20 Jun Kiss Me Kate SS18 hits the catwalk for charity as Elite Fashion Show returns to Birmingham
When you think fashion, you often think of Paris, Milan or even London, but all eyes will be on Birmingham this summer when models take to the catwalk on Sunday 25th June for the third annual Elite Fashion Show.
Growing year on year, the prestigious event has attracted some of the world’s finest up-and-coming designers, as it raises thousands of pounds for charitable causes.
The brainchild of former Mr Birmingham Joshua Williams, the event will host national and international designers, as they showcase a selection of their stellar designs.
As well as providing the designers a catwalk for their new seasonal numbers, top models will be strutting their stuff alongside professional artists and performers at the sell-out event which aims to raise £1,000 for Birmingham-based charity Love Brum, which distributes funds to local good causes voted for by supporters.

There will also be performances from Pitch Battle star Connor McKenna and international dancer Shelley Anderson, and appearances from First Dates‘ Danny Bennett, Big Brother celeb Mark Byron, top fashion blogger Loren Green; and celebrity hairstylist Jamie Birmingham.

Organiser Joshua, 19, said: “The show is still keen to hold its status as Birmingham’s premier fashion show. In previous years our designers have gone on to feature in Paris Fashion Week and London Fashion Week.
“This year is set to be bigger than ever with a host of celebrity guests and renowned international performers. The show appeals to much more than just those interested in fashion.”
