Dress rehearsal as models launch Belfast Fashionweek

By Patrice Dougan

Belfast’s most prestigious fashion event kicked off in style with gorgeous models showcasing the latest trends.

Celebrating its 12th season on the catwalk, Belfast Fashionweek will bring glamour and style to the city across four days in October.

The very best of the autumn/winter trends will be on display, as will a range of local and international designers and retailers taking part.

Launching the schedule for the series of fashion events and catwalk shows at Belfast’s Merchant Hotel rooftop garden yesterday, organiser Cathy Martin revealed she is expecting again.

It will be a hectic few months for the PR guru as she juggles morning sickness with models, clothes and make-up in the run-up to Northern Ireland’s most coveted fashion event.

She said: “We are pulling out all the stops for this season’s Fashionweek with some truly awesome days and nights planned.”

High street brands will be on the catwalk, as will the designer labels and the pick of some of Northern Ireland’s top shopping centres, CastleCourt and Victoria Square in Belfast and The Outlet in Banbridge among them. The main catwalk shows will be at Belfast’s Europa Hotel.
