Lights,camera, action: the showThe show began with a whole bunch of gorgeous models, dancing down the catwalk to candy man by Christina Aguilera. One by one each model reappeared looking beautiful in jaw-dropping dresses! Each dress gave a huge nod to the 40's/ 50's era, with feminine silhouettes, complemented by 40's/50's inspired hair and make up.
Jo talked us through the inspiration and stories behind each bespoke beauty and took questions from members of the audience. I found my self ooohhing and arring as each frock was even more gorgeous than the next. I wasn't alone as I could hear comments from people sat behind me that echoed this.
Stylist Karen Smyth also spoke of the great service that she had received from Jo. She was wearing a Jo Irvine design that night; a stand out bright pink dress, teamed with long white gloves and a very chic pair of specs!
A fitted gold sequin number teamed with a white ruffle top was thrown into the mix which was one of my favourite looks.
The Finale was a delight- a bride and groom walking down the catwalk. We were asked to throw our confetti over the couple which was another great way to interact with the audience.
In all the show was truly fabtastic, and confirmed what I already knew being that Miss Jo Irvine is one hell of an UH-MAZING designer!!
