I arrived at Birmingham New Street and had to make my way to Birmingham International to get to the NEC. I didn't have to worry about getting lost because there were thousands of well dressed 16 year olds leading the way. How do all these teenagers look so nice? I never work make up and wore a band t-shirt with purple corduroy trousers. Maybe I was just a really uncool teenager.
The Clothes Show was full of stalls selling clothes and accessories, plenty of hair and beauty demonstrations going on and the highlight of the day was a live catwalk show hosted by Henry Holland.
The show was a mix of fashion and dance and there was a great energy in the arena, there was even a short performance by one of the bands that got to judges houses in the years X Factor (would have preferred Union J though...)
Even though all the festivities and clothes were lovely the best bit of the day was hanging out with some of my favourite bloggers and eating a few too many of Sarah's amazing cakes.
There was lots going on at the Echo Falls wine bar which proved to be a great place to relax away from all the crowds of teenagers. There were some great talks by bloggers giving fashion and blogging tips, interviews with designers and big names in fashion and Sarah did a talk about nail art. If you didn't manage to catch any of these over the course of the Clothes Show Live you can watch them all online here.
I didn't come away from the Clothes Show Live with a case full of clothes like some but I did treat myself to two sparkly new nail polishes from Models Own and got a free bag of goodies including a red lip liner which a really needed and some eyeliner which I can't wait to try out all for £10.
Did you visit the Clothes Show Live? what did you think?
