Clothes Show Live celebrates next-gen of fashion talent
Jun '14
Clothes Show Live has brought together the future stars of the fashion industry for its Bright Young Things – Class of 2014 photo shoot, which was curated by winners of Clothes Show Live Creative Awards along with mentors from the industry. 
The event has a legacy of working with aspiring industry hopefuls by providing an advanced educational programme designed to help propel student talent and raise the profile of emerging designers. Bright Young Things is a celebration of emerging talent from all areas of the industry spanning design, photography, styling, modelling, hair styling, make-up artistry, and journalism.
The creative team line-up consisted of a combination of students and graduates who were discovered both at the show last year via the Clothes Show Live Creative Awards programme, and also recognised emerging talent from within the industry.
Fronting this year’s shoot was model Olivia James, from Northampton, who was scouted at the show last December by Select Model Management and chosen from hundreds of girls to become the ‘Face of 2014’.  
‘I was so excited when I got the call to announce I was going to be the Face of 2014 and the Bright Young Things Shoot.  I was actually on a textiles school trip to Clothes Show Live last December when I was scouted.’ Olivia explained. 
Olivia was joined by top model, Georgia Frost, who was her mentor on the day. Georgia was also scouted at Clothes Show Live by Select Model Management back in 2005, when she was just 14 years old. She has gone on to feature in campaigns for Dolce & Gabbana, Burberry, Chanel, H&M and Julien MacDonald, and has worked with key industry names including Mario Testino and Miles Aldridge.
Georgia commented ‘I was scouted at Clothes Show Live when I was 14, on a school Textiles Technology trip.  I’ve been lucky enough to work with Burberry, H&M, Zara, Urban Outfitters, Dolce & Gabbana, Italian Vogue and many more fantastic brands, publications and people.’
Olivia commented, ‘Having Georgia here to help me at the beginning of the shoot was such a help, it was great to talk to someone who has so much experience, and she really put me at ease.’ 
The shoot was styled by Sophie Benson, Co-Editor and Fashion Director of FLAKE. Sophie mixed up-and-coming designers and high-street.
‘The theme  of the Bright Young Things shoot was  ‘Carnival’ so I have  taken a range of young, up and coming designers, all of who embody the idea of a bright, fashionable, cool carnival. I’ve taken elements of the traditional dress; like layering, over the top accessories, bright contrasting colour and fun textures ,and bought them up to date with modern shapes, effects and accessories.’ Sophie commented.
Jordan Shields, Sophie’s assistant on the day, is currently studying Fashion (BA Hons) at Northampton University, and was a student helper at Clothes Show Live in 2013. One of Jordan’s university designs was used in the shoot .
