Miss Flavour 2010
My beautiful cousin Mary Bello who is a writer with Flavour Magazine invited me down to come and watch Miss Flavour at the Cafe De Paris that took place on the 3rd November. I can’t believe that it has been going for 4 years and this is the first time I have ever attended Miss Flavour.
It was a full house packed with a lot of young, hip and trendy fashionistas, family and friends who cam
e out to support the 14 beautiful girls that were competing to become Miss Flavour 2010 and take the crown from last year’s winner Melissa Lewars.
The evening was hosted by 1xtra's Ace Vis who did a great job with the young , what I call Hip Hop crowd and there were 10 celebrity judges including Jasmia Robinson (Britain's Next Top Model), who had a hard time picking out the eventual winner and celebrities like the comedienne Slim and Yolande of La Geneve North were in the house.
The only traumatic thing that took place was when Ace Vis had an Australia's Next Top Model moment and announced the wrong winner. These things happen but it was a bit sad as one raises the expectations of the person that thought they had won and the next minute they are shot down.
Eventually they got it right and I must say congratulations to Neetu Sahota for winning Miss Flavour 2010 and Léa Gladys Poupelin being the first runner up Siobhan Copland coming 3rd.
If I am invited again I would look forward to attending again and if you want an informal night out it is definitely worth attending.
Sacred Childhoods Foundation Ethical Fashion Show
What I a week I have been having literally running from one event to another and today was no different as I attended the Sacred Childhoods Foundation Ethical Fashion Show at the exclusive Vanilla Club in the West End on 3rd November 2010. Sacred Childhoods is working to safeguard vulnerable and underprivileged children in Indonesia, South East Asia.
For me this was a show with a difference as its principle aims were to raise funds for the foundation but at the same time promoting sustainable, fairly traded fashion using beautiful models, who often face discrimination by the mainstream fashion industry. So this definitely was an event that pulled on my heart strings.
A number of designers donated pieces for the event and on this occasion I deem it only fair that I name all of them - here goes.
Fee Uhssi Design
Little Grass Clementine
Piece of Mind
Natural Cotton Color
Pants to Poverty
Pure Design Company
Lost Property of London
I know that it is a long list but it is well worth listing and if you are ever looking for ethical designers this is a great place to start from.
It was surely a show with a difference as the models walked around the room wearing the pieces with the designers on hand to talk through what inspired them and I am amazed at the designs the designers have created out of recycled items.
This was truly a worthwhile and inspirational evening, very enjoyable.
