So..we have 10 days to go before the this years launch of The Clothes Show Live 2013, which celebrates a successful 25 years of British fashion and beauty! Since as we’re on the countdown and I enjoy the number 10 to begin again decent countdown, I figured it was an apt time to get you all juiced and excited for the event!
As you all know, I’m going to be there EVERY DAY this year and I intend to cover every inch of the magic for you right from the event itself. Of course, it will be from my very own glamourous point f view, but I will be watching, loving, learning and delighting in all things beauty and fashion. From shows to events to what YOUR WEARING, what I’M WEARING, backstage interviews, celebs and everything in between…i’ll have it all delivered right to your phone, ipad, laptop or nearest computer screen in a jiffy!
I hope you’ve all bought your tickets, as it’s going to be a seriously glamourous affair and an event that caters to EVERYONE! Excited and want to come?
Well go grab your tickets now!
(Oh and to those of you who are messaging me to tell me that you are going to the event! I cannot WAIT to meet you! Dress to impress now! *Wiggle-wink*)
Okay, so I thought i’d give you the run down of some of the things you could be delighting in, if you were to step into this years world of British Fashion and Beauty at The Clothes Show Live.
If you’re the type of darling who adores a bit of catwalk, you can be mesmerized by the amazing catwalk shows on offer, running throughout the day every day! Why not venture to the Alcatel onetouch fashion theatre!
The theme this year is…
Oh yes darlings! ‘A weekend in the country…’
Very English. Very Proper. Very FUN! Also very much inspired by Cliveden house! A deliciously divine 5* estate! So expect a champagne, tweed and roses shindig. 🙂 *Air kiss-Air Kiss-Spiff-Spoff-Tatler-Darling*
If you love a catwalk show then you can’t get any better than at The Clothes Show live. If you have never been to one before, know that the atmosphere will be ALIVE. It will have you shimmi-ing in a diamond dripped frenzy of delight. Not to mention the LIVE music acts that also venture down the runway to sing you a little celebration and keep you in the mood! Union J are one of the bands taking a stance at The Clothes Show live this year! Oh yes girls….I suggest you bring your designer fans as an accessory to flutter your temperatures back down to sanity.
For the singletons or any of those who are a fan of all things Cupid! ‘TAKE ME OUT LIVE’ will be at The Clothes Show this year! So whilst you shop for your latest designer/highstreet goodies, you can watch good old sports take a chance at love, in good old ‘No likey- No lighty’ style!
Now, I know you hear a lot of people cheering on fashion. It is The Clothes show afterall! However please do not forget, and how could you forget that there will also be a very glamourous BEAUTY HALL for all those like moi, who find a bit of glitter sprinkle and luxury lippy DIVINE! The ‘Beauty Hall’ will be filled with experts, speakers, celebrities, music acts and press..all there to help you enjoy the upcoming trends and also their very current lines! Yes, you get to be right there in the action. There will be makeovers, tricks of the trade, celebrity brands and a whole lot of surprises instore…Be there and be involved. I certainly will be tottering around the Beauty Hall as of course it is going to me one of my favourite bits of the event. (Hellooo beauty range out next year. 🙂 )
Clothes Show TV will be there!
You’ve all seen the snippets from the ‘Bloggers Breakfast’ that I attended at the Sanderson. Well yes! You get to watch live segments of the show being filmed right before your very eyes, with star interviews, experts and of course blogger interviews, all in The Clothes Show TV studio.
They’ll also be (and this is NEW to the Clothes Show this year) a Social Shed, where YOU can share, update and post YOUR OWN Clothes Show experience right from the event itself! And as if that wasn’t great enough! But…(and for all of you who adore a bit of ‘look at me..’ the BEST POSTS will be zapped straight onto the large INTERACTIVE wall at the event. Meaning that everyone could see your Tweet, post, update or picture up on the BIG SCREEN and yes..at the biggest fashion event of the year!
For those of you who fancy a shot at a career in modelling. Select model management will be there, as always..scouting young talent for their fresh new books! That’s what great about The Clothes Show, because you can actually go and get discovered! Lots of model scouts and models themselves venture to the event to see and be seen! When I used to go as a young girl on school trips, two 3 of my friends, Leo, Fiona and Liz, were scouted EVERY TIME they went. Leo (who at the time was dating the infamous Kweku Adoboli, the year above me in school) was actually stopped 6 times. Always remember that you never know you you could meet at this show!
Now we all adore a little ‘A List treatment. So this year why not take a trip to the ‘Paparazzi Pen.’ #pappen
Yep, you can get photographed and enjoy the full paparazzi experience with your favourite celebs who will all be venturing down for a bit of *pose-pose-snap.* It makes the perfect profile picture and is certainly something you can boast about for years afterward! 🙂
Plus, THX (Total Hair Experts) are situated right NEXT TO the Pap pen, meaning that before your celebrity close up, you can be treated to a glamourous hair makeover, so not only do you look your best, but you can give them that ‘Look at me’ with confidence! (I am using the THX curling tong that I got from the Bloggers Breakfast and let me tell you it is AMAZING. My hair has never been better. I’ve had people stop me in the street and tell me how much better my hair now looks! )
Now, the event isn’t just for the mainstream dolls. There is a whole Vintage Ave, for you to explore, filled with quirky designers and old flavours from the past. In fact there’s even a ‘Customisation Station’ where you can revamp tired old items and give them a new lease of life! Sounds great to me! Maybe I can get get myself revamped in the process! 🙂
Honestly there is far too much going on for me to include in one blog, so as the days get closer I will tear open a little bit more of my bag of surprises for you!
However, I will leave you with a station of the event that is close to my heart!
YES! THE BLOGGERS BAR!
This year (and it’s all very new) there will be a BLOGGERS BAR set up at The Clothes Show live. It’s for Blogging Royalty only, (which is moi 😉 ) and they are all equipped with VIP Passes ready to report the goings on of the deliciously glamourous event. So yeah, YOU get to watch the best bloggers in town…the ‘cream of the crop,’ the ‘ooh’s ‘ that make the ‘laa’ so magical, deliver and report their experience live to readers GLOBALLY and right before your very eyes. (I like to think that we’re a new brand of celeb. 🙂 But I would say that wouldn’t I!) This is how huge the show is this year! Everyone in the entire world can and will be involved and right from the Blogger Bars!
I hope you’re all excited and I really do hope to see you all there. I’m going to be in my rather fashionable glad rags, (which is always terrifying at it’s best) and i’m going to be covering every inch of the magic for you! LIVE!
I’m there every day so don’t be afraid to come say ‘Hello,’ whether it be for a cuddle, a wink, to be pointed in the right glitzy direction, to be featured in the blog, for a piccie or just for good old Paris Hilton gossip. 😉 BBF much!
See you there!
