More than 100 aspiring models are to be given expert tips to ensure they are a catwalk sensation in Lincoln this Spring.

On Monday (January 23), the lucky men, women and children who have been selected to take part in Lincoln Fashion Week 2017’s exciting catwalk finale will be attending a special workshop to prepare for this unmissable extravaganza.

Lincoln BIG – which is masterminding the event with the help of industry professionals – is running the workshop at Alive Church in Newland, where the actual show will take place on Friday, May 5.

The workshop is just one of many things happening behind the scenes to make Lincoln Fashion Week, which runs from April 28 to May 5 (including the Bank Holiday) one of the major highlights in the city’s 2017 calendar.

Retailers keen to have their latest fashions featured have already thrown their support behind the week and the Waterside Shopping Centre is our headine sponsor, but Lincoln BIG is keen to hear from more businesses. Shops need to register their interest by January 27.

In addition to the thrill of modelling Lincoln’s hottest new season styles, the stars of the catwalk show will ooze extra sparkle after being pampered by the city’s top hairdressers and make-up artists.

Lincoln BIG Events & Marketing Assistant Jess Wickham said: “Last year’s our first Lincoln Fashion Week proved a real winner, but we’re out to make an even bigger impression this time around.

“For many of our models we know that taking part is a dream come true and some are taking to the catwalk for a second time because they couldn’t resist the opportunity to strut their stuff again, after having had such a great time in last year’s inaugural show.

“We have many more exciting events planned for our special week, so we are encouraging everyone to watch this space!”

The curtain goes up on Lincoln Fashion Week when it is officially launched at the New Theatre Royal in Lincoln on April 28.

Any other retailers and businesses which are keen to get involved, should contact Jess Wickham by email or telephone her on 01522 842702 by January 27.
