EEEE I'm off to The Clothes Show

Thank you to the super fantastic Idea Generation... I have two tickets to The Clothes Show (in Birmingham) in December!!!

I can't tell you how excited I am.  My school used to run a school trip to this event but they cancelled it when I was due to go (silly school!).  I then went away for further study and it was impossible to get back in time.  Then I was working.. but this year.... this year I was umming and ahhing due to the £25 price tag of each ticket.  I didn't know what to expect and £25 is a lot to spend on something without knowing what to expect!

For anyone who doesnt know, The Clothes Show was a program that ran on the BBC from 1986-2000.  It was created and hosted by Jeff Banks (Click here for more info).   As a child and teenager I used to watch it on sundays, just before tea.  I didnt understand a lot of what went on, but I was transfixed by the fashion designers, make-up artists and hairdressers demonstrating different looks.  It was such a good introdroduction and prepared the way for many of the industry professionals and style shows we now look up to.  I also learnt a lot and continued to study in the creative field.  It's not my job, but I do still sew and sometimes make my own clothes and accessories.  (Perhaps I'll post some pictures one day!)

I am very excited.  I now have to decide what day I want to go!!  Has anyone been before?  Do you have any survival tips for a Clothes Show newbie??  Anything I should look out for??

P.s. I am on twitter now: my user name is computergirl200 so please add me is you use twitter.


  1. It gets VERY busy - beware of that. Don't take a big bag, and keep an eye out for bargains.
    If you go on the first day it's all 'expensive' but its the best stuff. If you go on the last day it's all been reduced but it's just the left overs.
    I went on the last day last year and still got loads though.

    Congrats - and have a good time! I might be going but i haven't booked yet
