We were invited by the designers Paris King and Jacqueline Rowbottom from Willow The Label, as their official social reporters to attend the Designer Q Fashion Awards. This red carpet event kicked off the summer fashion season on the 15th of October at St John’s Cathedral. 16 fashion designers showcased their styles on he runway while style-savvy guests looked on and discussed the trends of 2016. It was a very successful event launching labels and careers of prominent up and coming designers from all around the world, as well as established designers. The organisers hope to take the designers worldwide to showcase their collections in London, Paris and New York giving them maximum world wide exposure.

As media guests, we were seated in the VIP front row seats where we received gift bags and red carpet entrance to an exclusive opening party. With flowing drinks and many a canapé we were happy to stay and mingle with top industry professionals, models & designers.
This was the fourth year running for the Designer Q Runway, and they were thrilled to announce that St John’s Cathedral will be the venue for the next coming years.
A big congratulation to the organiser and designer Niki Telega for all her continued hard work and continued effort and support, along with all the models, sponsors and volunteers.
We are looking forward to next year’s event!
