WINCHESTER residents got a sneak peak at some of this summer’s hottest clothing this week.
Even legendary television presenter Dickie Davies was in Winchester to check out new fashions on Tuesday night (April 16).
The ‘Girls Night In’ event at High Street chain LK Bennett, part of Winchester Fashion Week, saw guests get a sneak peak at the shop’s spring and summer collection, modelled on a catwalk.
Store manager Helen Waluga said: “We do lots of events like this. It’s a great opportunity to showcase our new collections and get new clients and we wanted to support Winchester Fashion Week.”
Mr Davies, who presented several sport shows for ITV, was there to support a friend who was modelling, but said the event brought back memories for him.
He said: “Around 30 odd years ago my wife had dress shops in Andover and we used to do fashion shows which I would ‘MC’. It’s a great event and my wife is a customer here and we’ve really enjoyed it.”
The night also featured a presentation on fashion trends and colours by image consultancy House of Colour.
Consultant Katie Russell said: “Everybody has their own personality and it’s important to dress to that personality and style. We are advising our clients what to wear and LK Bennett is a one stop shop for that because they are up with the latest trends.”
Winchester Fashion Week is organised by Winchester Business Improvement District and culminates with catwalk shows at the Guildhall this weekend.
