Bumper fashion week is a runway winner!By Lorna Catling
September 17, 2008
Traipsing off to Paris or Milan for the sake of fashion would be unrealistic for most people but luckily Bracknell’s own fashion week is about to start.
There will be daily catwalk shows, hair and beauty demonstrations and performances during the week, which starts on Thursday, September 25.
Leggy models will showcase outfits from Ted Baker, Coast, Principles, New Look and Topshop.
And any fashion fans who attend the shows and pick up a show guide will be treated to £10 of vouchers to spend in any shop featured during the week.
Helen Barnett, marketing manager for Bracknell Regeneration Partnership (BRP), said: “We’re very excited to be hosting Bracknell Fashion Week again this year.
“It’s a fantastic event with daily catwalk shows that are tailored to suit a wide range of tastes and showcases fashions for men, women and kids from leading high street brands, Bracknell’s independent shops and designer brands.
“The shows will be bigger and better than last year with the catwalk situated downstairs in Princess Square, so there’s plenty of room for everyone to enjoy the show.
“Bracknell has a lot to offer and fashion week is the perfect opportunity to showcase what’s available in the town centre in an exciting, high-energy and fun event for everyone.”
As part of the week, the Grange Hotel will host a wedding fair on Sunday, September 28, from 11am until 4pm.
The fair will feature bridal dresses, groom suits, cakes, jewellery, photographers and music.
