Awards Ceremony to Celebrate Midlands Fashion Talent


Midlands Fashion Awards 2015 Independent Catwalk Show A5  FlyerFounder and Managing Director of the Midlands Fashion Awards (MFA), Jenny Eason said: “Previous participants have gained valuable experience and have had considerable success as a result of the MFA, so it’s great that we can extend this opportunity beyond the Midlands, without distracting from the main awards. I’m truly amazed by the creativity and talent of the applicants each year, from the Midlands and beyond, and 2015 is no different.”

The Midlands Fashion Awards will official launch on Friday 7th August with the Independent Designers Catwalk Show at the Hyatt Regency Birmingham. This will be followed by the seventh consecutive Midlands Fashion Awards on Friday 16th October at the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, CBSO Centre, Birmingham.

As always the Midlands Fashion Awards aims to recognize, inspire and promote the wealth of talent within the Midlands, while the Independent Designer Catwalk Show sees designers from across the UK showcase their designs. Demand for which grew as a result of the continued interest from unbelievably talented designers who aren’t eligible to take part in the Midlands Fashion Awards.

As well as an impressive catwalk show and an opportunity to network, guests will have the chance to browse a variety of stalls from the regions best boutiques before taking their seats to the fabulous catwalk show featuring luxury independent fashion brands: Reece Curtis-Walwyn, SANDRAVIEIRA, Elvira & Lee Couture, Anthi G, Boo-Couture, Viola Poni, and Monday Boutique.

Finalists for the Best Accessory Designer of the Year category will also be in attendance, showcasing their designs to guests and a judging panel of industry experts. While finalists in the Best Make-up Artist of the Year and Best Fashion Stylist of the Year categories will assist in the production of the fashion showcase, working alongside the designers to create the final looks for the catwalk. Finalists will be mentored and assessed throughout the process by industry professionals who will go on to choose a winner from each category.
