Market sets out stall for fashion show
Hats, high street and high end fashion will be on show at St George’s Market later this month in a two-day extravaganza of style.
The historic market will once again host the award-winning Magners Light Fall For Fashion event on September 29 and 30.
Top models from Style Academy will take to the catwalk for two shows.
The “Something Old, Something New” night will highlight the new season’s high street collections, as well as vintage couture.
Retailers include Oxfam Vintage, Oasis, Yoke, Jack and Jones, Vanilla in Lisburn and favourite high street stores within Victoria Square, such as Pepe Jeans, Clockwork Orange and Urban Outfitters.
The Deadly Designer event the following evening will celebrate local design talent as well as showcasing labels from Northern Ireland’s leading designer shops.
House of Fraser will mark the launch of Maryrose McGrath’s designs to their store and other retailers within Victoria Square will include Ted Baker, Cruise and Hobbs.
Critically acclaimed milliner Grainne Maher will show off her stunning hat designs while male fashion will be represented by Remus Uomo.
St Georges’ Market will be transformed into a London-style mini-Spitalfields, with traders selling jewellery, food and crafts.
Music will be provided by local singer/song-writer John D’Arcy and swing sensation Martin John.
Gavan Morris, Magners Light marketing manager, said: “The shows would be fabulous in any European city, but St George’s Market in the heart of Belfast will again provide a stunning backdrop for great new autumn looks and dazzlingly creative interpretation of fashion classics.”
Profits from both evenings will go to the Ulster Cancer Foundation.
Tickets for each night are £10 plus booking fee, available from Ticketmaster www.ticketmaster. co.uk, by phone on 08442774455, or from www.fallforfashion.com.
