Birmingham event photography – The Show: Ten at Bullring
On Saturday I watched the 5pm run of the Show: Ten at Bullring on Saturday. Part of Style Birmingham Live, the fashion spectacular was designed to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Bullring and was hosted by Mollie King from the Saturdays.

For once, high street did not parrot haute couture – and models were not over-styled but looked quite fresh, relaxed and natural. The clothes were imminently wearable. I loved the green tones of the runway set – it’s my favourite colour this season. It worked well with psychodelic light projections on the back of the stage. Blue-green swirls, camouflage, polka dot and other designs changed in succession as new style trends/scenes were introduced. All in all, the show was a success!
