Stars of Desperate Scousewives and XFactor were among the 350 people who joined us for this year’s amazing Style Factory Fashion Showcase at The Hilton Hotel, Liverpool on Thursday night.
Ellissa Corrigan and Jaiden Michael from Desperate Scousewives were on the front row to watch Enterprise South Liverpool Acadmeny be crowned this year’s Style Factory Fashion Showcase winners after they battled it out on the catwalk alongside some top Liverpool fashion labels.
The event, sponsored by Littlewoods.com, was the grand finale of our latest long term project. Four groups have been working The Style Factory team for the last 6 months to set up their own fashion label and produce a collection of clothes from scratch.
The collections were judged by a panel of top fashion experts including Della Nelson (Head of Womenswear Design at Shop Direct Group), Nicola Cupples (Stylist and Founder of MyStyle Companion.com) and Samantha Chong (Liverpool based designer to the stars).
The night, hosted by Rick Vaughn, also included catwalk shows from the gorgeous Samantha Chong, the fabulous Love Frocks and our lovely sponsors Littlewoods.com, as well as a breathtaking performances from XFactor’s James Michael and Candidate 23.
Enterprise South Liverpool Academy were chosen as the well deserved winners of the top prize…..they were praised by the judges for their outstanding use of colour and the wearability of their ‘Maritme’ inspired collection. They scooped themselves the top prize of a professional fashion photoshoot.
Other prizes were also awarded to Style Factory students with outstanding talents in design, marketing and sewing techniques.
Sophie Jones, from Deyes High School in Maghull, was given special recognition as The Best Creative Director after judges picked out her ice cream cone-inspired dress as the most original design. Dominique Crowley, from Runcorn Fashion Club in Runcorn, was awarded the accolade of Most Outstanding Individual Effort and took her home a brand new sewing machine.
The event was also used to raise money for The Princes Trust and raised over £300 though a charity raffle and silent auction…..amaze!!!
