Fashion tour hits Cabot Circus

Stylish Bristolians can enjoy a weekend of free catwalk shows at Cabot Circus on 24 – 25 September, celebrating hot trends for Autumn 2011.

The ‘Autumn/Winter Fashion Tour’ is being held in association with the British Fashion Council and will bring together the best of the high street and designer brands to showcase leading looks from the new season.

With catwalks in Cabot Circus and Quakers Friars and 11 shows over the weekend, the fashion extravaganza will feature retailers from across the centre and show shoppers how to make the new trends work for them, whatever your taste or budget.

The week of fashion will kick off with a showcase of Bristol’s brightest new design talent, as fashion students from UWE exhibit their final year collections on mannequins around the Cabot Circus catwalk from 19 - 23 September.  

On Thursday 22 September, House of Fraser will host an exclusive fashion preview event at Showcase Cinema de Lux. Visitors will be treated to a drinks reception, one-to-one style advice and a fashion show, featuring brands including Biba and Label Lab. House of Fraser is also inviting shoppers to enter a competition to win a style makeover worth £250, and star in the VIP event to show off their new look.

As the weekend of free catwalk performances begins, savvy shoppers will be able to enjoy discounts of up to 20 per cent at many of Cabot Circus’ iconic stores and restaurants, using a special discount voucher book that will be handed out during the weekend.  

Visitors can also indulge in free taster treatments at the ‘pamper lounge’, where experts from House of Fraser, Harvey Nichols, Sanctuary Spa and hairdresser Seanhanna will be on hand to treat shoppers and talk through the latest hair and beauty trends.
