anything or stuff my face with too many cupcakes...

...But I did have a great time and enjoyed learning about a new brand and catching up with a couple of people. I would like to thank Chic PR, Zuso and The Old Blind School for inviting me!
Do more than just exist.
