Liverpool Fashion Week is certainly the most important Fashion event in North West UK, which is proving to be a real competition to the far more established London Fashion Week, attracting worldwide attention and established/new talent designers to showcase their collection. The credit for this successful event goes to the organiser, Amanda Moss and her crew; who once again organised and delivered, four amazing shows, with everything planned to perfection down to the last detail.
The second evening of the show at the Liner Hotel, was based on "New talent", emerging designers and started off with the Childsplay Clothing collection - trendy and contemporary designs with studs and sparkling details, showcased by talented children who also wowed the audience with a little show. Karen Corson presented a unique coat collection embellished with colourful fabric details, which were stunning. Such a good start to the evening, was sustained by the fun, colourful and cute collection of Rachael Tsai – the models resembled the image of Barbie dolls on the catwalk, followed by the gothic inspired collection of Stuart Bache – this time the gentleman took over the stage with cutting edge designs, which I most admired. Another astonishing collection that surprised the audience was Tayamika, with African inspired bold prints and eccentric colours that could not be missed. The real turnaround was the final show of the evening, a hot and sexy lingerie collection – Amentium, which left little to the imagination.
The closing night of the fashion week was held at the Liverpool Marina, another excellent evening which impressed everybody with established designers/boutiques such as Rule One London, Spoilt Boutique, Pandorella, Friperie and Niche. The evening kicked off with the children show and the Childsplay Clothing collection followed by Rule One London – bohemian inspired designs - a trend for this season. "Spoilt Boutique" was next, with beautiful and sophisticated thigh high slit evening dresses with lace details; another child's presentation followed; showcasing Pandorella colourful designs with a magical, fairy-tale inspiration. Friperie collection was also very interesting and attractive – further bohemian inspired colourful designs, embellished with gold details, fringe and fur. The closing show was the most spectacular with a superb bridal collection by Niche, giving the final touch at the end of this very successful week. I must congratulate the hair and make-up team for their amazing work throughout both evenings, but especially on the 'finale' which were stunning and perfectly coordinated with the outfits.
I am thrilled to have been able to attend two evenings of the Liverpool Fashion Week and I feel as the show is growing stronger every year, giving everyone within the fashion industry the opportunity to show their capability and progress with more confidence in their career; a huge thank you goes to the founder of the event, Amanda Moss, for coordinating so efficiently the running of the show making it joyful, pleasant, interesting and exciting for everyone attending.
