UR UR is a clothing line dedicated to creating a positive conversation around mental health. Created by Dominic and Sheila Byrne; it's goal is to create a positive experience for those who choose to wear clothing that makes a direct impact on changing lives for the better. Our clothing is designed to be comforting and uplifting, to help our followers understand that they are in control of their mental health and when they look in the mirror they look good and feel good. The UR journey began following Sheila's nervous breakdown in 2016. Formally a fun loving; keep fit fanatic, Sheila's personality seemingly changed in an instant. Gone were the smiles, the laughter and craving to use the gym, replaced by a sense of nothingness, fear, desperation, sadness and lack of emotion. For nearly two years suicidal thoughts, lack of self-worth and a total loss in confidence meant Sheila struggled to leave the house, let alone continue the actvie fun loving life she once knew. Through her own determination and self development, Sheila recognised the power of surrounding herself with positive people, being in positive environments and wanted to help others. This is when Dominic and Sheila came up with the idea of providing a positive, inspirational environment where others struggling to see any light at the end of the tunnel would be given hope..... UR amazing, UR enough and the more you see it, the more you feel it, the better you will feel. From the very beginning, Dom and Sheila pledged to donate 50% of the profit made from the sale of every garment to Hope St Mental Health Support Group in Ormskirk,

BE UNIQUE BE YOU I am proud to be presenting a collection at Liverpool Fashion Show for my second year in a row. I have only been sewing for the past 4 years and am self-taught. My grand daughter was offered to shoot on location with an amazing photographer and I decided to make her costume myself, this is where it all began. My couture children swear pieces are unique and I never make the same piece twice. I can be asked to produce anything from an anchor or a mermaid to a formal gown for a red carpet. I never use patterns for my designs as I prefer a free-style of creating and they can include any number of techniques within one garment, as you will see with the collection I will be showcasing which is stunning, captivating and glamorous for the smallest of wearer.
BETHANY HILTON Bethany has passion for colour and print with an attention to detail and quality, with a focus on interesting print methods and unique yet wearable silhouettes. With a debut at graduate fashion week at the beginning of June, Bethany aims to portray a sultry elegance through her work, alongside original prints and fresh silhouettes.Derived from the German term, meaning a longing to travel to a place where you feel at home, her debut collection ‘Heimweh’ looks at traditional nomadic qualities in a contrast to a modern society. Exploring the time-honoured lifestyle, the pulls of life and a new evolution of nomads, driving the urge to re-nature and trust our instinct in, the tech driven world of today. She considered everyday tasks, silhouettes and inanimate objects of the nomadic people to inspire shape and structure whilst acquiring fabric and colour inspiration from their authentic surroundings. She developed print and colour through exploring a personal meaning to travel and global movement, her print design represents grid mapping throughout her own life, reflecting on a modern nomadic quality.Inspired by this way of life, and the idea of how nomadic societies affix possessions to their own body’s and animals when moving, Bethany explored the idea of clipping elements on to the body- merging garments with accessories to develop interchangeable looks, highlighting the notion of bundling belongings and activity.
