On Thursday I travelled down to London to attend The Clothes Show Bloggers Breakfast. Located in the Penthouse of The Sanderson, it was a great place to meet everyone, chat about the show and have some breakfast! The Clothes Show is celebrating its 25th Birthday, so there's a huge buzz this year and there's so much going on. The Clothes Show takes place each year, at the NEC in Birmingham, it's a massive event and accessible to everyone as anyone can buy tickets. This years dates are the 6th to the 10th of December.
There are catwalks showcasing high street and designer fashion, as well as collections from colleges and universities across the UK. The show also features special celebrity guests and performaces, a huge shopping area for both fashion and beauty, and educational programmes. The Clothes Show TV will be around too, offering exclusive behind the scenes action, style advice and make up and hair tutorials.
At the breakfast we met some awesome, inspirational people from the fashion world. Henry Holland will be at the show everyday presenting on the Alcatel One Touch fashion theatre, in association with Company Magazine. Henry was so charming and knowledgeable, he looked super sharp in a red fisherman knit jumper, striped blue shirt, jeans and brogues. It was great to hear what he thinks about the show and what to expect from the fashion theatre! Sasha Wilkins from the multi-award winning blog Liberty London Girl was on hand to give us all tips about the show, one of them being that wearing flats is a must due to lots of walking and dashing around! It was so inspiring chatting to Sasha, and her no nonsense approach to fashion and blogging was really refreshing. We also met Jade Thompson who is 'the face' of The Clothes Show 2013 - Jade won BINTM in 2011 and looked stunning wearing high waisted trousers, a cropped top and the cutest Pom Pom hat. Jade will be at the show too, modelling and looking beautiful!
We were kindly treated to an Alcatel One Touch star mobile phone, so I'll be using that at the show to tweet throughout the day, The Clothes Show is bigger than ever, and it all looks and sounds so exciting!
