Headz Up Business Fashion Catwalk

Last Friday I was a guest at the Headz Up Business Women in Business Expo, held in Birmingham’s beautiful Council House. Part of the Expo was taken up with the Fashion Business Catwalk, which meant I got to sit front row and enjoy some fabulous fashion. The event was organised by Pushpa Alexander, the inspirational whirlwind behind Headz Up Business, who organise networking events, conferences and Expo’s for women in business, focusing on digital and social media technology, and allowing women to network with similar professionals in a host of different settings.

With Dave aka Mr Brum Hour.

The Women in Business Expo was a great success, with the centrepiece being the Fashion Catwalk.  This runway show was managed by former Mr Birmingham Joshua Williams, who is also the brains behind the Elite Fashion Show. The show showcased some local designers, from Jewellery Quarter based Dolls of Decadence, new Birmingham label Vaughan, Elvira Lee Couture, heavily influenced by 1970s glamour, El Monet, which is both designed and manufactured in the second city, and Kiss Me Kate, the destination for beautiful evening wear in Birmingham.

In addition to the designers and their stunning collections, the catwalk stage also hosted talks from Ruth May, an up and coming jewellery designer, Sally Klein, an inspirational lifestyle coach, and West Midlands Police, who were there to talk about Cyber safety in the modern age. All the guest speakers also hosted their own stalls so you could talk to them in more detail if you wished.

The Women in Business Expo was the most enjoyable of events, a way to make some valuable contacts whilst having a coffee, browsing the exhibitors and taking in some fabulous new fashion. It also raised funds for a brilliant local charity ‘Ladies Fighting Breast Cancer’ and it was wonderful to hear Veronica Kumeta from the charity speaking so passionately about her vision for helping cancer sufferers and survivors in Birmingham.
