Mulberry at Large

Wednesday, 13 August 2014

In all honesty I'm not much of a festival goer. My experience at Glastonbury '97 was enough to put me off festivals for good, but when I was asked by Mulberry to be their 'Mulberry at Large' during this years Wilderness festival I had to respond with a big fat yes. 

While Cara Delevinge hosted a Mulberry picnic inside the Walled Garden of Lord and Lady Rotherwick's Cornbury Estate, my job was to hunt out the most fashionable festival goers and style them with one of 6 beautiful red Mulberry bags. As you can see, it wasn't a difficult job. There were plenty of gorgeous ladies wearing some fabulous ensembles, who were more than happy to pose for the camera with their choice of bag. 

Between style shots I was able to get stuck into some hands on creativity at the Mulberry Loves Craft tent. Beautifully decorated with gold heart and handbag shaped branded balloons amidst stacked hay bale seating, it was filled with tables equipped with all the tools necessary to create your very own Mulberry leather cuff. You could even personalise by hand stamping your initials or choice of cute little symbols. What a treat!

As for my fear of festivals, I think the Wilderness experience has cured me. The chilled family vibe, friendly atmosphere, and beautiful setting of the Oxfordshire Cotswold countryside was enough to convince me that not every festival has to be a mud soaked catastrophe. Plus the sun made a lengthy appearance which makes all the difference.
