Celebration of Style event

Last weekend a huge fashion event was held in Liverpool across 3 days featuring different talks, exhibitions and a fashion show. I visited the seminars which were part of the Influence of Style event at the Titanic hotel, where big names from the industry gave talks about working in fashion etc. People such as, Justine Mills, the founder of Cricket boutique in Liverpool, Lorraine McCulloch, stylist, buyers from Matalan and a digital expert from Matthew Williamson. The talks were very influential as I had a chance to gain an insight into what a role in the fashion industry is really like and how these people got there. As well as the talks there were little stalls on such as Benefit, free makeovers, Nails inc, manicures, Matalan talent team, Andrew Collinge academy, free hair styles and many more.

Later that night the Cricket Fashion show was held at the Cunard building, the building itself was full of character making it an lovely setting for the show. I actually helped out backstage at the fashion show which was an amazing experience but unfortunately I didn't get to watch the show myself. The clothes that the models were wearing were amazing, everything from Givenchy to Celine, this was probably the closest I'll get to these designers clothing for a long time! At the end of the show, Kelli Leigh performed which we rushed out to watch, and at this point I spotted Rosie Fortescue and Chloe Green on the front row! Overall the show was amazing and it was a fantastic event to celebrate the style in Liverpool, I can't wait for next year!
