Get your all glamorous outfits ready – Newcastle Fashion Week is coming and it will bring young talents and professionals from the fashion world together!
This year ‘s fashion festival organizers invite us to see many impressive collections, including Newcastle students’. NFW is supplemented with fresh public events such as Street Style Hunt (the most stylish people will be announced and get the prizes), photography exhibitions, workshops, where a wide and attentive audience will be welcomed to various Newcastle locations.
This year NFW will bring famous British brand Barbour, Donna Air (who modelled for Burberry) and Elizabeth Walker, Executive Fashion and Beauty Editor of Mary Claire.
NE1’s Newcastle Fashion Week coordinator Sandra Tang says that there are a couple of reasons why she thinks Newcastle needs a Fashion Week.
Firstly, it helps business in the city centre (not only fashion retailers).
Secondly, it rises sales.
Moreover, Sandra wants to prove that Newcastle is the fashion capital of the North. ”You just don’t have one type of look. It (Newcastle) just has a good mixture of people. It shows what Newcastle has to offer the best”.
And the last one, it helps and promotes education courses. This year we will have an opportunity to see Newcastle College’s and Northumbria fashion students’ shows.
Asked how she makes her decisions, what should be included in the Fashion Week, Sandra Tang says: ”I think what would Grazia do? Would Grazia readers be interested in that?”
The answer is simple – yes, they definitely would.
