More than 450 people, including leading figures from the fashion industry, the fashion press and members of the public are expected to attend the progressive Sponsor Me Awards, which honour eco-conscious designers.
The Awards will be judged by fashion luminaries including entrepreneur Gillian Osrin, founder of the eco-ethical fashion website Style With Heart, and award-winning fashion designer, Manpreet Singh.
Emerging fashion designers will be invited to compete at the show for prizes including the chance to dress a well-known celebrity for a high profile star-studded event. The winning designer will see their fashions sold online through Style With Heart, as well as in a number of high street stores.
360Fashion Network will be offering the winner a branded mobile app powered by the 360Fashion MobileMags platform in its role as the Sponsor Me Awards paperless app supporter. Colourful Radio is the event’s media partner.
Radio One presenter, Gemma Cairney, will host the evening event, which will also feature a performance from Kelly Marie Smith of BBC’s ‘The Voice’ fame. The Awards will take place in Congress Hall, the largest space at Congress Centre which accommodates up to 500 theatre style.
On arrival, guests will be greeted in the Foyer with drinks, snacks and canapés from 6pm and the fashion show, with proceeds going to homeless charity Centrepoint, is due to begin at 7pm. An open bar will run throughout the event, which is scheduled to end around 9:30pm.
The organisers are intending to make use of much of the built-in equipment at the venue, but plan to provide their own runway for the event. The Congress Suites (four interconnecting rooms on the same floor as the Hall) will be used for storage and changing rooms, and upstairs a number of fashion stalls will be set up in the venue’s Marble Hall which overlooks the famous Epstein statue in the building’s central courtyard.
