Newsrooms Got Talent!

After winning a design competition through Tiger World PR, I got to design and make a dress for ITV & ITN producer Erin O'Toole for Newsrooms Got Talent 2013!! Eeeek!!

I was so excited about this project!! After weeks of fittings with Erin the dress was complete, and here it is....I'm waiting on a better photo - Mr Graham Reading if your reading this send photos my way. ha!

I was also lucky enough to attend the event. I kitted my friend and I both out in gowns I'd made prior to the event - A full lace long sleeved fish tail worn by myself and a bright white Grecian gown worn by Zena.

The night was fantastic full of producers and presenters performing talents on stage raising funds of £150,00 for the Leonard Cheshire Disability and UNICEF. The event was sponsored by Barclays with Blue as their headline performers Zena and I were melting (high-school crush).

The judging panel was made up of the incomparable Pete Waterman, Cheryl Baker, Rylan Clark and Nancy Dell'Olio! The evening was hosted by the incredible Kate Thornton and Richard Arnold!
