Norwich Fashion Week #NFW

Monday, 13 March 2017

I was lucky enough to be invited to come along to the Hair and Make Up show last Friday as part of Norwich Fashion Week sponsored by local opticians Dipple and Conway. As you can tell from the pretty close up photos I also got to sit in the front row which was a fantastic experience! I had never been to a fashion show before and thought 'It's hardly going to be London Fashion Week' but by the way it was produced it really could have been!

After a pre-show G&T (in the VIP area even) we made our way to our seats. The show started with local opera singer Emma Nuule providing a sensationally dramatic opening which set the scene for the rest of the show perfectly! 

As you can tell, the effort that the various groups put into. The one which I think caught everyone's eye in particular with their breathtaking detail was a group called 'Paintopia' where the artists had depicted all sorts of images and colours onto their models which had some somewhat mad but sensational results! 

The thing that struck me the most was the confidence and professionalism of all the models that ran the catwalk. Going up there in itself is daunting but everyone looked so cool and comfortable up on the runway (Special shout out to the group of women styled in burlesque clothing; I'd never have that confidence)! 

There were so many wonderful looks showcased which perfectly fit the dramatic and bold theme. Everything seemed so original and authentic and I love how daring some of the looks were. It's brilliant for artists to be able to show off their creativity with this freedom. 

Also I got the chance to meet another Norwich based blogger (at last!) the lovely Kerry from Sparkle with Kerry  so do take a look at her blog! I think it's fantastic that this event collaborated local MUAs, designers and salon stylists. It was a perfect opportunity for people based locally such as Lowestoft College, The Cottage, Millie Rose, The Norwich School of Beauty (and much more!) to show off their stunning work and talents that they may not be able to show off in other ways.

I really hope you enjoy looking at the various looks and I want to thank Norwich Fashion Week for inviting me to view their show as it was truly wonderful! 


  1. I don't think I've ever been to a proper fashion week show. This looks and sounds supercool! I love how experimental the looks seem! Although maybe that's just fashion. I'm afraid I'm not so up to date with the fashion trends hehe (oopsie!) :)

    1. This was my first ever and I loved it! I think the looks were experimental as it was a 'hair and make up' show. rather than emphasis on clothes, it was more to show what MUAs and salon artists etc could do! It was awesome :)
