If the recent collections from Paris, London and Milan during their fashion weeks blew die-hard clothes horses away, then they may want to take a trip to one of our beloved Home Counties.

Because yesterday, it wasn't about the Chanels, Diors, Largerfelds and Givencys of the world, but a pretty redhead we know and love called Amy Childs.

And so who else to kick start Essex Fashion Week than the 21-year-old as she took to the catwalk to show off her latest clothing collection.

Amy was snapped at the CEME Conference Centre in Rainham where she was showing off her new line.

And just like when she debuted the collection in Camden, north London last month, Amy stunned the audience as she joined her models to show off her designs on the runaway.

And she looked in her element as she strutted along in some of her creations which included a bright yellow dress and a sparkly playsuit.

She also showed off a strapless white dress with a ballerina style tutu skirt and another outfit which consisted of a stripey skirt and polka dot top.

And in true Essex style, she then came out in an outfit which had taken inspiration from one of the well known catchphrases from her former reality TV show.

She wore a pair of pink and leopard print leggings, with a white T-shirt emblazoned with the slogan Well Jel.

Pulling the top out for all to see, Amy dressed the look up with a pair of obligatory heels with sexy spikes.

Cheering her on from the front row was her cousin Harry Derbidge, who took to his Twitter page to announce how excited he was to be there.

And Amy too had a good day as she posted on her wall on the social networking site: 'Had the best day at #essexfashionweek everyone loved my collection xxx'

Wheh she first launched the range in London last month, she said: 'I
am so happy with my Spring/Summer 2012 Clothing Collection – there’s
something for all women and this range has some gorgeous bright colours
which are perfect for the summer months.

'I hope that everyone loves
them as much as I do.'
