A couple of weekends ago I volunteered to join the paparazzi team capturing the catwalk at the Sheffield Style Show, an annual fashion show in aid of Sheffield Children’s Hospital and sponsored by Panache. Independent boutiques and designers from Sheffield and nearby got the chance to show off their latest collections on the catwalk whilst supporting a local charity close to many people’s hearts. It was a fantastic event with a huge variety of fashion on show from bridal wear to cosy autumn outfits to edgy menswear, with some of the outfits available to buy on the day from pop up stalls at the venue.
Something that stood out to me about the day (besides a sudden awareness that I need to go shopping immediately for an entirely new wardrobe) was the wonderful array of ages and body types represented on the catwalk. It was refreshing and so encouraging to see more than just the usual young, tall and slim girls modelling the outfits. Seeing the variety of fashion on a real range of body shapes meant there was much more opportunity for everyone in the crowd to picture themselves wearing the dress or the top (or the entire collection) that caught their eye.
Here are a few of my favourite shots from the catwalk from WED2B, Mary-Anne Hunter, Taking Shape, Moo Designs, Lost Rockstar and Panache. More of my Style Show photographs can be found on my website www.heatherisobel.co.uk.
