Fashion Show with Real Shoppers – The Mall, Luton

I have loved working with The Mall, shopping centre group, the idea of using real shoppers of different body shapes and ages was a big hit with the audience. After the fashion workshop, last month, I styled and presented The Mall’s fashion show with fashion blogger, Monique Hines.
Our brief was to style the 19 members of a drama group from Dunstable, plus Miss Teen Bedfordshire, Chloe Lynch. After, the fashion show, the shopping centre gave Monique and I a challenge of styling two models, a male and a female model each from our group, on a £50 budget. This Style Wars challenge was no easy challenge as we had to style a full outfit using clothes from the centre with only £50 to spend! To top it all, the audience had to vote for their favourite outfit. As much fun as it was working with Monique, a challenge is a challenge for me so I wasn’t intending on losing! As you can imagine I was over the moon when both my outfits were voted as the audience’s winning outfits.
Chloe was my female model and wore a plum coloured dress from Peacocks, a very on trend colour for this autumn winter and I styled it with strappy sandals also from Peacocks and a necklace and handbag from Primark. My male model was styled in a trendy cable cardigan and Converse style trainers from Primark, tee shirt and skinny jeans from Peacocks. After the fashion show the Mall’s marketing manager, Lavinia Douglass surprised the drama group by presenting  a cheque to them for their participation in the show.
It was a week of hard work choosing all the clothes for the fashion show but The Mall has such a great selection of stores under one roof that it made styling the models fun. Also, the audience could see that no matter what body shape you are, there is always a cut of clothing to suit everyone. A great idea using real shoppers, instead of catwalk models and I think the audience agreed judging by the applause.
