Daytime TV stylist to host Wirral fashion show
A TOP TV stylist and model will help to transform Birkenhead into a world of fashion next week.
Caroline Childs, who has appeared on ITV daytime show This Morning, will be putting on a fashion and dance show at The Grange and Pyramids Shopping Centre on Saturday, September 29.
The ‘Fashion on the Move’ event will feature flash mob groups of dancing models wearing the latest trends.
Caroline, 31, said: “This winter it’s going to be red wines and claret colours from head to toe – normally at this time of year it’s black with accent colours but this year it will be berry colours all the way, dresses, leggings and shoes.
“The nautical look is also going to be big this winter with Breton-style French navy striped tops.
“It’s all a nod to Kate Middleton who is a massive influence this season and so is Marilyn Monroe – this is the 60th anniversary of her death and the hourglass figure and feminine curves are back with structured dresses to emphasise the waist and the fuller form.
“One of my aims is to pull from the shops things that will mirror this kind of look and show how you can get it from the high street which should be quite easy to do.
“We use models to show you how clothes will look on you – they aren’t six foot beanpoles but they are trained to dance and move because this is a really fun event.
“We put the clothes under quite a lot of pressure during the show – that translates well to the audience because it shows just what the outfit will look like when you are out dancing on a Saturday night.”
Among those stores taking part are Next, Dorothy Perkins, River Island, Republic, Miss Selfridge, Hannon, Blue Inc and Internacionale.
Derek Millar, commercial director of the shopping centre, said: “Fashion On The Move is set to be a really lively and unique way of sharing the latest trends with our shoppers with some great offers to be had.
“We are very pleased to be having the expert help of Caroline on the day and look forward to welcoming her to Birkenhead.”
