Latest trends and fashions are to be strutted across Preston during the return of the city’s Fashion Week.


Two major events are taking place at two venues during the fashion shows.

Running from 6.30pm there’s a canape and drinks reception. Catwalk starts at 7.30pm. Tickets are £15.99 and the event is supporting St Catherine’s Hospice.

A number of fringe events then take place throughout the following days showing the best in Preston and UK fashion brands.

The main event is the catwalk show in Evoque nightclub on Saturday 8 October.

French Connection are headlining the event from 12noon, with catwalks from 12.45pm to 4.30pm. Tickets are £5.90 or a VIP ticket is £15.99.

Simon Rawsthorn from Pure Management is organising the fashion event.

He said: “There’s a lot of talent here in Preston and the surrounding area, so I think we can compete with Manchester and Liverpool to show off what we can do.”

Simon said they were still looking for an additional sponsor so the Saturday catwalk shows can be made free entry to the public. Anyone who is interested can email
