If you’re a fashion lover in Liverpool (so basically everyone then yeh?) then you know that a Chic Networking event is something to mark in your diaries – your Scouse Bird diaries of course. In recent years, Chic Networking have been putting on fashion shows which have gotten bigger and better each time and there’s another one in just a couple of weeks time which has done just that. No longer can we even call it the ‘Chic Networking Fashion Show’ as it’s now evolved into the North West Fashion Festival and has upped sticks and moved to a bigger home – The Palmhouse in Sefton Park.
Local designers set to take their collections to the runway are:
Mark Melia – My absolute favourite, he can make you anything for any occasion and always ensures you’re unique.
Mode Mwah – Some of the most elaborate designer swimwear I’ve ever had and her dresses are show stopping.
Lola Loves – Chic and classic, she’s even brought a collection out for River Island
KU Spendlove – One Liverpool designer I’ve not yet been to but she’s definitely on my ‘want/need’ (same thing) list so I’ll be eagle eyeing for what to add to my winter wardrobe.
Francesca Couture – Dresses for prinnies, enough said.
Ben Mak – High end haute couture, not to be missed as he always puts on an amazing show.
Dressing room – She sources the most amazing one off dresses from Paris so you’ll always stand out in a crowd whilst also designing her own gorgeous pieces.
The owner of Chic Networking, Lauren Greene, has confirmed that there’ll be an array of celebrities strutting about on the day but she’s refusing to tell me who, the little tease. She gurantees that it’s people who are in the public eye right now with a reputation for loving fashion – this event is where the next trends are going to be set.
As well as critiquing the latest collections and getting your Anna Wintour on courtside at the catwalk there’ll be a beauty tent and a masterclass tent where you can attend fashion seminars etc, DJ’s, local bars and restaurants showcasing samples (samples – read between the lines here) of their best food and drink AND for the budding models out there you can even enter the NWFF modelling competition with a top prize worth £50,000 including a modelling agency contract and actual working campaigns.
Once again this is a show not to be missed. You can see here my images from the last show.
Tickets are availible from Eventbrite and are price at £10 for a normal ticket and £25 for a VIP ticket.
See you there!
