SOLIHULL will host its first ever fashion week this month with the launch of a catwalk show hosted by Strictly Come Dancing star Anton Du Beke.

The four-day fashion event, which takes place from Thursday (April 21) to Sunday (April 24) will be followed by a weekend spectacular at Touchwood shopping centre.

Stunning clothing, beauty treatments and hair styling will be taking place throughout the event with expert talks from celebrity stylists and must-see demonstrations taking place across the town centre.

Furthermore, Touchwood shopping centre will host a vibrant, fashion-focussed, event where there will be a dedicated men’s catwalk show from 11am on Saturday (April 23) in the Atrium.

A live fashion show featuring the latest looks from Gap, Next and Zara will then take place the following day.

Lucy Burnett, marketing manager for Touchwood said: “We’re thrilled to be playing our part in the town’s first ever Fashion Week.
