Last week I took a glamorous and unusual trip to the Swiss outlet, Fashion Fish, located in Schönenwerd (canton Solothurn, about 45 min away from Zurich). I took part in a give-away on a blog in hopes of winning a gift card to shop in the outlet, but I had no idea that the lucky winners would have the chance to drive there in a limousine with prominent Swiss figures! I could not believe my eyes when I saw a pink limo arriving to the main station in Zurich with Clifford Lilley (fashion stylist) and Claudia Lässer (tv moderator) to pick us up! On the way to the outlet all the participants of the event (fashion and beauty bloggers) and I drank some champagne and had a nice chat.
At the Fashion Fish outlet we had 1,5 hours to create a fall outfit with the motto “fall with colors,” then the jury picked the best one. I did not win the contest, but I had so much fun there with the girls! It usually takes me a while to decide which clothes to buy, so this was a challenging task for me. I finally picked out very nice classy boots and a silk scarf from the Swiss label Navyboot, and a colorful woolen sweater from Marc’O Polo. I was satisfied with my choice, I love these boots and have worn them several times already.
I like the concept of outlets in general, and to tell the truth, I am a big fashion outlet goer! I think that classic pieces in one’s wardrobe don’t necessarily have to be from the latest collection. By shopping in outlets, I get my favorite high quality labels and a good bargain at the same time.The Fashion Fish outlet, where I frequently shop, is quite close to Zurich and hosts many famous designer stores! Among my top favourite are: Swiss shoes and accessories labels Navyboot and Bally, the world famous Lacoste, Guess, Gant, Hugo Boss, Diesel and Bogner. There are also some makeup, beauty, liqueur and textiles stores.
Here is a cool video from the event:
