Gok Wan can't wait to bring his fashion show to Cardiff

 

Celebrity stylist and TV presenter Gok Wan is bringing his newest fashion venture to Cardiff on Saturday, April 29, with his Fashion Brunch Club.

Ladies who brunch will be treated to an up-close and personal experience with the man himself, benefiting from his years as a fashion guru to millions of women.

Taking place in New House Country Hotel in Cardiff from 11am - 3pm, the day will combine a five-star brunch and plenty of bubbles (yes, prosecco) with two fashion shows featuring spring/summer lines from local boutiques and designers.

There will also be a body-shape masterclass, a Q&A session with Gok and one lucky lady will even be given a Gok-style make-over, aptly named the “mother of all makeovers”.

Gok said: "I am absolutely thrilled to bring my Fashion Brunch Clubs to so many great places this year and hope that people will take the chance to get all my fashion tips in a more intimate setting.

"There will be something for everyone’s taste.

“We will have 140 outfits on the catwalk, so there will be a lot of visual shopping going on.

"A body shape masterclass which is exactly what I do on television and then we’ll be giving one lady the mother of all makeovers and that will just be someone we choose randomly from the audience.

"Then at the end of the second catwalk show, she’ll be revealed. And when I mean the ‘mother of all makeovers’ I mean hair, makeup and everything else. Who doesn’t love a makeover?"

Gok believes Cardiff has a lot to offer to the fashion world

“The brunch is a celebration of all things, especially local fashion. What we mean by that is, we have the whole day to have a glamorous time but most importantly we go into different areas of Cardiff and use local designers and local makeup.

"There are pockets like this of fashion all over the country, it doesn’t always have to be about London.

“There are really talented people who get no lime light, don’t get a spot at London fashion week, so it’s a real celebration of them, it’s very positive."

“Cardiff has it’s own identity when it comes to fashion. It has a large vintage community as well as a young population, because of the universities, who want to expand with their look.

"I would say Cardiff fashion overall is slightly more relaxed than some places and slightly more unique than others.

“We made sure we were covering as much of the country as possible and we wanted to go further afield than just going to Manchester or London.

"When I think of Wales, Cardiff is the first place I think of and it’s that Celtic blood too. I just know when I come to Cardiff the audience is going to really get involved and have fun.”

And which Welsh girls shout at style to Gok?

“I don’t really follow celebrity fashion but a Welsh person who springs to mind for me is probably Katherine (Jenkins). She loves the contours and the curves so I would have to say her.”

Gok and his team have hand picked the stores they are featuring in the fashion brunch, and to satisfy Cardiff’s love of retro there will be a “vintage edge” to the clothing.

“We had to steer away from using vintage stores because they have one off pieces and it wouldn’t be fair to the ladies if they were all fighting over one item,” he said laughing.

What will the shows cover?

By popular demand, the two fashion shows will cover all basis from lingerie to bridal to classic occasion wear and even slightly more casual looks.

However, despite the elegant brunch and hoards of clothing Gok believes that the body-shape masterclass is when the audience really joins in and becomes a part of the show.

“When we do the body-shape masterclass that’s when the audience comes alive,” he said.

“People are screaming from the audience and we get people on stage. That’s the part where people become more vocal because everyone can relate to it, everyone has a body.

“Understanding your body is really important,” Gok added.

“We have to have a relationship with our body. There will always be bits you don’t like and bits you do like showing off but ultimately people want to find confidence in themselves and look their best.”

Audience participation and reactions to transformations are what has made Gok’s TV shows and events so memorable and heartwarming, and it is what he believes makes the day so fun.

“I really love the stories you hear from women. The minute you scratch beneath the surface, everyone has got a back-story and with the makeovers especially, when you see them transform it’s amazing.

“You get a real mixture of reactions, a lot of women just can’t believe their eyes and then there are the ones that just start screaming and shouting as if there aren’t 200 people in the room with them. The reactions are always fun,” he said.

Can I still get tickets?

Tickets are already on sale but have not sold out just yet, and Gok encourages any woman who wants a fun and fabulous day out to come along.Read more at:formal dresses adelaide | marieaustralia
