Touchwood is inviting all local fashionistas to come along to the centre and celebrate its first ever Fashion Weekend from Friday 25 to Sunday 27 March. Featuring a whole host of fashion-inspired events, from catwalk shows to competitions and exclusive promotions, the weekend has something for all fashion fans to enjoy.

The weekend will kick-off with the finale of Touchwood’s search for the Top Ten Designers to watch, as ten student designers from Birmingham City College go head-to-head on the catwalk in a bid to win a £250 gift card. The students will showcase their collections during three exclusive shows on Friday 25 March which will offer guests a taste of the ‘Fashions of the Future’.

Then, on Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 March, Touchwood will play host to its annual spring/summer fashion shows, where some of its top retailers such as John Lewis, Superdry, Hobbs and Karen Millen, will take to the catwalk to reveal this season’s hottest trends.

Lucy Burnett, marketing manager at Touchwood, comments: “Our fabulous Fashion Weekend offers the perfect excuse to start planning your spring/summer wardrobe. Those who join us will be amongst the first to get a glimpse of what’s hot and what’s not this season for women, men and children, so if you’re looking for some style inspiration then make sure you pop by.

“What’s more, to celebrate our 10th birthday, we’re also offering guests the chance to receive an extra 10% on us when they purchase a gift card to the value of £100 or more over the course of fashion weekend. So if you’re looking to treat yourself to the latest trends or get a head start on your summer shopping, then make sure you take advantage of this fantastic offer. ”
