Event: Walk This WayWednesday, 26 October 2011
Last Friday night I attend Walk This Way at the O2 Academy in Leeds. The aim of the event was to fuse music and fashion together. We saw the likes of Oceans, Hannah Trigwell and I Call Shotgun. I really enjoyed watching the range of acts and it was interesting to have the catwalk show running along with the them. I sat myself down along side the lovely Lauren and Elly.
In theory this would be an amazing event for Leeds as it has both a thriving music and fashion scene. I think that it will get bigger year on year if they continue the event. There were some great individual pieces but I think that the styling could of been a bit more adventurous. There is only so many models in their underwear you can stomach. There were some amazing hair dos from the brilliant Toni & Guy.
We saw some great dresses that just spoke for themselves. The picture below shows the great detail on the back of one of the dresses. The Walk This Way event was such a good idea but I think they should of started with a smaller venue as the O2 was a big venue to fill. It would be great to see the event come back next year and continue to help put Leeds fashion on the map.
