Top fashion expert transforms Loughborough shopping centre into giant catwalk

A TOP fashion expert whose own modelling career included hosting at a party for George Clooney will transform a Loughborough shopping centre into a giant catwalk.

Top models will be showcasing the very latest trends and styles at Fashion on the Move, a series of free fashion and dance shows at Carillon Court Shopping Centre in Loughborough on Saturday, May 4.

The event is being hosted by Sally Mansell, owner of The Fashion Show Company, whose international career has seen her rub shoulders with Hollywood A-listers such as George Clooney and Mark Wahlberg and work for prestigious clients such as Mercedes and Aston Martin.

The mum-of-two, 48, who has more than 30 years experience in the fashion industry as a model, stylist and presenter, said: “We will transform Carillon Court into a giant catwalk.

“It is going to be a high energy, entertaining, family friendly show and there will be fashion on offer for all ages and sizes.

“It is a really good chance for shoppers to also gain fashion advice and they are more than welcome to approach me and ask about styles and shapes which suit them.

“The great thing is that everything which the shoppers see on the day will be available in the shopping centre so they can literally go off and recreate the on-trend outfits which I will have hand-selected from the stores at Carillon Court before the event.”

There will be five high impact dance and fashion shows on the hour from 11 am at the event on Saturday May 4 and there will be offers and discounts for shoppers to take advantage of on the day.

Among the stores taking part will be New Look, Topshop, Topman, Claire’s Accessories, Vision Express, VR Clothing and H Samuel and The Body Shop.

Carillon Court Manager Baljit Kooner said: “We are really looking forward to having a top fashion expert like Sally at the centre who has so much experience in the industry.

“Fashion on the Move is going to create a real buzz about the place and if you like fashion and care about the latest trends for summer, then you won’t be disappointed.

“It is a fantastic opportunity to get some free fashion advice from one of the best stylists in the country.”
