Review: Clothes Show Live

The Clothes Show Live makes its annual visit to Birmingham and it’s bigger and better than ever!



The UK’s biggest fashion and beauty event returns for its 23rd year at the N.E.C in Birmingham with even more than ever. It’s arguably the best place on Earth for ANY shopaholic because no matter what you want to buy, chances are you’ll find it at the Clothes Show.


The fashion show was, as always, a show stopper. With a mixture of dancing and models strutting their stuff, it was definitely a show worth watching. The theme this year was A Night At The Department Store”, it was very cleverly done, each dance connecting with the next floor in the store. For example, Ladieswear or  lingerie. With music from Rihanna, Example and Ellie Goulding , it was hard for me to stay in my seat and not get up and dance!


The shopping experience itself has to be one of the best Clothes Show to date. With over 500 stalls providing a range of clothes, bags and hair and make-up brands, it’s every shoppers dream. Whether you’re after false lashes or faux fur, mini skirt or makeover, heels or hand massage, it’s all under one huge roof! Leading brands such as Bourgeois, Paul’s Boutique and GHD didn’t fail to impress with their special Clothes Show offers.


My only advise would be to take cash with you. I made the mistake of thinking most stalls would take card, they don’t! All the cash machines have massive queues and they charge to take out cash. Other than that, it was a great day out and I guarantee it won’t fail to disappoint!
