Press Release: 16/06/2011

Winchester Fashion Week Team is delighted to announce that their timetable is complete and all tickets are now on sale.

This week the organisers of Winchester’s very first fashion week, headed by Poppy Koumis and Vikki Weston, celebrated as the tickets officially went on sale. The week of the 25 to 31 July will be presenting the very best, the most inspired and the incredible cream of the Winchester Fashion Art crop. Ranging from student to professional work, all organically sourced from local artistic talent and handpicked by the Winchester Fashion Week team.

Winchester Fashion Week will consist of six spectacular catwalk shows with the main focus on the ‘Cirque Du Fashion’ shows at Guildhall Winchester. These circus themed shows are the main event for Winchester Fashion Week, running a total of three nights from Thursday to Saturday, and expected to be a sell out, so buy your tickets now before they are gone!

As well as catwalk shows, Winchester Fashion Week is offering talks and workshops, a fashion photography, film and illustration exhibition, a frock swap, a vintage dance night as well as plans to take over the whole of the Brooks Shopping Centre with pop-up shops, gallery spaces and the official Winchester Fashion Week HQ.
