Fashion, catwalk and
entertainment for fashion stars of tomorrow
THE Organisers of the North West
Fashion Festival 2016 are turning the tables by giving the fashionistas of
tomorrow their own platform with a special day to focus on style for youngsters.
The 2 day fashion extravaganza takes place over Saturday, 22 October and Sunday,
23 October 2016, at the stunning St George's Hall Liverpool; the ultimate venue
to showcase all that is glamorous and sophisticated from across the region.
This is the 3rd year of the North West Fashion Festival, which grows year on
year and is now regarded one of the region's biggest fashion and beauty events.
New for 2016, organisers have added a 2nd day
to the event, ensuring there is a huge focus on fashion for youngsters, catwalk
shows, and family entertainment throughout the day from 1pm to 7pm.
Last week, it was announced that stars of ITVBe's Real Housewives Of Cheshire,
Tanya Bardsley and Dawn Ward, would be leading the line up of glamorous guests
across the weekend. Organisers are now delighted to announce that Tanya and Dawn
will be joined by their stylish co-star, footballer's wife and fashion designer
Visitors to the show will see Leanne showcase
her childrenswear range Kiss Frogs, which will be modelled on the St George's
Hall catwalk by her very own daughters; Lola aged 5 and 9 year old Lilia. Leanne
commented:- "I'm so excited to be showcasing my latest Kiss Frogs
collection at the North West Fashion Festival. Designing the range has been a
labour of love and I really can't think of anyone better to model the collection
than my girls. I'm thrilled they will be joining me in Liverpool next Sunday to
share what promises to be an exciting day for us all."
Leanne's 13 year old daughter Halle will also be modelling on the catwalk; for
Melanie Louise designer children's wear. Melanie Louise is the hottest 'go
to' brand for stylish fashion for little ones; and it's certainly a big
hit with celebrity mums. So much so, that two more well known faces will be
proudly watching on as their children take to the catwalk to model the latest
collection from Melanie Louise.
Dawn Ward will see her 2 daughters, Aston aged 7 and 9 year old Charlie, strut
their stuff, alongside Sophia, the 5 year old daughter of model Abbey Clancy,
who will also be there at the show on the Sunday.
Sunday's catwalk shows will also feature High
Street brand John Lewis which is launching its new contemporary childrenswear
brand, Margarita Kids. Joining them will be top brand Leigh Taylor, who now have
a concession in Topshop and specialise in matching fashion for style savvy mums
and daughters. Family entertainment will run throughout the day, with Sunday's
stage programme being opened with an energetic dance performance by Liverpool
based MD Productions, who shot to fame on Britain's Got Talent. It'll be another
proud moment for Real Housewives Of Cheshire's Dawn Ward, when older daughter
During the day, 30 enthusiastic followers of
fashion aged between 4 and 16 year old will take to the catwalk after
successfully winning their places at a recent casting. Sunday will also
prove a special day for organiser Lauren Greene, when her 16 month old son
Carter makes his catwalk debut. Lauren Greene, Founder and Director of the North
West Fashion Festival, commented:- "I really cannot wait for this year's
event which, for the 1st time, takes place over 2 days. I created the North West
Fashion Festival in 2014 and I've since become a mum. So there's never been a
better time to expand the show to 2 days and put a real emphasis on children's
fashion; and give tomorrow's fashionistas their very own platform."
Mini festivalgoers can feel part of the fun by visiting the Go Glitter stand, to
have the most magical and glamorous facepainting designs they'll be thrilled to
sport. Across the weekend, visitors can enjoy a weekend of catwalk shows,
shopping and pampering, while they check out the new collections from local
fashion designers and national brands; indulge in a spot of retail therapy;
while trying out the latest beauty treatments. There will also be a
programme of Q&As, panel discussions, demonstrations and masterclasses from
leading fashion and beauty experts.
