Hands up who else is struggling to sleep with the excitement now that Europe’s biggest fashion, beauty and style festival is just days away from taking over our city?
Line those rollers up girls, start planning your outfits guys because in just a few short days, British Style Collective will throw open the doors at four iconic city venues and it’s going to knock your socks off.

We have put together the ultimate BSC ‘Must Do’ guide and you need to have ticked ALL of the below off before the weekend is out!
Just one ticket gains you entry into all four venues to watch beauty demo’s, industry expert talks, mind-blowing catwalk shows at the Alcatel Fashion arena and browse the vintage fashion, vinyl and artefacts at Fine Tuned at our world famous, Albert Dock. Don’t forget to rest and refuel at the St John’s Gin Garden before shopping til you drop at more than 150 online, high street and independent brands in the shopping halls of the Exhibition Centre Liverpool.
