  2. I want to win because I love fashion and it looks like a really fun prize. I am currently studying A level textiles, and I think this day out would be a really useful and helpful experience, which I could use to give me ideas to improve my own work. I am also an aspiring model, so would love to have the opportunity to go to one of the Masterclass lessons and gain some proffessional advice and guidence. And last but not least, I LOVE PETE AND WANT TO SEE HIM!!! <3 <3 Thank you Katie and Adele for this chance to win, fingers crossed you pick me :) xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

  3. I'd LOVE to win! I've wanted to go since I was a child! I remember watching it on the telly when I was little and thinking 'Wow, I'd love to actually be there'... I'm 30 now so that was probably right at the beginning of The Clothes Show Live - I can even picture the woman who presented it back them but can't remember her name!! I've never actually been though and would love to :)
    Fab comp girls :) Also, I'm new to following you blog so am looking forward to reading all your posts :)

  4. I'd absolutely love to win this, I've always been obsessed with the idea of going to The Clothes Show Live, but I've never been able to go. I love everything fashion, and this would truly be a dream come true, and an absolute treat for me and my best friend! (also wants to go desperately) This is a great competition, thanks so much for holding it :) xx

  5. Hi girls..:)

    This is such an amazing prize, the main reason I would love to win these tickets is because from just starting blogging this year, I feel like a new person. The confidence I have gained from reading blogs and making friends in the blogger community is enormous. I have never attended the clothes show live and knowing that the likes of Amy Childs, Gemma Collins and the one and only Peter Andre are going to be there just takes my breathe away, busy day out for Can Assosiates Ltd. All in all this would be the perfect end to my first year of blogging. After all, this time last year I would have not had the courage or confidence to attend something like this, so it an achievement in itself that I am excited about such an event.
    I would give the other ticket to one of my blog readers who were willing to come with me, as it would be the perfect opertunity to meet one of the girls who have suported me in my most exciting year so far.
    I would love to meet up with you two lovely ladies if you are attending and I was the lucky winner.

    Lots of love
    Hugs and Sparkles

  7. I would love to win Clothes Show tickets because i love all things fashion, Weather its shopping or watching fashion shows. My ultimate dream is to be a stylist and i looked at the website and there will be people talking about ways to become a stylist. This is something that will be really useful as I'm applying for uni and I'm not exactly sure if uni is the way to do what i want. I have been blogging since july and have become more and more confident in what im writing and the confidence i have gained which has allowed me to be able to share my blog with people i know is huge. As i have an obsession with clothes, having discounts on everything is going to be like heaven! I love to see a fashion show and what's on trend as the last one i saw was back in 2010 and it will be a great experience and something i will be able to relate either in future jobs or the fashion styling course I'm hoping to do at uni. Overall i think this will be a great experience and an absolute amazing day!

    If i do win this prize, id love to meet you girls if you're planning on going. Which would be amaaaaaaazing!!

  8. OMG! Hi:) I'd love to win these tickets because me and my friend parveen would love a girly day out:) We have never experienced anything as big as this together and we both love fashion. This would be the perfect day out for us as we are bestfriends and we'd tell everyone at school what it was like the next day. My mom got vip tickets to this, like 10 years ago and she told be it was fantastic. I think i deserve to go because I love the idea of modelling and the catwalk is an amazing thing to see. All the outfits and beauty advice is sooo my thing. My mom is making me earn the money if i was to buy tickets, and with the amount of money i get, it would take months and all the tickets would be gone:( Anyway, Aaah clothes show live! Fangirling, hehe! Thanks so much for letting us have the chance to win these. And good luck to everybody. Thanks :)♥♥♥ @rosiejedward

  10. I want/deserve to win these tickets SO much because, I would love to an attend an event like this, I've always heard such good things said about 'Clothes Show Live' ... & I hear it's a good day out to have. Obviously, everyone must know by now that I have a little obsession (which I call dedication) towards Peter Andre (like yourself, haha) and when I heard he was going, I was like "Ahhh I must go" then I saw this blog post and knew I had to enter!

    As I have my own blog, this would be a post I could do based on the day out and experience I have from "Clothes Show Live". I LOVE reading people's experiences of different things, so hopefully somebody will be able to read mine!

    Thanks for this amazing opportunity to win these tix!
    Go on, make my day & make me your winner ;-) surely I deserve to win <3 ( well I think so anyway)
