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!

My Top Secret Super Exciting Project!!

I'm working on a project with a hugely well known company and in the build up to the final reveal I'll be posting little clues about what it is I'm getting upto- mwahaha! If anyone can guess correctly... I will make you your own bespoke dress (female) waistcoat (males)
And you just can't figure out quiet what it is I will tell you all December 8th so keep reading...
Here's your first clue...

April Banbury Designs Rocks Cannes Film Festival

05/30/2012

Cannes Film Festival...
This was like no place I'd ever been before, the elite of the elite surrounded me! A supreme class of fashion, fast cars and the best parties on the planet!
So...
I was extremely lucky to be one of the 200 people to get invited to Kanye Wests Film Premier - Cruel Summer!
After strutting it down the red carpet (on a sureal bubble) in my own design with Mr West, Kim Kardashian and Jay-Z I met the lovely Christa who is California's TOP blogger. She approached me adoring the gown I was wearing.
Check out the lovely write up she done on my dress, she quotes "Our favourite dress of the night was this April Banbury design"
