Vintage glamour is tipped to be a big trend at the Norwich Lanes Fashion Show during Norwich Fashion Week. Emma Harrowing gets a sneak peak of some of the outfits that will be on show.
Fashion boutiques and hair stylists in Norwich Lanes are buzzing with creativity as they complete their looks for the Norwich Fashion Week catwalk on September 23.
Word from the historical streets is that the show aims to impress the fashion world with a dizzying cocktail of high fashion from vintage, vintage-inspired, catwalk and mainstream looks from the kooky and cutting edge fashion boutiques and hair salons in Norwich Lanes.
Each boutique is being partnered with a hair salon to create on-trend looks that will shock, inspire and make you want to copy.
Lauren Gregory, owner of the Birdcage pub on Pottergate and part of the Norwich Lanes Association, says: “Norwich Lanes has such a diverse selection of independent boutiques. This kind of shopping experience is essential for fashion in order for it to continue to generate new, individual styles and exciting trends. Having an initiative like Norwich Fashion Week gives us the opportunity to bring both shoppers and shopkeepers together to publicise just how special our area of Norwich is.”
The Birdcage will also host a special after-show party for those lucky enough to get a ticket to the show. Plus you will get a free drink, goody bag and a special keepsake of the event.
The Norwich Lanes Fashion Show takes place on Friday, September 23 from 8pm at St Gregory’s Church.
Tickets are on sale now and cost £10. Call the Birdcage on 01603 633534.
