YOUR ESSENTIAL GUIDE TO NOTTINGHAM IN FASHION
With Nottingham In Fashion kicking off on Friday, we bring you the essential guide to this years fashion event.
What is it?

Where is it?
The free catwalk shows will be taking place in the Art Deco Ballroom, in the Council House overlooking the Old Market Square. There will also be pop-up activities on the city centre square, including a parked-up Fashion Bus and branded beauty area.

All of the items shown on the catwalk can be bought straight away from Nottingham shops – people can simply visit the dedicated Fashion Bus in the Old Market Square or head to our website for our online outfit gallery. There will also be free mini beauty treatments from Nottingham salon Beauty Temple, Urban Decay, Kiko and Aveda, as well as a selection of make-up brands at Debenhams, John Lewis and House of Fraser. These will be taking place upstairs on the bus.
