This Saturday (24 August) 250 people will gather in Belfast City Hall to see the latest high street trends modelled at a sell-out fashion show hosted by Belfast One, marking one year from the fire which devastated the iconic Bank Buildings on 28 August 2018 and left City Centre retailers reeling in its wake.
The Belfast One-Way Edit will showcase almost 80 outfits for men and women styled by presented by Rebecca McKinney and which are available to buy now in the City Centre.
Speaking ahead of this weekend’s Belfast One-Way Edit, Clare Maguire, Managing Director of Belfast One, said: “We could not have estimated the impact of a fire such as the magnitude of that experienced in Belfast City Centre last summer. Retailers in Belfast City Centre were faced with an unprecedented drop in footfall. A year on we want to celebrate that Belfast is still the best place to shop in Northern Ireland and showcase what our city centre has to offer with this sell-out fashion show.”
Rebecca will style models in every day wear from Belfast’s best brands, show off stylish outfit inspiration for Belfast nights out and style a capsule look that will take you through autumn with Belfast One.
The event in Belfast City Hall at 2pm on Saturday 24 August will showcase the latest in mens and ladies fashion from across the City Centre. Belfast One-Way Edit retailers include Burtons, Debenhams, Dunnes, Evans, Evolution de Cuba, Fat Face, Gap, Jack & Jones, Jigsaw, Joules, Marks & Spencer, Newbridge Silverware, New Look, Next, Par Ici, Dorothy Perkins, Primark, Replay, Rio Brazil, Sea Salt, Sketchers, Specsavers, Ann Summers, Vila, Warehouse, Andrew Watson Menswear, White Stuff and Jack Wills, as well as make up and beauty from MAC, The Body Shop, Lush, and many more.
