Catwalks & Couture at LFW

Catwalks & Couture at LFW

Designers and boutiques from across the country will be taking centre stage at Liverpool Fashion Week in association with Fashione from 10-12 October 2016...

Now in its eight consecutive year the three day high profile catwalk event takes place at The Liner Hotel in Lord Nelson Street and once again sees a diverse range of couture, street wear and lingerie, with the addition of an international shoe designer striding onto the catwalk on opening night. 

This year, Liverpool Fashion Week has partnered with Fashione, the leading suppler of EPoS e-commerce solutions to boutiques and fashion retailers. All boutique owners are invited to attend the event and visit their stand where free demonstrations will be given to show how they can make simple improvements to their business that are cost effective. 

Paul Parker, director of Fashione said, "We are delighted to be sponsoring Liverpool Fashion Week. It gives us a platform to be seen by boutiques and designers and opens up the opportunity for us to work together. LFW is the top regional destination for designers and boutique owners and we are looking forward to showcasing our state of the art EPoS e-solution system to everyone who attends."

Opening Night on Monday 10th October sees couture, plus size fashion and accessories take to the catwalk for the first time including: 

  • Dress 2 Party - exclusive evening gowns, prom wear and pageant gowns;
  • Lavitta - a fashion brand for every occasion in sizes 12-24;
  • Vero Amore Couture - fabulous, quirky, unique women's shoes;

Closing Night on Wednesday 12th October, focuses on the International Designers and  Boutiques. A competition run by Corky's Glitter Schnapps also offers a catwalk slot for a designer who can demonstrate what Liverpool Fashion Week and their sparkling drinks brand is all about:

  • Olivia May - showcasing niche designers and unconventional fashion;
  • Weird Fish - relaxed designs with a nod to coast and country living;
  • Constance H - formal menswear designer showcasing her "Southern Gent" couture collection; 
  • Winner - Corky's Schnapps Design Competition
  • Worn By Us - a charitable fashion community raising funds through re-sale of pre-loved celebrity clothes;
Entertainment will be provided during each show from Kap Official, Solar, Liam Halewood and Myth of Unity.

"Liverpool Fashion Week once again shows off the creative talent of the city and puts us on the fashion map of the UK," added event director Amanda Moss "I can't wait to see the shows which always attracts the right audience of fashion buyers, model scouts and industry professionals so people have the opportunity to further their career. At the same time Liverpool Fashion Week makes fashion shows commercially accessible for everyone. It is a great night out, seeing fashion designs before they hit the high streets and yet everything you see can be bought immediately."

A spokesperson for Corky's Schnapps said, "Corky's is proud to sponsor Liverpool Fashion Week after the brilliant success of Manchester Fashion Week earlier in the year. The brand new Corky's bottle design will be exclusively showcased before they hit stores and customers will get the opportunity to see our amazing glitter range. We look forward to seeing everyone there!"

All shows will have a video link to a screen on the catwalk making ensuring everyone has a front row seat for this annual fashion extravaganza. In addition entertainment from musical talent from around the region offers an interlude to the fashion shows each night.

Also continuing their support for the Liverpool fashion scene is BMD:Law who specialise in looking after small business and start ups.

The creative hair team is headed by the award winning Andrew Joseph Manion and make up is under the supervision of the award winning Emma Lampkin. Music once again is provided by international DJ Sarah Giggle.
