London Fashion week comes to Manchester

London Fashion week comes to Manchester

Fashionistas in Manchester could be in with a chance of experiencing London Fashion Week (20 – 24 February 2015) on their doorstep, thanks to a partnership between M&S and the British Fashion Council.

 

On Thursday 26 February, M&S will host an exclusive fashion event at its Market Street store, bringing the style and glamour of the world renowned Fashion Week to the North.

 

Manchester is the first city that has taken London Fashion Week outside of the capital and we are looking forward to showing customers what they might be wearing come the Autumn as well as presenting the best of our own Spring/Summer 15 collections on a live catwalk

 

M&S Style Director Belinda Earl will present the company’s Spring/Summer 15 collections via three catwalk shows at 1pm, 4pm and 6:30pm featuring local models. Exclusive video footage of highlights from the London Fashion Week AW15 catwalks will also be shown at the event.

 

The activity marks M&S becoming an Official Sponsor of London Fashion Week having been a patron of its organisers, the British Fashion Council, for many years.

 

The aim is to make London Fashion Week more accessible to the general public across the UK, giving more people the chance to see the catwalk action. Manchester is the first place outside London to receive this exclusive event.

 

Belinda Earl, Style Director at M&S, said:

 

“London Fashion Week is one of the biggest events in the fashion calendar and so we wanted to do something in collaboration with British Fashion Council to mark our involvement. Manchester is the first city that has taken London Fashion Week outside of the capital and we are looking forward to showing customers what they might be wearing come the Autumn as well as presenting the best of our own Spring/Summer 15 collections on a live catwalk, showcasing innovations and the quality M&S is known for.”

 

Those interested in attending the exclusive event can register their interest by emailing graylingnorth@grayling.com no later than Monday 23rd February.

 

Tickets are also available via giveaways with selected partners around the city.
