As I promised last week, this post is all about that fantastic event that I went to a couple of weeks ago.
This is not the same show as Britain’s top model, it’s a very similar concept though. This show was for UK Top Model and Top Model Worldwide.
The reason that I was lucky enough to be invited to this extravagant event is due to the lovely Agnieszka Klaput. A designer of amazing clothing called Aga Couture. I wrote about The Aga Couture brand a couple of years ago here
I felt very privileged to receive the invite from Agnieszka and I came away from the show really starry-eyed! The show was held at the Hilton Metropole in Edgeware Road, a stunning hotel and you could really feel the buzz of the event. This contest and event have happened each year since 2006 and it also supports the charity Children With Cancer and this year it raised over £30.000.00 for the cause wich I think is amazing.
I’m going to start off with some photos of Agnieszka getting the finalist ready for their last catwalk challenge, and some photos of her designs on the catwalk courtesy of Renata Turlejeska.
Then I will add my photos that I managed to capture. Not so easy to capture a fast paced walking model! But I don’t think I did too bad a job!
I was very lucky to be given a VIP table with wine, chocolates and a lovely goody bag! But most of all the best view I could have wished for. You can find more information about the event here You may want to go yourself next year. I totally recommend it.
I will also leave you with a couple of videos about the contest and then, of course, the link up.
The Judges for the competition were sitting just behind me right at the end of the catwalk.One of the judges were Sarah Harding from Girls Aloud, and she looked absolutely stunning. I hope she didn’t catch me gawping!
Agnieszka adding the finishing touches backstage. I can’t imagine how busy and fast paced it must have been!
Making sure each model finalist looks perfect for the runway
How beautiful do they all look?!! What dress is your favourite?
I will leave you with the photos that I took myself and a couple of youtube videos that I found really interesting. I know the event was filmed, I’m just trying to find out when and where it will be broadcast so I will keep you posted on that. This competition was for men as well as women. I’m showing photos of the female models here, but if you want to see the male finalist you can find loads on the Twitter site for Top Model UK @TOPMODELUK
Other designers that were dressing the models were – Omar Mansoor – Lennie Boya – Eva Grygo and See-Saw Menswear.
Snippets The Documentary of how the models train for the competition was shown
There was also a swimwear catwalk as well as underwear. I can’t imagine how nervous those girls were! The winner of the competition was Viktorija K from Lithuania
