Backstage at the UKFT Awards – Fashion Show

The UK Fashion & Textile Awards 2013 is a very prestigious event and was held at One Mayfair. The awards were presented by HRH The Princess Royal, President of UKFT, at the gala ceremony hosted by Myleene Klass. It was a black tie event – I always love to see people so dressed up!

I was very happy to be styling the show and backstage was very calm and relaxed as we had a really good team plus the models were all in good spirits. The models were all from FM and several of them had only done 1 or 2 shows before, so it was a great opportunity for them to gain some experience. There were two parts to the show: the evening started off by showcasing the 2012 Graduate Fashion Week Winners and then later in the evening, after the dinner, it was the awards ceremony – the moment everyone had been waiting for! It’s quite exciting for us as we know who the winners were, but the winner and the audience didn’t know so whenever someone won we’d hear a huge roar of applause from the audience. It’s great to see that several young designers were also winners: Christopher Raeburn won Designer Business of the Year and Emma J Shipley won the Hotel Indigo UKFT Rise Newcomer Award. When I was doing the prep for the show I had several looks from Ted Baker – during the rest of week while running my errands and going to meetings I kept seeing so many women wearing Ted Bakers dresses, so it wasn’t surprizing that they won Brand of the Year. Everyone I know loves their head office and whenever I have a new intern I always try to send them there to experience the Ugly Brown Building!
