Hundreds of fashion lovers took the chance to see collections from the likes of French Connection.


Returning for a second year the Pure Preston Fashion Event has grown to take place in multiple venues across the city.

Organised by local photographer Simon Rawsthorn said brand likes French Connection had chosen to showcase their Oxford Street London high end range outside London for the first time.

He said: “The fact that a brand such as French Connection would consider to showcase this collection from London here in Preston is testament to how they felt the event went for them last year and again this raises the profile for this event in Preston and hopefully will encourage other retailers to follow suit next year.”
