Due to take place on the 4th to 8th December 2015, Nanshy is super excited to announce that we’ll be right in the middle of the action, on our stand at HA12 next to Rimmel and NYX. We can’t wait to get to The Clothes Show and meet our fabulous fans, so do come along and say ‘hello’, whichever day you’re planning to come.
What is The Clothes Show?
If you love fashion, you’ll almost certainly have heard of The Clothes Show. Held annually at the NEC in Birmingham, this is the UK’s leading event for everything about clothes, fashion and style. Presented by celebrities and featuring live performances form some of the UK’s most exciting musical talent, it’s one event that has a firm spot in the diary of every fashionista in the country.
Launched in 1989 on the back of the popular TV show of the same name, the event attracts over 150,000 visitors every single year. Established model agencies often use the show as a hunting ground for new talent, and famous faces such as Cat Deeley and Holly Willoughby have been plucked from the crowd in the past.
This year, The Clothes Show has secured sponsorship from tech giant Alcatel OneTouch, and is promising to be bigger and better than ever. Leading the line-up for 2015 are four gorgeous British models, Erika Pattison, Sarah-Ann Macklin, Hannah Dodd and Rhiannon Laslett, collectively known as the ‘Brit Pack’, and who were all scouted at the show over the last decade by Select Model Management.
What happened to the ‘live’?
In line with the significant improvements, investments and changes to the old ‘Clothes Show Live’ format, the event has rebranded itself as ‘The Clothes Show’ for the event in December 2015. The overhaul is not just in the name either, and avid fashion fans can expect an altogether better event this year.
The layout has been improved to give a better flow throughout the event, and there are new and innovative features built in which will enhance your catwalk, shopping and seminar experience. In light of the strong links between fashion and beauty, you can now find more of your favourite brands here at the event for 2015.
Over 500 high street, boutique and designer brands will be housed in newly curated sections, helping you find your favourites and discover new products more easily.
