This year's Clothes Show Live was bigger and better than ever!
Over 400 fashion & beauty brands were selling exclusively discounted products to 250,000 fashion hungry shoppers. The event was split into different areas and categories.
The Susuki Fashion Theatre located in the red zone of hall 9 &10 showcased a 45 minute performance of dancers and models with designer Henry Holland and stylist Grace Woodward as the hosts. Special guest appearance by Daisy Lowe happened on the first day of the event, Friday 7th December. Paul Mitchell created the hair styles for the catwalk & Benefit provided the make up for the models. On Monday JLS performed in front of hundreds of screaming fans!
The Fashion Fix area located in halls 7 & 8 is where you have your pictures taken with your favourite celebrities in the paparazzi pen, while Capital FM play the latest tunes to keep you entertained.
Fiorelli was located in the Vision Village where you could pick up great deals from your favourite fashion brands and unique independant labels. The Diet Coke catwalk in association with Cosmopolitan magazine showed the new talent from contributing Colleges and Universities.
Guilty pleasure! When you needed a sit down and a drink the Vision Village hosted the juice lounge in association with Heat magazine & Heat radio. The perfect place to recharge and we caught Heat's editor Lucy Speed getting rather cosy with two male models!
The beauty hall style studio had hair and beauty demonstrations by celebrity stylists Paul Mitchell, Lee Stafford, Errol Douglas & Leo Bancroft from ITV's This Morning.
The Style Boutique hosted the luxury Independant labels and we found this stunning feather collection by designer Ruth Milliam.
Britain & Ireland's Next Top Models were on the catwalk modelling the best of high street fashion. They were all so professional and still looked amazing even after the 8th show of the day! The catwalk show took place every 30mins and showed the latest must have's from Warehouse, New Look, Designers at Debenhams, Oasis & Miss Selfridge. What is your favourite collection from the high street?
If you fancied yourself as a model Select model agency scouts were out on force and finding the model faces of the future. If you think you have what it takes, the model master class is where you learnt how to walk like a model. It involved walking with a book on top of your head and trying to keep it there until you finished the catwalk!
Designers at Debenhams
Miss Selfridge, do you prefer the vamp diva or the girly girl style?
This year Peter Andre made an appearance to launch his clothing line along with Amy Childs and Gemma Collins from The Only Way is Essex.
Gemma Collins came onto the Fiorelli stand to have a look at our bags and was so excited as she used to have "loads of Fiorelli bags!"

Katie Price & Bodyguards
Katie Price came to have a shop one evening, although with all these body guards and fans, we don't think she managed to get much shopping done...
Fiorelli's lovely sales manager Pandora who is wearing the 'Hope' bag bumped into Henry Holland who had been presenting the catwalk show with Grace Woodward.

Fiorelli has partnered with Cancer Research UK as part of our 25th birthday celebrations. We aim to reach our goal of £100,000 for the amazing charity, but we need your help. We bought the 'Hope' bag to the Clothes Show and it flew off of the shelves! A donation from every sale of the bag will help us to reach our target for Cancer Research UK. The Fiorelli team would like to say a massive thank you to all who have bought the 'Hope' bag so far & we are thrilled that everyone loves the shape and design. We still have a long way to go to reach our target so please share the 'Hope' story.
... The After Party. After a great event everyone who put all the hard work and effort into making it happen, joined together at Birmingham's Gatecrasher for the official Clothes Show after party! Jodie Harsh DJ and everyone put their new dresses, shoes & handbags on & danced the night away!
