CastleCourt celebrate 25 years with a fashion event

By Maureen Coleman

Twenty-five years ago, the opening of CastleCourt in Belfast city centre revolutionised local shopping, bringing together dozens of well-known brands and stores under one roof.

Not only did the shopping complex introduce Debenhams to Belfast as its anchor tenant but it also houses high street fashion names such as Miss Selfridge, New Look and Dorothy Perkins.

To mark this milestone of 25 years, CastleCourt is pulling out all the stops this Saturday with a family-friendly event for all its shoppers. The centre will come alive with a host of activities for children, including face painters, balloon artists and circus acts. For the trend-setters, there will be fashion shows to showcase CastleCourt's spring/summer campaign and the many exciting fashion options available across the centre's 80 stores.

Citybeat will be getting the party started from 11am while catwalk shows will get underway at 1pm, 2pm, and 3pm featuring the model finalists of this year's Fashionweek CoverGirl competition.

The fashion shows will pay homage to the eclectic looks from 1990 to 2015, with nods to everything from boho chic to the current Bardot-inspired styles.

Whether you're channelling your inner '90s pop star like Lisa Stansfield or embracing the grungy festival style of Kate Moss, the catwalk shows will feature some of the funkiest fashions from across the centre's stores. From party wear to work outfits, CastleCourt has something for every shape, size and budget.
