Clothes Show Live

Park has been attending this event for a few years now. The Clothes Show Live is the world’s biggest and most exciting fashion and beauty event, showcasing the UK’s hottest trends and most talented designers. It is open to all schools and the general public from around the country and attracts 125,000 visitors a year. The event is based around the main Fashion Show, a huge production including models, dancers, visual and light effects. This is a great opportunity to view a cutting-edge fashion show first hand, making pupils aware of the very latest in fashion trends and the work which goes into such a production.

As well as the show, the event held in the NEC each December has over 400 exhibitors displaying and selling all the latest fashions and beauty accessories. There is also the College Forum, where top British fashion colleges are available to provide information on the courses available once pupils have left school, and there are opportunities to discuss careers in Fashion and Textiles, Performance and Dance, Set Design, Lighting, Music, Make-up and Hair Design. Pupils can also see displays of students’ work from other various colleges from all over the country, modelled on mini catwalks dotted around the centre. A very educational and inspiring trip for all!
