The Imagine Appeal Clothes Throw 2011 - Event 1 - Wednesday

It's proved a huge success in previous years, so it's back this year:  The Clothes Throw 2011, in aid of of Alder Hey's Imagine Appeal.

I've just got home from Palm Sugar in Liverpool One, which hosted the launch of what is quite possibly the most stylish charity fundraiser Liverpool has to offer.

After being treated to Mojitos and tasty canapes (yes, fashionistas do eat!), tonight's first catwalk show featured forties style looks from Wade Smith, where tweed two pieces and sheer pussy bow blouses in bright jewel tones were paired with classic black and charcoal. 

Then came a hair and make up tutorial from Liz and Andrew Collinge, where the forties theme continued with an elegant two minute updo, and striking hollywood make up.

Next was Bullet Vintage; full skirted maxi dresses in sweet shop candy colours with sparkling embellishment, and a particularly fabulous cobalt blue number.

It was then the turn of acclaimed Liverpool designer, Kirsty Doyle, showing her trademark sculptural shapes and clean lines in a palette of purple hues.

The fabulous jewellery throughout, from Mawi, Erickson Beamon and Kenneth Jay Lane was courtesy of Benna at

Finally was the first celebrity auction of the event, where bidders fought for Chloe and Mulberry arm candy, a cuff designed by Karl Lagerfeld and a Temperley dress, to name but a few of the celebrity offerings.

Tomorrow and Friday's events will see two more auctions before the online auction goes live, so keep checking back this week for more about The Clothes Throw events as they happen!

Also see the next issue of His and Hers Magazine for more coverage of the event...
