One week to go before the show

Suffolk Fashion Show 2017

It’s only one week to go before the Suffolk Fashion Show 2018 takes place at Trinity Park!

The rehearsals have stepped up a gear and the backstage team are ready for an evening of adrenaline filled, fashion fun.

The annual catwalk show, now in its sixth year, will showcase the very best of autumn trends from local boutiques and designers.

Guests will begin the evening with a spot of shopping in the Fifth Avenue Fashion Arcade. Local retailer Five Six Blue will be having a pop-up shop, as will Tilley & Grace.

The audience will be treated to a tapas style menu, and then the show will begin!

There is a stellar line-up of local boutiques and designers taking to the runway this year. Ipswich based boutiques Cake & Catwalk, Zeebra Chic, Truffle and Maud’s Attic will all be showcasing their autumn looks. Local knitwear designer (and all round lovely person!) Francesca.R.Palumbo will reveal her brand new collection and the male models will be sassy in suits from Moss Bros.

Expect some sparkles from the gowns at Simply Splendid and Blue Poppy Boutique who will be inspiring our Christmas party wear. Kiss FM DJ, Charlie Hedges, will also be unveiling a range from her e-commerce site, Charlie’s Pop Up Boutique.

I’m also really looking forward to seeing the styling from Ipswich charity shop, Zest. If you haven’t heard about the modern charity shop concept based on Queen’s street then you can read all about them in my previous blog post here. The looks for both men and women will prove that pre-loved clothes can be incredibly fashionable.
