Back in secondary school, I picked Textiles as one of my GCSE options. Granted, all I can really remember is how to sew a button onto a shirt, one thing I do remember is our day out to the Clothes Show.
The Clothes Show was pretty much always held in the NEC Birmingham. I remember spending the days before trying to pick out something stylish to wear, but back in the days when I lived in jeans and New Look slogan tees and Sketchers, well, stylish didn’t exactly come to mind. We all piled into a mini-bus early in the morning and headed to Birmingham.
The entire convention space was full of runways, catwalks, models, make-up brands set up doing demos, nail bars with deals on for the day, I remember a crimping station and girls being cornered in a stall to have head shots taken in a bid for being discovered on the day. I remember everything being very pink and after perusing a nail stall and getting chatting with the sales girl, she had me convinced she would do my nails for free…only when I sat down she did one nail and sent me on my way.
My how things have changed over the years!
The Clothes Show has restyled itself as the British Style Collective. With a city wide style take over planned across the city, Liverpool will play host this year to a show that’s going to set your selfie on fire!
The Exhibition centre down at the Echo Arena will play host to the shopping hall, where shopping till you drop is not an option, it is inevitable. From top hughstreet brands to Insta-famous small business, there will be something you can’t go home without. Must admit, I’m excited about the selfie wall and the panel of fellow bloggers who will be giving talks throughout the day.
A quick jaunt across town, or a trip on the free fashion bus takes you to St Georges Hall, one of our cites prettiest halls. With celeb Q&A session, high end fashion shows, demonstrations from luxury brands and designer showrooms to ogle over! If ever your fashion-heart needed a reason to sing, the BSC has the song sheet.
I can’t wait to head on down and see it all for myself! I might not be sporting my jeans and Sketchers, but I’m happy to twirl around in a pretty dress, grab some bubbles from the Bubble Bar and celebrate the most stylish city I know!
