Get ready for a month packed with fashion, beauty and wellbeing brought to you in partnership by inSwindon BID, The Brunel Shopping Centre, The Parade and Regent Circus from 1-31 May.
Love Fashion Live will feature lots of free activities along with fashion and beauty must-haves, fitness experiences, competitions and giveaways all available from national and independent stores across the town centre.
The event first took place at The Brunel Shopping Centre in 2018 and featured retailers including Boots, LUSH, M&S and House of Fraser as well as local independents. For 2019, town centre partners are working in collaboration to showcase the amazing fashion and beauty offering across the town centre.
The month-long campaign kicks off with a free Fashion and Beauty Pop-Up, taking place at The Parade on Saturday 4th May, 11-4:30pm. Featuring beauty stations and a personal stylist on site to give advice on the latest fashions available in the town centre, there will also be an online competition to win a personal shopper experience.
The highlight of the campaign will be the Love Fashion Live Style Night on Friday 10th May, 6:30-9:30pm at CitiFaith on Regent Street. Live fashion shows will inspire you to try something new and introduce some of the new season trends available from retailers across the town centre. Beauty and fashion must-haves will also be on hand offering free demos and products to try and buy, all under one roof. Guests will also receive exclusive offers to use across the town centre on Saturday 11th & Sunday 12th May. General tickets are priced at £6. VIP tables can also be purchased.
inSwindon BID CEO, Di Powell said, “We are all really excited about this event. Through this collaboration with our shopping centres, we are able to build on last year’s brilliant event and showcase Love Fashion Live throughout the whole town centre. We have over 80 national and independent fashion and beauty retailers and this is something to be proud of. I would encourage everyone to take advantage of the great shopping experience, the offers and events and show their passion for shopping local in Swindon town centre.”
The Brunel’s Personalisation Station will return for a second year on Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th May on the Upper Plaza. Here you’ll find free make-up, fragrance and skin demos to take your look from day-to-night or prepare for that special occasion - your next selfie is just waiting to happen!
A Secret Style evening will take place on Monday 20th May from 7pm at The Crossing and offer some of the key trends, tips and goody bags, as well as some real-life transformations. The Brunel is looking for nominations from across the town of people who deserve a hair, beauty and style makeover as part of the Secret Style event. Tickets are £5.
