Harvey Nichols Manchester hosted the Spring/Summer 2013 Fashion Show on Wednesday 6 March in the prestigious store amongst the crème de la crème of what’s hot in fashion, beauty and food.
Abbey Clancy, Natasha Hamilton, Rachel Shenton, Lisa Carrick, Jessica Lawlor, Dani Lawrence and Leanne Brown were among many who attended the show, along with a selection of Harvey Nichols Manchester’s top customers who enjoyed the 15% fashion show discount and pre-show drinks reception whilst browsing the designer collections on accessories and beauty.
The Fashion Show took place on the first floor, where guests were greeted with an extravagant entrance and a chic set up. Guests entered the show through 2 sets of large doors draped with white fabric, where they were met by an all white, U shape catwalk, over 400 seats and pops of colour. To start the show, the lights were switched off to create excitement, before the music queued the models to appear. Stood in the doorways on the catwalk, the models posed before walking out to a light display following their moves. The show was scented by Jo Malone’s latest fragrance, Earl Grey & Cucumber.
Top models from London and the North West donned the catwalk at the event. Britain’s Next Top Model winner Jade Thompson walked along with fellow models from Manchester’s Boss Model Management and top London agencies. As they strutted their stuff down the catwalk, upbeat and themed music was played, carefully selected to accompany the trends and garments on show.
Guests saw an exciting array of trends for Spring/Summer 2013 for both men and women. Showcasing a vivid selection of colours, patterns and fabrics, trends varied from the opening ‘Time to Reflect’ – with metallics, sequins and sparkle, to the men’s ‘Bloc Party’ and women’s ‘Neon News’ which screamed colour, colour and more colour. The final looks to go down the catwalk were the movie inspired ‘Gangster Squad’ and the fabulous ‘Precision Whites’, which caused ‘oohs’ and ‘aahs’ from the eager-toshop customers.
