SHOPPERS at The Avenue are in for a rare fashion treat when the centre holds it first fashion festival extravaganza.

The event takes part on Saturday, April 28 and will be hosted by radio DJ Gina McKie.

It will highlight the best in fashion that The Avenue has to offer and will host three shows throughout the day at 11am, 1pm and 3pm.

Fashion stylist and model scout Victoria Allison will be on hand to give a range of fashion and style advice while the festival will really be brought to life by The Living Dolls.

The Avenue’s centre manager, Michelle McCabe, told The Extra: “Although we’ve hosted static fashion shows at The Avenue, we’ve never had a fashion festival on this scale before.

“In addition to two red carpets at either end of the shopping centre, we have some surprises in store.

“For example, the festival will feature The Living Dolls — mannequins dotted throughout the mall standing on podiums and in shop windows modelling the latest fashions available at The Avenue who will suddenly break into choreographed dance routines, lending the event an entertaining, surprise element that has to be seen to be believed”.

Shoppers will also have the opportunity to win a VIP day at The Spa at Parklands, consisting of full use of all spa facilities including back, neck and shoulder massage; Elmis facial; hair cut and blow dry; manicure and pedicure, make-up and lunch at Michael’s Bistro.
