Next was a designer called K's Gems who creates jewellery with a spiritual heritage. Each model represented a different star sign with the jewellery specifically corresponding to them. The jewellery was stunning and with its unique presentation and background, each piece truly stood out!
The designer Mirror Image then came to stage showcasing some beautiful fashion pieces and afterwards came the beautiful Forever Devine with her new bridal collection before their big debut in London Fashion Week this fall which the designer has kindly invited me to attend!
African inspired Radiant Empress then stomped the runway presenting some beautiful tribal patterns and garments. It was her god-daughter that stole the show though! At only a few years old, she skipped down the runway to a round of applause from the audience!
Maurice Whittingham Couture then showcased their Blue Winter collection which was so unbelieably unique it was crazy to think that he isn't as big as some of the biggest brands on the planet. His concepts were so raw but so vivid, incredible!
Mystique Boutique then presented their beautiful dresses in a dance style with all models generally enjoying the moment and having fun with it! As the designer herself said, she wants to bring high fashion to the public without the high fashion price tag and she most certainly has!
It was then time for a brief intermission whilst local performer Brianna Howell sang a stunning setlist that was greatly recieved by the audience! She sang her heart out on stage and truly embraced her moment.
It was then time for the final designer of the night, Chio Couture! With a very edgy and modern take on contemporary clothing, the models gave a fierce finale to the nights runway events.
It has been an absoloute whirlwind planning this show but I am so happy that it was a success, not only for myself but for all of those involved. The amount raised will stay a secret until the Mr England final but I can gladly say it has smashed my initial goal of £1000! I'm so thankful for everyone's support and I couldn't have done it without you! I'd just like to say a huge thank you also to my Miss England family for coming and supporting me. It meant alot to have the support of my new friends and I couldn't be more grateful. Each designer, model, photographer and everyone mentioned who helped in any way, shape and form I am eternally thankful to you. It was a team effort and because of this, the show was a success! I am still in shock at how much was raised that night and the opportunities that have been presented to designers, models and myself alike!
This has become exceptionally long now but I just have to say once more, thank you so much to everyone who made the show a success. I'm truly honoured to have such a huge support network!
Mr Birmingham 2015/16 and Mr England Finalist
