Article 1.  London Fashion Networking Event Launch at Home House 24 October

London Fashion Networking Event launched at the plush private members club Home House, the launch was jointly organised by The Luxury Network and Maximize Promotions.  At the champagne reception stylish goody bags and media packs were presented to each guest on arrival.  The main aim of the event was to have luxury brands participating as sponsors or showcasing at the event promoting their product/service and, for fashion & entertainment industry professionals also people from corporate professions to connect with one another.

It was busy all evening and there was constant activity in each room at Home House particularly in the upstairs drawing rooms where fabulous items i.e celebrity memorabilia were displayed for a silent auction.  There were luxury fashion brands, complimentary massage therapy, herbal tea tasting and savoury/sweet canapes provided by Simply Fine Foods offered to guests.  The evening also comprised of a fashion/entertainment programme including a fashion show featuring the label ‘Aftershock' with models posing on the steps of the grand staircase.

I spoke to Russ Cane whom I've met before at other functions, Russ used to be the Capital FM ‘Flying Eye' Reporter while Chris Tarrant was a DJ at Capital.  Russ is currently managing and promoting a new girl band called Vanquish who performed their track at the event. It was also nice to meet The Cheeky Girls (Gabriela and Monica) who were in great shape looking super fit and toned.  They were at the event with their mother who manages The Cheeky Girls and their mother told me the twins were due to celebrate their birthday on 31 October same day as Halloween which she said was a funny coincidence because their family are originally from of Dracula!  The Cheeky Girls later performed their well known hit ‘Cheeky Song' when technical difficulties arose as the music system failed to operate properly but they carried on regardless with a smile and the twins did their signature cheeky ‘touch my bum' twirl.

A series of London Fashion Networking Events are planned for next year and the organisers will hold events in other countries creating more networking and business development opportunities globally.

Article 2.  Miss Clubs Grand Finals at Cafe de Paris - a charity fundraising event 2 November

After months of searching, twenty-one candidates were selected from some of Europe's top night clubs and invited to compete as finalists for the title of Miss Clubs at London's Cafe De Paris on 2nd November '11. The participating clubs were Pacha, Merah, Privee, Bond, Platinum Lace, Tibu, Papaya and three girls were chosen to represent each club.  Guests were also invited to vote for their favourite contestants by placing votes into boxes around the club.

Las Vegas showgirl hostesses ushered contestants on to the stage in groups of three whilst Julian Bennett (TV Presenter/socialite) hosted the evening with his usual saucy sense of humour. Julian playfully teased guests in the audience and pointed to a lady with a generous cleavage who blushed when he remarked "I'm a homosexual but I do love your tits!" Among the contestants were 3 lap dancers from Platinum Lace club and whilst parading on the catwalk, one of the girls tried to grab the audience and judges' attention by lifting her dress and revealing her bare about tongue n cheek!

Holly Croft representing Merah Club won the Miss Clubs title and was the lucky winner of good prizes including a modelling shoot for DV8 Magazine's Christmas front cover, a holiday for 2 to the International Miss Clubs 2012, London Fashion Week appearance, an invite to a red carpet film premiere and £1000 worth of Baci lingerie. There were also a number of runner-up prizes.

Miss Clubs was founded by Tony Baxter of Sincura Events and Lord Jason Scott in order to create ambassadors for lifestyle/fashion brands also to donate event proceeds to a charity in this case the Parachute Regiment charity. Hence this was not just a fun contest providing opportunities for young women wanting to break into the fashion/entertainment industries but also a charity fundraising event.

Article 3.  Fabulous Fireworks at Ravenscourt Park 5 November

The Ravenscourt Park Guy Fawkes Fireworks display with a fun fair and several food stalls has become a well established and hugely popular fireworks event organised by Hammersmith & Fulham council.  To encourage families with young children Ravenscourt Park organises a smaller fireworks display earlier in the evening especially for children.  Ravenscourt Park always stages one of the most impressive and thrilling pyrotechnic displays in London and watching dazzling fireworks sparkling in the night sky is exciting for both children and adults alike.

The festival of Guy Fawkes is so widely celebrated here in UK yet many people still aren't aware of the interesting history behind the annual event and that Guy Fawkes was a man whose wicked ‘Gun Powder Plot' to blow up the Houses of Parliament with other conspirators failed thus he was captured and executed.  To commemorate the failed attempt made by Guy Fawkes on 5 November 1605, traditional bonfire nights with burning effigies of Guy Fawkes have taken place since the 1600's. 

Children love to make their own Guy Fawkes effigies and collect money for fireworks "Penny for a Guy" which has long been a British tradition.  Bonfire night festivities have advanced over time with professionally organised commercial events at scenic parks and open spaces as well as people enjoying their own private celebrations with garden party fireworks.  BOOM BOOM POW!!!
