Fashion-conscious families with a secret ambition to hit the catwalk have the chance to make their dreams come true at Lincoln Fashion Week 2017!!

Lincoln BIG is forging ahead with its plans for Lincoln Fashion Week 2017 and are looking for models of all ages, who are keen to be pampered, have fun and inject extra sparkle into this unmissable extravaganza.

The 2017 event will run from April 28 to May 5 (which includes the Bank Holiday period) and it will finish with a flourish with the Friday Night Finale on May 5, 2017.

Lincoln BIG Events Assistant Jess Wickham said: “Last year’s week featured pop-up catwalk shows.  Sixty amateur models took part and it was supported by retailers, make-up artists and other fashion professionals.

“It was really successful, but we want the  2017 event to be even bigger, better and brighter and we are calling on members of the community, in Lincoln and beyond, to get involved and help-us to kick off a really stylish Summer of Fashion.

“This is a fantastic opportunity for aspiring models to gain first-hand experience of modelling on stage (in our finale show) and we will be working with top name brands and independent fashion houses to curate all the elements in this spectacle.

“We’re determined that Lincoln Fashion Week will be as inclusive as possible and we want to feature models across all age groups, from the under-10s to the over-60s and more!,” said Jess.

“You can imagine the buzz that’s created when we bring fashion houses, retailers, health and beauty, hairdressing, photography and design businesses together and everyone has a chance to showcase their talents. It really is unmissable,” added Jess.

Would-be models who would like to get involved should complete the online application form by Monday 28th November, and send in a recent photograph of yourself. Lincoln BIG will be inviting all applicants to a model meeting to give details about this fantastic experience later in the year.

Lincoln BIG are currently busy planning the weeks celebration and working behind the scenes making a few alterations to the format of the week for 2017 to give it that little bit extra style! Lincoln Fashion Week will be launched on April 28 at the New Theatre Royal Lincoln and the Grand Finale of the event is scheduled to take place at Alive Church in Newland on May 5.
