The Brit Awards 2017 – FAULTless Bits

 

 

This year’s Brit Awards were in no shortage of talent. From Skepta‘s unreal performance to The 1975 winning Best British Group and Katy Perry making a political statement with her performance, the upcoming year in music seems brighter than it ever has.

Wham! made a touching tribute to George Michael and Chris Martin performed a secret duet with the late musician, which resulted in the evening’s most memorable and emotional moment.

FAULT was there to witness it all and here’s some of our highlights from inside the music industry’s biggest event of the year.

FAULT Alumni Little Mix opened the show with a futuristic and groundbreaking performance, joined on stage by over 100 backup dancers.

 

Katy Perry made a stir with her controversial mock-up of Theresa May and Donald Trump while one of her backup houses accidentally – walked – off stage.

The Chainsmokers debuted a brand new single with Coldplay that no one knew about.

Chris Martin carried on to pay a touching tribute to George Michael after the former members of Wham! took the stage to pay their respects to the late musician.

 

Robbie Williams closed the evening with a round-up of his most successful tunes.

Not to say that his performance was FAULTless – but we nearly didn’t notice the glitch that forced him to cheer the crowd into singing along. We still loved it Robbie.

 

As awards season is slowly simmering down, we can’t wait to see what 2018 will bring. This year, the abundance of talent was exhuberating and it definitely set the bar higher for the year to come.

Opening Ceremony Supports Emerging London Fashion Designers

The Opening Ceremony last night has finally marked the start of the London Olympic Games. It was not only an epic celebration of British history, culture and the coming together of sporting nations, but also an incredible platform for emerging local fashion talents. The British Fashion Council introduced East End based designers Christopher Shannon, Michael Van Der Ham and Nasir Mazhar to the ceremony’s creative director Suttirat Larlab, who commissioned the trio to create costumes for 350 dancers in a performance that represented the influence of present and future British creatives in youth culture. BCF’s chief executive Caroline Rush said of the event-

“Our events and initiatives support and strengthen the UK’s reputations for developing design excellence. There could not be a more outstanding showcase for this talent than the Olympics, and we are delighted to have played a small part in showing the best of Great Britain’s creative talent.”

Other British designers involved in the opening ceremony were Jonathan Saunders who dressed Emeli Sande, Matt Helders of the Arctic Monkeys wore Christopher Shannon during their performance, and Palmer//Harding and Richard James produced clothing for the flag bearers.
