What we've done..
Jacksons Fashion Hollyoaks Dress raised £431 for Children in Need after I wore a dress featuring memories from Hollyoaks to the 18 year anniversary party and all the cast signed it. I've worked at Hollyoaks for several years now and have always loved the show. It was a pleasure to create the dress and wear it but even better that the cast got involved and it went to a good cause. Images can be found on our Facebook page.
I was beyond honoured to be asked to Design a swimwear range for Sin Sundays at Ocean Beach Ibiza. I was approached by renowned DJ's Billie Clements and Chris Wright who are well known for their legendary Pool Parties and Boat Parties. The range was a huge success available to buy at Ocean Beach Ibiza. I am eternally grateful to both of them for encouraging and supporting me.
I was approached by LRFS to showcase Jacksons Fashion Designs at their prestigious show Feb 2015. I was honoured to be handpicked amongst Designers such as Adidas and Victoria Secret! I had such an amazing time getting involved and loved selecting and designing specific outfits for each scene. The theme was Through The Looking Glass. It was a spectacular evening and I couldn't be more proud. The show raised over £17,000 for the Richard Mayne Foundation and Leeds Mind Charity. You can check out images and clips of the show on our Facebook and instagram pages.
I often ask my customers to send pictures wearing Jacksons Fashion so I can put it on our social media sites. Imagine my surprise when a customer messages me back on ASOS and its Natalie Horler Cascada! She advised me the outfit she had purchased from me would be featured in her music video Madness. It was a massive achievement and I loved watching the video back and seeing her wearing Jacksons. Thank you Natalie.
I love the X Factor, my favourite part of the show is seeing what the judges wear, the dancers outfits and Brian Freedman's creative set design. So to be a part of all that was a dream come true. I was put in touch with Gemma Sheppard the head stylist who LOVED Jacksons Design. The more extravagant the better she told me. I watched the live shows and jumped out my seat when I spotted our long fringe chokers on TV. Blonde Electra also went on to wear our LED fairy light skirts on tour. Thanks Ladies.
My favourite and greatest achievement so far is showcasing Jacksons Fashion at The Very Big Catwalk. I love every moment of the process. Culture Liverpool/One Magnificant City and Very teamed up to showcase all the talent Liverpool has to offer and beat the world record for how many models on one catwalk at a time. 3651 models strutted their stuff and what an amazing day we had! Jacksons Fashion had a section showcasing our swimwear and I handpicked the most amazing models, we came away not only with a world record but with new friends for life. Images and clips can be viewed on our Facebook and Instagram pages.
Anyone who knows me knows the special place I have in my heart for Ibiza, I've visited the island a ridiculous 18 times (at last count) and its always been my dream to do a fashion show out there. In June 2017 this dream came true when I was invited to showcase Jacksons Fashion swimwear at Ibiza Fashion Festival. Huge thank you to Karen Windle for selecting my brand and having me at Es Vive. While I was out there 'on business' I also shot some promo images at Tropicana Coast Suites in Playa Den Bossa with Danny DeSantos. Another goal of mine. I'm looking forward to working in Ibiza in the future as its a massive influence into my brand and what my designs are about.
Since I was a little girl I always wanted to go to The Clothes Show in Birmingham and for some reason or another I never quiet made it to Birmingham. 2017 marked the debut of The British Style Collective here in Liverpool, brought to us by The Clothes Show. The moment I heard the announcement I knew Jacksons would play a part in it. Three days stood at an exhibitors stand meeting all of you lovely customers and taking orders face to face was an absolute pleasure. What was a major proud moment for me over the weekend was seeing my designs on stage at The Echo Arena! As part of the Alcatel Fashion Theatre the models and dancers showcased Jacksons Fashion to a room of roughly 10,000 people. Thank you so much to Karl Willett and Adele Pendleton for using my designs and a MASSIVE thank you to Jane Galpin for believing in me and my brand.
On to the next step.. ;-)
