I noticed that recently in this world we do so little for others and so much for ourselves. It’s always welcoming and admirable when we do something for someone we have never met or for a worthy cause. So when fellow Blogger babe Toni put on a fashion event in aid of the Burns unit, well i simply had to come along and be involved.
The wonderful owner of The Next Big Thing events Toni Eaton was presenting a night in aid of the Burns Unit Royal Victoria Newcastle, A heart breaking event shattered Toni’s life as she states in her own words “I received a call to find out my dad had been in a gas explosion, leaving him with 60% plus third degree burns internal and external” Toni Eaton (https://fashprenuer.com/2017/05/16/what-is-happening-at-the-burns-unit-catwalk-event/). This horrific and frightful experience shattered the whole family, after an induced comma and three months recovery, Toni’s father was then moved to the burns were he received excellent care, support and structure throughout his recovery. The dedication of the staff stood out to Toni and for her event she decided to host a spectacular run way filled of fashion, glamour and show casing brands from across the north east. All funds raised are being donated to the Burns unit at the Royal Victoria as a thank you for all their support and to provide the hospital with some funding to continue their valuable work with patients.
The event showcased Lingerie from the luxurious Black Velvet (Black Velvet), in which i have decided i want everything and especially for my honeymoon, The pieces were divine and simply oozed elegance. Some festival looks and summer pieces were provided by Slaves2style (Slaves2Style) showing us modern, chick looks for this summers 2017. Their was something for the Guy’s from Marshall Brady clothing (Marshall Brady Clothing). Which really stood out to me and had some great pieces, Which I might get Alex for our trip to Florida… I love seeing a catwalk that show cases both male and female trends, looks and must haves, especially when i am my fiance’s personal stylist!. My jaw hit the floor when Katherine Davidson’s (katherinedavidson.co.uk). Bridal and occasion wear came on and it provided me with so much wedding inspo, The dress with the tulle and floral detailing were extravagant, striking and breathtaking. These dresses are ideal for the ‘non traditional’ bride like myself or more alternative brides who want a bit more shall we say… Va Va Voom!
