Manchester Fashion Week (#MCRFW14) is back, with a mission to create a platform for everything that is great about the City’s fashion scene. The main event will be a series of fashion shows spanning four days over the Bank Holiday Easter weekend, 18th-21st April.
Comprising of independent fashion designers, graduates and leading names in the fashion world, #MCRFW14 will take place at Hallé St Peters, Ancoats. During the weekend, the best of what Manchester has to offer in fashion will be on show, putting the city firmly on the fashion map, following on from the success of Vogue Fashion’s Night Out last October.
Some of the confirmed fashion shows include Boda Skins, famous for its luxury leather jackets, online based retailer OMGFashion, as well as independent retailers, Fabric and Laundry Boutique.
The Radisson Blu Edwardian Hotel Manchester has been confirmed as a headline partner, while The Milton Club are lined up to host the after-show parties during the four days.
Anna Gledson, Event Director at #MCRFW14 said: “We’re really thrilled to be back and we’re already receiving a great response from others in the city who are equally excited. We’ll be showcasing some of Manchester’s hidden fashion gems, revealing some incredible undiscovered talent and giving these young designers a platform to elevate their designs within the fashion world. #MCRFW14 is all about providing opportunity, and going forward we hope to give others the chance to get into the fashion industry, starting right here in Manchester.” She heads up the team consisting of ten employees, both full time and on an intern basis, based in central Manchester.
Martin Glyn, Project and Events Manager at Hallé St Peters, commented: “We are looking forward to hosting #MCRFW14 at Hallé St Peter’s this Easter. Ancoats has always been central to the cotton industry in Manchester, and indeed the UK, so it feels entirely fitting that this year’s event should be staged here. It will be the first event of its type in the space and we look forward to welcoming the designers, models and all of the guests.”
