BBC RADIO 1 PRESENTER, ALICE LEVINE TO HOST FIRST EVER NOTTINGHAM FASHION WEEK
Over the last few years It’s in Nottingham’s 48 Hours of Fashion, delivered by the Nottingham Business Improvement District (BID), has grown to become one of the largest and most successful events the city hosts. This year, it is set to be even bigger and better than ever before as It’s in Nottingham has teamed up with the Creative Quarter to create Nottingham Fashion Week.
This will be the first ever week-long fashion event the city has had and it will see Nottingham’s very own Alice Levine, who is probably best known as a BBC Radio 1 DJ and TV presenter on BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and Sky, presenting various shows during the week.
The event, which will take place from Friday 22 April to Saturday 30 April 2016, will be dedicated to showcasing the very best of Nottingham fashion from local designers and independent and national retailers in the city, with various events and activities taking place.
On Friday 29 and Saturday 30 April, Nottingham Conference Centre’s Old Museum building will be transformed into the ‘Fashion Theatre’ for It’s in Nottingham’s spectacular Style Show Live, presented by Alice Levine. The 48 hour long event will showcase the latest Spring/Summer 16 trends and collections from a host of Nottingham’s independents and high street retailers.
“I am really looking forward to being a part of the first ever Nottingham Fashion Week. It is a real honour to be involved in an event in my hometown,” said Alice. “Fashion is a huge part of Nottingham’s heritage and the city is renowned for its great mix of independents, vintage stores and high end boutiques. There is also a great range of the top national high street shops.”
“I am thrilled to be hosting the Style Shows on the 29th and 30th April and excited to see the latest looks from the city’s amazing line-up of shops.”
On the other side of the city, there will be style presentations taking place throughout the day on Saturday 30 April at The Contemporary on Weekday Cross. Fashion advice from style experts on such topics as how to buy and wear vintage, the best fashion for different body shapes and advice on wedding wear will be given during the shows.
Standard tickets for the Style Shows on Friday 29 and Saturday 30 April at Nottingham Conference Centre cost £5, which includes a goody bag that can be collected from intu Victoria Centre and access to special retailer offers and activities.
VIP tickets are available at £12 and include a reserved front row seat and a £5 voucher to spend in the city’s intu shopping centres.
