Celebration of Style

The three day extravaganza shone the spotlight on Liverpool this weekend as the city celebrated local fashion, beauty, art, photography and architecture.

The events launched on Thursday evening where guests could meet organisers, partners and brush shoulders with celebrities such as Abbey Clancy and Matthew Williamson.

Friday was a day of pop-up fashion stands at Stanley dock with plenty to buy and try. As well as the stalls high profile industry experts were there to do fashion panel talks.

The event that really stole the show however was the Cricket Fashion Night Out on Friday evening. The night included a showcase of designer collections from the likes of Victoria Beckham, Stella McCartney and YSL as well as live musical performances from Dom Chung and Kelli Leigh.
Held at the Cunard building on Water Street, local fashionistas as well as big names such as Made in Chelsea star Rosie Fortescue and Arcadia heiress Chloe Green could be spotted in the front row of the catwalk event.
This was followed by an aftershow party at Palm Sugar where celebrities such as Jenny Frost and Rebecca Ferguson were seen dancing the night away.
Justine Mills and Denise Harris, organisers of the Celebration of Style, both praised the city as an inspiration for the event and were proud to have helped place it securely on the fashion map.
Justine Mills, Cricket owner, said: “In fashion I've been lucky enough to go to some amazing events and met some amazing people, and I've said to them 'why don't you come to Liverpool?'. When they do they can't believe the buildings and the nightlife and everything we have to offer. I thought if they were so impressed then what we needed was a way to get more people coming here and feeling that way." 
Denise Harris, of SK Events, which organises the Liverpool Food and Drink Festival, added: "What struck us both was that we've been to these fabulous events all over the country and all over the world, but felt that nothing like that happens in Liverpool.”
