Liverpool Fashion Week 2011 - Part 1
Report and photos on this page by Patrick Trollope.

WITH 5 nights, 40 catwalk shows and 4 of the trendiest venues in Liverpool, it could only be Liverpool Fashion Week. The trendiest fashion shows in the North West for 2011 were set on track by a fantastic night in the Hard Day’s Night Hotel on 18 October 2011. Set in the iconic Beatles themed hotel, the event was hosted by the Hollyoaks star, Jennifer Metcalfe. It was not just the adults who showed off their talent on the first night, as children took to the stage to show off designer outfits. After the first nights shows, the models and audience then headed over to the After Party, at the exclusive celeb hang out Kingdom Liverpool, hosted by Red Dwarf/Coronation Street star, Craig Charles!  What a fantastic start, but it was to get better… On the following night the next major shows took place in the MODO. Both nights also had freshest live entertainment who keep the action moving as the models changed.
