Professional models will showcase fashion and accessories from both national and independent retailers in Winchester city centre such as Anthroplogie, Aspiga, Crew Clothing, Ellie and Bea, Hobbs, Mint Velvet, Mountain Warehouse, Oliver Bonas, Phase Eight, Primark Rawlings Opticians, Re:dress, Suave Owl, The Well Worn and White Stuff. 

Sarah Davis, Manager of Winchester BID, said: “We are delighted that the University of Winchester has chosen once again to support this annual event.  The support of the university helps us to grow the event each year. 

"We get the opportunity to work with students studying Fashion Marketing and Event Management and give them a real live event to work on. They can also create their own events during the week and gain valuable experience not just in the world of fashion, but in pulling together a show-stopping city-wide event.

"Our ongoing relationship with the university students and course leaders means that we are confident to develop new ideas and new ways of working to make the Grand Finale Catwalk Show, as well as the entire week, a great success.”
