Catwalk Workshops

Friday, July 29th, 2011

The runway walk is an aspect that one so closely associates with a model, the perfect posture, the graceful stride and the underlying confidence so familiar to us all. However it is not something you are born with, the girls and boys from the catwalk didn’t strut as toddlers they all had to be taught.

The art of the perfect walk is not reserved for models, it may not be necessary to stride down the pavement like you are walking down the runway for Chanel but certain aspects are great to use and make a real difference to any individual. Good posture brings an air of confidence to anyone, after all slouching is something we are all guilty of, and the way we walk and present ourselves is a key influence on the response we gain from others. Here at BM Models we offer catwalk workshops taught by director and model Bethania Matheus, the workshops teach you tips and techniques and really get you thinking about your movements. Each workshop is tailored to the group’s needs; budding models are instructed about the best means to show off the clothes they are wearing on the runway and non-models are given tips to focus on posture and confidence.

Each workshop initially gets you to all work together with exercises aimed to loosen you up and break down each element to be learnt. Walking may seem as natural as breathing but there are so many components when you actually have to think about what you are doing, for example do you know where you lead your body from when you walk? After she has passed her wisdom onto you, Bethania then focuses on everyone individually, tweaking and tuning you till you are positively perfect! Recent workshops include Sussex Fashion Awards, Brighton Fashion Weekbrides-to-be, models for Brighton designers Jo Fleming and Renaissance shows.

Brighton Frocks

Monday, June 6th, 2011

On a warm Thursday night in Brighton town, in the gothic grandeur of St Martins church BFW 2011 bought us their Brighton Frocks theatrical catwalk spectacular.

The show featured twelve designers and the audience was treated to more than just the standard catwalk, each of the collection put on a performance for the audience with saucy seaside antics, ballet dancers and superheros all mixed up with the designs. Each of the collections was brilliantly unique and kept the audience thoroughly transfixed.

BM Models Bernadette, Bethany and Ngozi walked that night, and looked fantastic on the catwalk for Red Mutha, Former Glory and Afton Ayache.

5 MUST ATTEND FASHION EVENTS

5 MUST ATTEND FASHION EVENTS

For some, fashion is a way of life. Recognising trends, looking fabulous and getting familiar with the latest, cutting edge designs is as important and eating and breathing. But if you are a would-be fashionista in training, where are the best places to observe the finest that the fashion world has to offer? Take our whistle stop tour around the globe’s couture hotspots.

PARIS

If one place is synonymous with fashion it’s the ‘City of Light’: Paris. Every year the hottest designers and most eager fashion fans descend on the city to regale in the latest trends. In particular, the autumn show, held in October each year, attracts the crowds as it displays the designs the world will be wearing in the following spring and summer. Currently held at the Carousel du Louvre, right by the famous museum, top fashion houses such as Chanel, Vuitton, Gucci and Gaultier strut their stuff. The final show in the fashion year’s calendar, it is also one of the most exclusive with tickets being almost impossible to obtain unless you’re somebody in the fashion world. But the street fashions are just as fantastic and watching the beautiful people come and go on the Rue de Rivoli makes the trip worthwhile.

 

MILAN

Initiated back in 1958, the Milan apparel spectacle is considered the most glamorous of the global fashion events and provides the blueprint for other shows. The city was recently voted ‘fashion capital of the world’ out-ranking New York and Paris. With men and women’s clothing represented by separate events, there are now four Milan fashion weeks, with the highpoint considered the Spring/Summer event. With companies such as Gucci, Prada, Armani, Dolce & Gabbana, Versace and many others based in Milan, the houses jostle for superiority and pull out all the stops to outshine each other. But if you are a lover of fashion, a trip to Milan at anytime is worth it.


NEW YORK

While it is considered mainly a showcase for American designers, the New York fashion week extravaganza attracts top names from across the globe. Started during World War II when the clothes conscious were unable to travel to Paris for the latest trends, it is felt the success of the show finally gave US-based designers some leverage over the famous French houses. Now in it’s new home in Lincoln Centre, the Manhattan event kicks off the annual fashion calendar with the autumn line show held in February each year. The focus has shifted slightly in recent years away from the marquee events at prominent sites, with smaller designers showcasing their work at satellite events around the city.

LONDON

Rather a latecomer to the party, the first London fashion week launched in 1984. Both traditional British apparel is represented at the shows, as well as the edgier designs favoured by diverse houses such as Vivienne Westwood and Tatty Devine. A clash of the classical and cutting edge, the event is held at the sumptuous Somerset House each year, but recently became the first fashion event to stream everything live on the internet. For those not available to squeeze into the select events, the London Fashion Weekend, a more retail minded event, follows the main event and is open to all.


MOSCOW

Many cities are battling with the ‘Big Four’ fashion locales in an attempt to prove their global couture worth. Tokyo, São Paulo, Los Angeles, Hong Kong, Buenos Aires, Singapore and Toronto have annual design spectaculars, trying to gain some ground in the clothing market. Moscow has recently emerged as a forerunner, thanks in part to the sudden explosion of the Russian nouveau riche and an emergence of new designers since the fall of the Soviet Union. Now the biggest fashion week in Eastern Europe collections of local designers are showcased alongside international houses such as Louise Gray, Iceberg and James Long. Pret-a-porter clothing is displayed in March and October each year.
