Birmingham's Fashion Icon. The Bull Part 1

The Bull at the Bullring Fashiob

This month will be focused on Birmingham as a fashion destination. I'm very busy writing up the blog post for the Birmingham International Fashion Week (end), so in the meantime, I'd like to introduce you to Birmingham's fashion model No 1: the Bull at the Bullring. Enjoy and feel free to leave me a comment in the section below the post.

The Bull at the main gateway to the Bullring in Rotunda Square is not only the UK's largest animal statute and the city's mascot; to me, ‘he’ is also the secret fashion icon of the West Midlands. Whether ‘naked’ or ‘dressed’ the Bull always makes an impression.

This picture was taken last summer (2013) and shows the Bull in his own little flower garden. The year before he supported Team GB.

Ever since its introduction in September 2003 by designer Laurence Broderick, the Bull has been known for having his own wardrobe filled with designer clothes and handmade garments. From woolly jumpers to stylish leather jackets he has sported a number of outfits, which have all been very popular with visitors. Whenever I go shopping at the Bullring, there are always people posing and taking photographs with him. Everyone wants a picture with a famous fashion icon!

 I'm wearing:

T-shirt: Zara T-shirt (season 2009/2010)
Pencil skirt: Mango (season 2011/2012 via ASOS)
Ballerinas: New Look £16 (season 2008/2009)

For someone, who is 2.2. meters high, 4.5 meters long and weights six and a half tonnes, it must be a nightmare to go shopping. I can totally understand that the bull has his own personal designer, but I still find it very mysterious how he gets dressed in the middle of Birmingham's busy city centre. Time for me to get some research done to find out. If you'd like to find out who's behind the bull's wardrobe, please read on in my second part of Birmingham's Fashion Icon The Bull.

Thanks so much for reading and till next time,
