Flame International Anniversary Fashion and Art Festival At The Horseguards Hotel London 23rd November 2019
It was just 3 months ago that Yana Flame hosted her astounding successful Fashion and Art Festival at the prestigious Horseguards Hotel central London. It was now time again for Yana to relight her Flame and celebrate her Anniversary Awards show at the same venue to celebrate a year of exciting young international fashion designers collections,performers and up and coming new models.
The black tie event promised to be one of the highlights of the fashion year, and it did not disappoint. The event began with guests arriving from influencers of the fashion, art and show business industries, TV celebrities, media and magazine companies.
Certainly a great evening and opportunity for all to network with like minded people, The room was a sellout audience lining both sides of the catwalk excited and ready to enjoy one of the hottest events in the year.
VIP Guests were invited Piers Corbyn Meteorologist,Stephen Young Lord of Westbury and Lady Anna, Oliver Smiles Actor, Bob Phrophite Film maker, Scott Matthews Actor, Bryanne Mcintosh-Melvine, Simon Reeves, Elizabeth and Keith
Wheatley, Andres Monsalve, Surasak Heebtim, Joanne Ela Karg, Bruno Aleph Wizard, Kate Digman, Fifi Russels, Jonathan Graham, Kimberly Grahame, Stefano Bellino, Roger Castano, and much more.
Once again awards were to be given out to the top model and top designers of which were judged by a host of celebrity judges; Stephen Young Lord of Westbury businessman patron and ambassador of 7 charities, Dave Gentry Head Judge Champion martial arts trainer to film stars, Phillip Salon Top London event organiser and style innovator,, Eugene Ankomah visual artist, and Kamay Lau Celebrity actress fashion designer and stylist model, Mark Fowler creative New romantic stylist, Ann Pendigrast fashionista and stylist.
During the show the guests were entertained by numerous vocalists and instrumentalists. I have to applaud Yana Flames ability to find such talented artists whose performances were totally outstanding and who could grace any Royal Gala Performance show at the London Palladium.
At the start of the show I was talking to someone with what I thought was a Frank Sinatra cd playing in the background, until I noticed a guy called Stanley Volk who is a Sinatra tribute singer, absolutely smashed his set.
Next up whilst the models were gracing the catwalk was opera singer Sophia Tselepidou from the Greek and German philharmonic theatre totally outstanding performances that gave you goose bumps all over.
Next up was a lady called Aleisha who played electric violin. Wow, had to be the performance of the night for me, her skill and musical tone was simply amazing and made more spectacular by her flashing bra underneath her white blouse.
There were other artists on the night Katie B and Elizabeh De Bransor, Angel McKenzie, Letitia Antoinette Kapuscinska who were also amazing but these 3 were by far world class acts.
Onto the fashion show hosted by Yana Flame herself and compared by the lovely Deborah Jay Kelli.
The models showcasing the fashion collections were plenty, no shortage of young talented beautiful, graceful and professional artists at the top of their trade art by Yana Flame, Marta Chorostowska and Anna Mazzotta.
First up of the collections was Yana Flame Queen Couture. We had seen some of the collection at the previous festival, but Yana had been working hard over the last 3 months bringing out classy new evening designs that had the audience rising to their feet, applauding the pure brilliance of her new exciting work.
Next up was the lingerie collection from fashion designer Angelina Kali. Sheer elegance of lace and satin decorated by Swarovski crystals to bring out the curvaceous beauty of the models. The designs were high class, elegant, beautiful and i am sure will take the lingerie high street market by storm.
Young Designer ‘Nataly design’ from Denmark who participated at Yana’s festival in Italy, showcased her second haute couture collection which definitely caught the eye of the Judges.
Young designers Rolle by Rolle showcased their creative outstanding jeans collection accompanied by the famous Russian Rock singer Angel McKenzie that absolutely rocked the runway.
The night was coming to a close, but before the awards were handed out to deserving top model and top fashion designers, Yana Flame auctioned off one of her very first artistic paintings for charity. The oil painting done by pallet knives techniques was of icon Marilyn Monroe. The bidding was intense between 2 people which started from £50 and then the winning bidder stood up and shouted £500, and that was it won by actor and entrepreneur Scott Matthews. The amazing amount raised would be going to helping in supporting and sponsoring young talents for future Flame Festivals.
Now to the awards, the Winner Flame Top Model of The Year Award presented by the Lord of Westbury Stephan Young went to Angelina Kali. This was no surprise as her grace, beauty, style elegance and professionalism were something to behold, truly stunning and well deserved by far.
