Mary-Portas-shopping-event-clarks.pngEver fancied having a chinwag and a cocktail with retail guru Mary Portas? If so, you could be in for a treat this London Fashion Week (17th - 21st February), as Mary will be making an appearance at Clarks' Oxford Street branch to launch her new spring/summer 2012 collaboration with the celebrated shoe brand.

If the autumn/winter collection was anything to go by we're sure to be in for another fabulous combination of style and wearability with the new range, which includes some of the pieces pictured above. Bleached-out whites and lemon yellows predominate, along with neon accents, mirrored heels and the season's hottest pattern trend: snake-effect leather. All the key shapes of the season are represented here, including the wedge, the essential sandal, the Mary Jane and the party shoe.

Visitors to the event will get to meet Mary, enjoy a free 'Bloody Mary' cocktail and enter in to a lucky dip with the chance to win free pairs of shoes from the collection. Those who don't win a pair will not go away empty-handed, however, as organisers have ensured there'll be runners-up prizes for special discounts to spend on the collection for every shopper.

Sounds like fun? Come along on Tues 21st Feb from 6-9pm and check out the collection. The Shoewawa team will also be in attendance as we're as excited about the new shoes as you are! The venue is Clarks, 260 Oxford Street, London, W1C 1DN. See you there!
