Sunday evening was party time as MCR Fashion Industry held their Rethink Pink event in the glamorous surroundings of Menagerie Restaurant in Manchester. As the name suggests, the theme of the evening was pink and there were towers of pink cupcakes and pink cocktails to greet guests on arrival. The night was a double celebration, as the event was also a chance for MCR Fashion Industry to celebrate their third birthday.
We took our seats at a table right beside the catwalk, which gave us a great view of the entertainment and fashion shows throughout the evening. I wore a dress from Boohoo, I always love their clothes which are both stylish and affordable. We enjoyed live music as we perused the menu, which consisted of several tempting choices.
Our starters of blackened chicken tacos with spicy mayo, caramelised halloumi with cauliflower purée and duck croquettes with honey and truffle were all delicious and I liked the idea of a selection of small plates to share. The dishes were all well presented and they tasted as good as they looked, with delicate flavours.
I ordered the truffle ravioli for my main course, the sauce was rich and creamy and the intense truffle flavour worked well within the freshly made ravioli. My partner had the 8oz flat iron steak with fries and chimichurri sauce which was cooked to perfection.
There were spectacular dance performances throughout dinner and a live music set before the SS17 fashion shows from brands such as CC Couture and The Couture Club, which included evening wear and swimwear. There were also beauty showcases from Regis Hair and Charlotte Tilbury during the night.
It was such a fun evening and the food, music, dance and fashion was the perfect combination. Thanks to the MCR Fashion Industry team and Menagerie for an amazing party.
