Get inspiration for your spring/summer wardrobe at the Mall’s fashion shows




Well it’s that time again, the new collections are making an appearance in the shops and with the sale items finally disappearing we can start to think about how to work the spring/summer trends and what to buy to update our wardrobes from last summer.

If you need some inspiration then head to the Mall at Cribbs Causeway for one of their fantastic fashion shows.

I used worked at John Lewis as one of their fashion advisors before setting up my own Personal Styling business, (www.nikiwhittle.com) and had the opportunity to experience the shows from behind the scenes. The work that goes into getting the shows and outfits just right is incredible!

Mark Heyes has become a regular host and is returning again, with celebrity hair dresser, Andrew Barton. Mark says: “Thousands of fashion-savvy ladies return year after year, so if you’ve not been before, then come and join us. As well as the fashion shows, you can enjoy free cosmetic make-overs, mini-manicures, massages, hair advice and styling by SAKS”

The fashion magazines are full of fab images from the catwalk shows at the moment, how many of you look at the models and think to yourself “there’s no way I can wear that!” Well you can, with a little inspiration from the Mall fashion show; you’ll discover how to interpret the catwalk looks and adapt them into something much more wearable.

Showcasing outfits for all ages and styles, and fabulous make-overs by Mark Heyes, the shows are a must for anyone who’s not sure about how to work this season’s trend’s, or is looking for a fab trip out.

Tickets cost from just £8.50 and are available from www.mallcribbs.com or The Mall’s Information Desk.

Makeover model Sally:


Sally Whitworth was picked to be one of the makeover models at The Mall's fashion show last October.

Sally said: “It was so exciting to receive personal style advice from Mark Heyes and the other experts. Going out on the catwalk was scary, but everyone was very supportive and knowing I looked good gave me the confidence to do it. The buzz stayed with me for some time afterwards. I’d really recommend the experience to anyone!”
