As the chilly winter days finally slip away a major fashion extravaganza will take place in Swindon to highlight the new range of spring styles that are freshly arriving in town centre shops.
The Essential Style Show will be staged at the Brunel Plaza onSaturday, 27 March, from 12noon to showcase the latest fads, trends and tastes that will dominate the 2010 Spring Season.
A series of prizes will also be up for grabs at the five-hour event, courtesy of several town centre shops – including a fabulous, seven-night holiday for two in Florida which has been offered by Thomas Cook.
The latest chic lines for women, men and youngsters will be displayed by a handful of professional models – one man, two women and two children – during five slick, 30-minute shows, starting at noon. After each display, which will involve an entertaining choreographed dance routine, a professional stylist will discuss the items that have been modelled with members of the public. The discussion will focus on up-to-the-minute styles, what’s “in” for the new season, body shape issues and will involve tips to the audience on new key looks and colours.
In between the shows other Brunel Centre retailers will provide demos, makeovers, and tasters for shoppers.
Manager of the Brunel Centre Tony Wilkes said: “This is going to be a fantastic day for town centre shoppers. The event will mix entertainment with models. Visually, it will be a knock-out. The new range of spring fashion always creates a lot of interest and excitement. This year will be no exception. And after such a cold winter it will be intriguing to see what new and vibrant fashions will be all the rage for the coming months.
“It’s always fascinating to see what the country’s finest designers have come up with. It’s not just for women either, but for fashion-conscious men and children as well. People will be able to see what the models are wearing and buy these items which have arrived fresh in the Brunel Centre stores.”
One of the organisers May Kan said: “What’s really appealing and special about the show is that the public will be drawn into the event with question and answer sessions.
Anything they want to know about new season, they can ask a professional. This way, shoppers can style their way to an effortless and complete up-to-date image.”
