Now in its 11th year, Midlands Fashion Awards is an established and dedicated showcase for independent, emerging and creative talent in the region.
From designers to make-up artists and stylists to photographers, last Friday night the city’s most talented up and coming designers and industry talent were celebrated.
An evening of glitz, glamour, cocktails and fashion, the catwalk show and awards ceremony was hosted by actress and presenter Nicky Campbell, who said:
If you weren’t at the MFA’s then you missed out – incredible talent and creativity from all involved! So proud to have been part of such a fantastic evening!
All MFA 2018 winners received a trophy and will gain industry-led opportunities to further their career. As a media partner, Style Birmingham Magazine will be providing the chance to work on an editorial fashion shoot and gain media exposure, while FashionCapital.co.uk will offer a one-to-one mentoring session with industry expert and CEO Jenny Holloway, as well as supply 60m of fabric valued at £3000.
