It’s been a crazy busy week for me here, and it’s only about to get busier. This Saturday, I am set to attend the Sheffield Style Show event ran in aid of The Sheffield Children’s Hospital.
The event is taking place over Saturday and Sunday this weekend, and returning for its second year after organiser Charlotte Calvert noticed a gap in the market for a high-profile fashion event in Sheffield- and she’s not wrong there.
Long has fashion been perceived as an elitist industry centred down south, but this needn’t be the case. The north boasts hundreds of incredible designers and clothing brands, and it’s about time we did something to do them justice. With The Clothes Show Live in Birmingham, as well as Manchester Fashion Week and the North West Fashion Show held annually in Liverpool I’m absolutely thrilled that Sheffield is following suit thanks to the hard work of Charlotte and fellow organiser Cheryl Cunningham.
I’m going to be coming down at around 12pm tomorrow to watch some of the runway shows, and have a look at what the event has to offer, which is held at High Storrs School in Ecclesall. There’s set to be pop-up food stalls, as well as a range of clothing and accessories on sale from some of Sheffield’s finest local boutiques. Tickets are priced at £10 each with all proceeds going to the Sheffield Children’s Hospital after Charlotte received life-saving surgery there for a burst appendix in 2000- an extremely worthwhile cause indeed. You can buy tickets online here.
So, if you haven’t made plans and fancy a more glamorous Saturday/Sunday than trudging round Fargate & watching The X-Factor, it’d be great to meet some of you readers there.
Until next time,
