Hucknall fashion designer Kiley Evans has seen yet another of her creations grace the small screen.

Kiley was called in at the last minute to design a necklace to be worn by Alesha Dixon on the programme Your Face Sounds Familiar.

She got the call on the Tuesday, designed and made the necklace on the Wednesday, put it in the post on the Thursday ready for screentests on the Friday and it was displayed on primetime TV on the Saturday.

“It was all a bit crazy really but it was great to be asked to do it,” said Kiley.

“They had seen some of the designs on my Facebook page and asked me to design a necklace that matched the gladiator-style shoes that Alesha was going to wear.”

Kiley is originally from Swansea and is married to Ryan Pearson. She has always been intrigued by fashion and studied initially at New College Nottingham.

This August she is combining her dance and fashion interests by having a Fashion Dance Show Social Evening.

Suitable for all the family, the show will include outstanding dance talents who have won multiple World, European and British championships, and creations worn by celebrities.

Dancers are travelling from all over the UK and Ireland to perform at the event, which takes place at Kirkby’s Festival Hall on August 24th.

Kiley said: “It is set to be a fantastic show of mesmerising dance and creative outfits. People can email me at or view my page on Facebook for details.”
