Watch as we take you on a tour of the British Style Collective venues
It’s now less than four weeks until the very first British Style Collective comes to Liverpool. We caught up with Fashion Journalist and BSC Presenter, Antonia O’Brien to tour the iconic venues.
Taking place from 7-9 July, British Style Collective will embrace some of Liverpool’s most iconic landmarks as part of a citywide event, boasting trend-led catwalks, unrivalled shopping and exclusive stage content featuring some of the most sought-after names in fashion, beauty and entertainment. Our Jay showed BSC Presenter, Antonia O’Brien around Liverpool (her first time visiting our amazing city) and found out more about each venue.
St George’s Hall
Enjoy this historic venue as it hosts a number of high end catwalk shows and the biggest VIP guests of the weekend. Join Antonia as she hosts sofa sessions and industry talks with guests such as Hilary Alexander OBE, Designer Henry Holland and Glamour Editor, Jo Elvin. Take in a catwalk show in the great hall, enjoy a refreshing cocktail in the dedicated Gin garden and listen to insider tips and gossip, all in one stunning venue.
Liverpool One is the epicentre of British Style Collective and boasts more than 170 stores, restaurants and a brand new addition, the Selfie Mirrors! Get yourself down to Peter’s Lane, strike a pose and reapply your lippy before taking in the very best of the high street shops. Stop in for a coffee, a cocktail or a bite to eat, all in one, very stylish location. Liverpool One is also offering a number of discounts and workshops throughout the British Style Collective weekend.
Love your vintage? Then head to Albert Dock and check out Fine Tuned. This free festival will pay homage to iconic styles of bygone eras whilst showcasing future trends, curated by none other than Wayne Hemingway. A place to play, see, eat, drink and stay; this vibrant, historic waterfront location is a natural home for Fine Tuned, as it blends new with old and classic with contemporary. Visitors can expect a unique blend of shopping experiences, classic cars, supercool DJs playing the finest vinyl, pop up ‘Best in Show’ catwalks, beauty make-overs and brilliantly unique street theatre.
The iconic Alcatel Fashion Arena, brought to you by the producers of the Clothes Show, will take you on an explosive journey through the worlds of fashion, dance, latest trends and catwalk, all combined with live music acts from the next big names in one 60 minute show-stopping spectacle. Having clapped and cheered the gorgeous models and celeb hosts we guarantee you’ll be heading straight to The Shopping Halls to pick up the hottest trends from the catwalk.
Exhibition Centre Liverpool
