Gunwharf Quays is bringing visitors ‘Closer to Fashion' this spring with a spectacular catwalk event from Friday 18th-20th May.
Working in partnership with Glorious Goodwood, the three day event inspired by a day at the races will showcase the latest collections from some of Gunwharf Quays' top fashion outlets to help inspire shoppers with the latest trends and offers.
Kicking off the ‘Closer to Fashion' event will be a vintage catwalk show on Friday 18th at 7pm organised and produced by students from the University of Portsmouth as part of their Creative Writing and Drama degree.
Sarah Packer, one of the students taking part in the project comments: "We're so grateful to be given the opportunity to join in with the ‘Closer to Fashion' event as it's great experience for us to work behind the scenes and learn about event management- we hope everyone will come and support us and that they enjoy the show!"
The main event will then start at 11am in Central Square on Saturday 19th with catwalk shows taking place every hour until 4pm and then again from 11.30am to 4pm on Sunday 20th. All visitors that attend the catwalk shows will be offered exclusive discounts for Goodwood's race calendar, as well as the chance to win race tickets.
Gunwharf Quays will also be welcoming fashion expert and stylist JP Hevey who will be on hand to give colour and style advice at free drop-in sessions over the weekend.
"It can be tricky choosing clothes that suit your body shape and skin tone so I'll be sharing my top styling tips and advice for all fashion dilemmas says JP, fashion expert. "If you need any help or inspiration with your wardrobe woes come and visit me for some honest, free advice to get your look back on track!"
The popular ‘Love Southsea' boutique market will also be showcasing a collection of wonderful items in Central Square where shoppers will discover antiques, hand-made jewellery and unique clothing.
Peter Emery, Director of Gunwharf Quays, comments; "We are very excited about the Closer to Fashion weekend at Gunwharf - it really is a must for anyone who is excited about fashion or who would like help and advice on creating a new look.
