Cosmopolitan #FashFest

The Truth About Celebrity Fashion Master Class

Last week Cosmopolitan magazine launched the UK's first fashion festival, #FashFest, hosting five fashion events in five days.  This included a live lingerie show, fashion master class from industry leaders, e-commerce evening with discounts and a catwalk fashion show with an awards ceremony.

 Panel for the evening

I attended the fashion master class, The Truth About Celebrity Fashion, hosted by Cosmo's Editor Louise Court.  Industry leaders in celebrity fashion revealed their trade secrets working with celeb clients and gave career tips and advice on how to break into the industry.

Celebrity hairdresser Ben Cooke talked about his experiences working under pressure and changing up looks quickly for celebs. Makeup artist Lisa Valencia gave tips on the top makeup essentials every girl should have in her makeup bag, Digital Marketing Manager Stephanie Bamsey gave useful advice on how to break into the industry of fashion marketing.

Pixie Lott also joined the panel dishing her beauty and fashion style tips. She proved that the celebrity world isn't always as glamorous as it seems - she once had to wash her hair on an aeroplane loo sink! 

Afterwards, the audience got to ask the panel questions and as well wine and nibbles, we were given a goody bag stuffed with freebies and the latest edition of Cosmopolitan Fashion too.

Afterwards, I headed to the Very.co.uk catwalk show, #VeryOnTrend, hosted by Rochelle Humes from the pop group The Saturdays. We got to see the models strut the catwalk showcasing Very.co.uk's key looks for A/W season, with a live DJ set and beauty sessions taking place just before the catwalk show started.
