Liverpool Fashion Week runs from the 15th – 20th October and delivers a total of 50 fashion shows across some of Liverpool’s most prestigious venues, including Leo Casino, Capital Building, The Maritime Museum on Albert Dock and the stunning Hilton Hotel at Liverpool One. The 50 shows are a tribute to 50 years of the Beatles, another amazing success story from the city. These venues are seeing many great local designers and models take part in catwalk shows across the 6 nights, with entertainment provided from a host of the UK and Ireland’s most up and coming music stars. There was also a special appearance from 80’s popstar and friend of Simon Cowell, Sinitta who opened the show on Monday night.
Frontline Events said “This is a great opportunity to showcase the amount of talent we have here in the Northwest. It’s the biggest fashion event of the year in the North of England and there’s so much behind the scenes work and preparation that goes into it, more than you can ever imagine watching the finished product you see on stage. The organisers have done such an amazing job”. Gillian O’Brien of Frontline Events adds “I love anything and everything to do with fashion but never get the time or opportunity to go and watch live shows in action. To have this exciting event so close is a brilliant chance for me to experience not only the fashion but the amazing atmosphere of an event like this. I am of course hoping to spot some famous faces in the crowd aswell, haha”.
With Frontline Events themselves always promoting, encouraging and mentoring young entrepreneurs in their own industry, it’s no surprise to see them so supportive of the new young talent Liverpool Fashion Week is showcasing. “It’s great for the all the new designers here to have such media interest, both locally and internationally. From radio to TV, national papers to high fashion glossy mags, I’m sure the new talent will get some well-deserved mentions across the country. A good friend of mine from Dublin, Keith Cullen, is also performing on Friday so I’m delighted for all the new artists there just like him getting some recognition for all their hard work to date aswell”.
As the week draws to a close at the Hilton on Saturday, the closing event looks set to be even more exciting, with more live entertainment and an after party sure to be jam-packed with some of Liverpool’s most famous faces. A fantastic end to an equally fantastic week of fashion.
