Belfast Fashionweek is to celebrate 10 years of showcasing the best of Northern Irish style with its busiest programme to date.

To coincide with three nights of catwalk shows, the fashion event will take place in a new venue – a converted warehouse in Bruce Street in the heart of the city.

And style queens looking for their new season fashion fix will also be able to attend a charity screening of Mean Girls, which also marks 10 years since its cinema release. Proceeds will go to local charity Pretty 'n' Pink, whose founder Noleen Adair passed away earlier this year.

Speaking at West Coast Cooler Fashionweek launch, director Cathy Martin said: "We'll be showcasing the best of our local designers and independent boutiques as well as international high street names. This autumn the catwalk will be a sea of colour, style and must-have fashion."

Fashionweek will kick off on October 15, with the charity showing of Mean Girls.

The following day the catwalk shows get under way, featuring the latest looks from Ireland's largest online retailer, which will bring top designer names such as Armani, Calvin Klein and Boss Orange to the runway as well as fashion brands such as French Connection and Ted Baker.

On Friday, October 17, Fashionweek's new event Fashion Friday will see Skype's global fashion ambassador and international fashion blogger Sonya Esman along with local blogger Tiffany Brien take part in a Q&A session.

The full show schedule is available online at along with details of this season's trends.
