Well I had absolutely no idea that Essex Fashion Week was actually real, but lo and behold, it is! Shuuuuuut Uuuuuuuup I hear you say!
I went today and had an absolute barrel of laughs! Essex really is like no other place on earth. Every person there had made so much effort with their appearance (with varying levels of success!), that you have to take your hats off to them!
Janice Dickinson opened the show. She seemed a little disappointed that the Essex crowd weren’t a rowdier bunch!
Twins from The Only Way is Essex, Adam Ryan and Simon Ryan, warmed up the crowd with their take on Essex Fashion Week’s global importance (!). Apparently we are to forget Paris and Milan…

New Look were the main sponsors of the event and they put on a really good catwalk line up that showcased some fabbie pieces for Spring and Summer.
The stars from ‘love it or hate it’ reality(ish) TV show, The Only Way Is Essex, walked the runway, much to everyone’s delight. Check out this video featuring Lydia Bright, Jessica Wright, Adam Ryan and Simon Ryan.
In the audience were The Only Way is Essex arch rivals, Lucy Mecklenburgh and Lauren Goodger.

Nev and his team from Wonderful Hair were responsible for all the gorgeous long locks at the show. Wonderful Hair have developed ground breaking Cold Fusion technology for hair extensions which not only means that a full head of extensions can be done in just 90 minutes but that damage from heat and glue is eliminated. Here is Louise Bailey from Wonderful Hair doing a demo on my lovely twitter friend Hayley. Visit www.wonderfulhair.co.uk for more information.

A fun day was had by all but next time I go to Essex I’m wearing more fake tan and less clothes!
