BRISTOL Fashion Week will raise funds for a £500,000 appeal for the new Bristol Breast Care Centre, it has been announced.

Eighteen catwalk shows will take place during the spring and summer show, from Wednesday, March 26 to Sunday, March 30, at The Mall at Cribbs Causeway.

Hosted by TV fashion stylist Mark Heyes and celebrity hairdresser Andrew Barton, audiences can expect to be entertained with style advice, celebrity gossip and fashion tips.

Each catwalk show will feature an array of models of all sizes, ages and genders, displaying a wide selection of fashions to suit all.

The event will be held in support of the centre, which is due to open this summer and will provide all breast services for the greater Bristol area in a sensitive environment tailored to the needs of the thousands of women living with or at risk of breast cancer.

Ahead of fashion week, The Mall is inviting entries in its makeover competition where five people will win the opportunity to receive a personal styling session with Mark Heyes, hair re-style and cosmetic consultation. The models will then get the chance to strut their stuff on the Bristol Fashion Week catwalk, revealing their new look.

Mark Heyes said “One of my favourite parts of Bristol Fashion Week is the makeover models.

“The styling day is all about finding an on-trend outfit that makes the model feel and look fabulous as well as encouraging them to try something new.

“It’s always great to see the models take to the catwalk and the best part about the makeover is that they can keep the clothes after the show.”
