on the 21st of May. This was an unbelievable opportunity for us as a group and we jumped at the chance to take part.
Organised by Amanda Moss PR, it was an event not to missed. We had heard great things about Amanda before going to Manchester and we knew it would be a very well run and polished event. Amanda has many, many years experience as a PR guru and is the mastermind behind events such as the Fashion and Beauty Awards (the FAB awards), Manchester and Liverpool Fashion weeks and the Liverpool and Manchester Lifestyle Awards. She is also Editor and creator of Lifestyle Magazine (which we were featured in also!).
While we were in the middle of fittings, standing there in various states of undress/complete nakedness, the host for the evening, the outrageously funny (and honest!) Antonella The Uncensored Reviewer arrived! It turned out that she was there to be fitted for a piece of lingerie that she was going to model on the catwalk too!
(Note* We are all huge fans of Auntie Nelly at Celtic Curves, but meeting her for the first time in only knickers, trying to cover the bit of modesty I had left while I got the best hug, was not how I thought it would go! But it’s one of those moments I won’t forget!)
It was a very Mad Max/warrior kind of vibe with the hair and we absolutely loved the concept. Hair was styled by the very talented stylists from Laura Taylor hairdressing .
from Emmaculate Studio Hair and Makeup.
Monteith. Practice makes perfect and she helped us warm up to be show-ready! The stage was set and it was almost show time.
We got into our first outfits and nervously waited.
The running order was:
6pm call time with Haze, Kita May Designs, Phoenix del Barrio, Kiki Riki and then
we were up modelling for Sidhu Fashions. The clothes were unique and beautiful, and the fit
was unreal! It’s hard to find well-fitting and funky plus size clothing, but Sidhu has it all!
Next up was Immanuel clothing (a Dublin-based designer!), then Perfect 4 U lingerie, who we were modelling for, Flency Rose, Pearl Designs Fashions, Apparel 32, Boux Avenue, Gogairy hand painted leathers and closing the show was Tazlima 4 Stitch.
We waited patiently while Immanuel Clothing models rocked the catwalk…. And then it was out turn…
We were all very nervous at the thoughts of modelling lingerie on the catwalk for the first time at
such a huge event, but the ladies who own the boutique were absolutely amazing. They were
even able to size us just by looking at us, and outfit after outfit fitted like a dream. We felt
sexy, beautiful and just like a million dollars! The outfits mostly consisted of body suits and
baby dolls and the range of colours and sizes were vast. Every body is catered for as they go
up to a size 32!
