The Monday Piece - The Clothes Show Live 2013

This week's Monday Piece is on The Clothes Show Live 2013. On Saturday i was invited to the Clothes Show Live, i'd heard so much about it over the years but had never been before so didn't really know what to expect. It's located at the NEC in Birmingham - it is absolutely huge! I was slightly overwhelmed at first, i think possibly because i went on my own and underestimated how much there was to see and do, plus it was full of mega excited shoppers! I started by browsing the stalls and having a chat with some of the sellers, everywhere you turn there's more to see, and there's so much variety too. The beauty deals were so good, with big name brands like Ciate, Models Own and Bare Minerals offering fantastic discounts and goody bags, as well as lots of opportunities for make up and hair tutorials. There were lots of clothes stalls selling a variety of styles, and some up and coming fashion brands there too like Bill and Mar and Mr Gugu & Miss Go, who make awesome, unique printed pieces - again there's so many bargains to be had as most of the stock is reduced or has a special price!

After i'd had a browse i watched the fashion show at the Alcatel onetouch Fashion Theatre, hosted by Henry Holland. The show was incredible and had a theme inspired by 'a weekend in the country'. There were 7 changes of scene, lots of different looks and outfits, as well as dance performances throughout - it was a real highlight of the whole event. As well as the Fashion Theatre there's other catwalks and a style studio too. The atmosophere throughout the day was electric, as the show is celebrating its 25th anniversary there was definitely an exciting feel to the day!
I recommend palnning your trip before you go so you can get the most out it, it's fairly easy to get distracted and lost because there's so much there and it'd be a shame to miss anything!
