I was lucky enough to spend some time with all the motivational women and the students before the catwalk show to see some 'behind the scenes' action of the preparation for the show. The ladies make up was done by the wonderful staff at Urban Decay and Origins, aswell as a professional service from Charlotte Moore, a gorgeous lady who has just set up her own business after being in the industry for years. I have been told she is the best around so if you ever need a MUA in Nottingham for makeovers, weddings or professional photography shoots then check out her website. The nominees then had their hair done by Nick, Bryonie and Lucie at Bliss Hair who did an amazing job of transforming the locks of each lady. When they were all preened and pampered then they were ready to take the stage.
The ladies showed off their new looks and new outfits to a cheering audience while we heard about why they had been chosen. Each of these inspirational women looked absolutely fantastic and like they were having a ball! After the catwalk they were each given a goody bag and could book themselves in for a 30 minute facial at Origins, what could be better!? This event epitomises the message of International Womens Day and was a fabulous way of celebrating and recognising the women that inspire us. I had a great time at the event meeting some lovely people and I'm sure all the ladies did too.
