Exciting News for MCR Fashion Week

(image taken at Sophia D Couture show in Manchester)

As some of you may already know I am an official blogger for Manchester Fashion Week which will be taking place on the 22nd April and run for five days. I'm so excited and today we all heard the amazing news that Kirtsy Attwood of Net-a-Porter fame has been appointed as Head of Fashion for the event.

Whats more I have now been informed of the location - MCRFW will take place at the iconic Urbis building recently named 'National Football Museum' right next to Victoria Train Station. This excites me for two reasons, Victoria is my station, meaning no lengthy walks or bus journeys to fashion shows and also I have a lot of history with this building in particular being the place we'd hang out every Summer when I was in my early teens. (The emo and mosher crowd would literally take over the entire lawn outside, so Urbis quickly became known as the place for the alternative crowd.) It will be fantastic to go back there as an adult and experience an entirely different kind of crowd. It's a perfect spot.

Over the five days Urbis will host 30 fashion shows and 15 exhibition spaces and I'll be bringing you all the fashion news from as many shows as possible! If you'd like to come along (and I really think you should) ticket information has not yet been released but you can keep up to date by signing up to the Manchester Fashion Week newsletter or keeping your eye on their website.

There is also the official Intern Opening Day where you can pop along and apply to work behind the scenes at Manchester Fashion Week. This is a great opportunity for anyone wanting to work in fashion and it will make a stunning example on your CV. Interviews are taking place on Saturday 2nd Feb and you can see more info here.
