BIRMINGHAM INTERNATIONAL FASHION WEEK
Fashion week season is here.
Unfortunately, Birmingham gets a little lost in the world fashion scene; we have a few events here and there, but you’re highly unlikely to catch Karlie Kloss, Cara Delevingne and Kendall Jenner strutting their stuff on the runway, nonetheless, I try to support Birmingham’s evolving fashion culture where I can. You may recall I've been working as Birmingham International FashionWeek’s blogger ambassador over on their website in the lead up to Birmingham International Fashion Week, which took place over 2 days this weekend – 4th & 5th September – at the prestigious Burlington Hotel. I attended their first show on Friday and thought I would share just a few of the highlights from the night.
On arrival we were treated to a glass of Prosecco and handed our heaving goody bag before heading to the fashion lounge and showroom where I took the opportunity to have a good old catch up with Ruth from SheWoreChic (we both turned up in knee-high boots) and network with other fashion enthusiasts. The presenter and host for the evening was celebrity stylist and model, Lewis Duncan-Weedon, who introduced collections from the various international fashion designers - which included Arabel Manners, Segrid Allen, Mary Hunter, MALIHA and Green Embassy - and the speaker sessions by fashion brand strategist, Fabian Hirose, and blogger/vlogger, Becky Sheeran, from TalkBeckyTalk; both gave very thought-provoking and inspirational talks about different aspects of the fashion industry. We were also treated to a Make Up London Academy master-class about contouring – I now ‘think’ I know how to get those coveted cheek bones and jaw line we ladies love!
