EXCLUSIVE IN­TER­VIEW Mum-of-one Ale­sha Dixon tells No.1' s Rosie how

No. 1 Magazine - - NEWS -

It’s easy to for­get that Ale­sha has been in show­biz for over 17 years. From per­form­ing in girl group Mis-teeq, to a solo ca­reer, win­ning Strictly Come Danc­ing, be­com­ing a judge on the show, then jump­ing ship to be a long-stand­ing judge on Bri­tain’s Got Tal­ent, the star has cer­tainly ex­pe­ri­enced it all. No.1’ s Rosie chat­ted to Ale­sha at the Scot­tish Fash­ion Awards to hear all about her cloth­ing line and her ca­reer as a per­former...

Hi Ale­sha! How did it feel to be at the Scot­tish Fash­ion Awards celebrating all things Scot­tish style? You know, I love fash­ion and ev­ery­thing that comes with it so it’s fab­u­lous to be here and meet with so many tal­ented peo­ple. I think some­times it can go un­no­ticed, you know, how much ef­fort ac­tu­ally goes into creat­ing the beau­ti­ful out­fits we get the op­por­tu­nity to wear. So it’s lovely that we can recog­nise and cel­e­brate peo­ple within the fash­ion in­dus­try.

What do you love most about fash­ion? I think it would have to be, get­ting the chance to re­ally ex­press your­self. No mat­ter who you are, what you do, you can of­ten tell a lot about a per­son by what they are wear­ing – which I think is amaz­ing. As a woman, I also just love the girly, fem­i­nine as­pect that fash­ion brings. It’s a great bond­ing sub­ject for my daugh­ter and I too, so that’s al­ways nice.

Do you give your daugh­ter fash­ion ad­vice? Well, she’s a bit young to prop­erly take in any of my ad­vice but of course I’ll try! She’s funny though, like most kids prob­a­bly are – she knows what she wants to wear most of the time, so some­times it’s a strug­gle try­ing to change her mind!

Ale­sha says her daugh­ter, Azura, is in­ter­ested in singing, danc­ing and fash­ion, just like mummy.
