Get FREE mini-makeovers and watch live fashion shows at Manchester Arndale to celebrate launch of AW19 collections


Fashion Factory is on its way to Manchester Arndale to celebrate the launch of the AW19 collections.

An industrial-style hub will pop up in Exchange Court this weekend, where shoppers will be treated to live fashion shows, free mini-makeovers and a series of ‘silent’ style sessions from local influencers.

20 of the centre’s biggest fashion brands will be featuring their AW19 collections during the live fashion shows, including All Saints, House of CB, Lipsy, New Look, Next, River Island, Topshop, Topman and Timberland.

Shoppers will also have the chance to speak directly with style experts from Dorothy Perkins, Burton, All Saints, Gap, Topshop and Topman.

Manchester Arndale will also welcome fashion influencers and stylists Ruth Preston, Lisa Ross and Victoria Thewlis who will be dishing out headphones for a series of ‘silent’ style sessions on the busy mall over the weekend.

Sessions include:

· Body confidence and dressing for a fuller figure
· Create your A/W capsule wardrobe
· The busy woman’s guide to style
· Catwalk style at high street prices
· What’s hot for Autumn/Winter 2019

Style sessions are free to join but spaces are limited, so pre-book now here.

Complimentary hair & beauty makeovers will be on offer from Doll Beauty at Topshop, Inglot, KIKO Milano, Supercuts and The Body Shop. And there’ll be a barber area offering styling from Sergeant Caesar on Saturday.

And keep your eyes and ears peeled for surprise one hour flash sales during the weekend, offering up to 50% off your favourite retailers. Plus, there’s the chance to win a £250 shopping spree by sharing a picture from the event selfie wall on social media (T&Cs apply).

Fashion Factory will be live in Exchange Court (outside Next) on Saturday 14th September (10am-6.30pm) and Sunday 15th September (11am-5.30pm).
