Bath's in fashion this spring

Bath’s big fashion event, Bath in Fashion, takes place Wednesday 23rd to Sunday 27th March 2011. The event spotlights the strength of on-trend fashion the city offers with its great independent designer boutiques and strong high street names; fashion heritage and a growing reputation as a hotbed for young designers. So gather your girlfriends for a fun time in the spa city.

Now into its second year, Bath in Fashion events can be found across the city in dramatic and unique locations. Where else can you catch models parading on 2000 year old pavements; only at the Roman Baths? The programme is designed to celebrate all aspects of the industry with appeal beyond the catwalk including fashion talks and exhibitions; workshops; designer fashion trails around Bath’s independent boutiques, fashion film screenings and swishing events, always popular when times are tough. Retailers city-wide will be getting involved with exclusive in-store offers and competitions, as well as staging live mannequins in store windows throughout the streets of Bath.

Bath is steeped in fashion heritage, with the Georgians flocking to the city for their fashion fix whilst coming bang up-to- date, Milsom Street was awarded the title of ‘Britain’s Best Fashion Street’ in the 2010 Google Street View Awards. Bath’s fashion credentials remain as strong as ever.

Bath houses one of the world’s leading collections of contemporary and historical dress at its Fashion Museum in the grand Assembly Rooms and Manager, Rosemary Harden is programmed for a talk with local fashion guru Iain R. Webb. The ‘Marilyn, Hollywood Icon’ exhibition at the American Museum in Britain displays a collection of the screen goddess’s gowns, glamour from a bygone era. Bath Spa University’s Fashion faculty is gaining recognition for its design courses and regularly features in Graduate Fashion Week. Students from the University are involved in the organising group for Bath in Fashion 2011 to ensure the festival champions cutting edge fashions and shows relevant to all audiences.

Bath in Fashion 2011 is a Future Bath Plus initiative to develop and maintain Bath’s status as a fashionable shopping destination attracting visitors from near and far who appreciate the superb variety of shopping as well as everything else the city has to offer.
