Our stunning St George’s Hall gets set for star studded British Style Collective
It is certainly one (if not the) most beautiful and iconic venue in the city, so of course St George’s Hall will host the creme de la creme of the fashion industry during next weekend’s British Style Collective.
In just under two weeks’ time, famous faces from the world of fashion and entertainment will descend upon the Great Hall and its stunning Concert Room for a glistening showcase of talent. The architecturally stunning venue will play home to high-end catwalk shows, exclusive Q&As and insider interviews across the three days (7-9 July) as part of this summer’s most anticipated fashion event: British Style Collective presented by The Clothes Show in association with Alcatel.

Ready to storm the runway, renowned British designers including Philip Armstrong, Sorapol and Edeline Lee, and Lisbon based designer David Ferreira, will showcase their much-admired collections, giving visitors, a taste of glamorous catwalk shows from the ‘frow’ of St George’s Hall. The models will be perfectly styled by Andrea Daley at Barbara Daley and the L’Oréal Professional hair team. Hilary Alexander OBE will then host a series of live interviews with the designers, allowing the audience to delve a little deeper into the world of couture, hearing first-hand the inspiration, craftsmanship and hard work behind each collection.
