UPDATE FROM MIDLANDS FASHION AWARDS
“We have been closely following the updates from the government in light of COVID-19, and today (25th March 2020) have made the tough decision to cancel the October 2020 edition of the Midlands Fashion Awards.
The decision was made after careful consideration by the team as the health and safety of our partners, participants, visitors, volunteers and everyone involved remains our top priority. We however plan to returnin 2021 and will confirm dates as soon as possible.
In the meantime, we wish you well and hope you keep safe in this extraordinary and difficult time
