St Helens shopping centre transformed into giant catwalk by renowned fashion expert

VISITORS to a St Helens shopping centre were treated to a fashion spectacle when top models took to a giant catwalk to showcase the latest styles.

Fashion on the Move saw models taking part in a flash mob-style spectacular at Church Square Shopping Centre.

Stores taking part in the event, hosted by former international model Sally Mansell, included River Island, Topshop and BHS, Davinci Menswear and Fat Face.

Sally, who has also hosted parties for Hollywood A-listers George Clooney and Mark Wahlberg, transformed the shopping centre into a giant catwalk. Models and performers burst into dance every hour, showing off the latest looks available in the mall.

Shopper Jenny Hogan and her 10 year old daughter Grace, a pupil at St Julie's Primary School in Eccleston, St Helens, loved the show and were inspired to buy items they saw on show. "Grace spotted a pair of shorts on one of the models and we're going to buy them for the summer," said Jenny, a nurse, who also has a son Jack, 8. "We didn't know it was happening but it was a nice surprise and great fun."

Michelle Alexander and her daughter Isobelle, 8, from Sutton, St Helens, also enjoyed the fashion show. Michelle, who works at the University of Liverpool, said:- "We were on our way to buy shoes for Isobelle and came across the show. It's really good and Isobelle particularly loves the dancing."

Church Square Shopping Centre manager Steven Brogan said:- "Fashion on the Move proved to be a terrific event, succeeding in creating a real buzz around the centre. Shoppers really enjoyed seeing the latest styles, as well as watching the dancing.  We were lucky to have a top fashion expert like Sally who has so much experience in the industry and really knows her stuff."

Highlighting the styles available in Church Square in the coming months, Sally predicts spring and summer trends will include cut off shoulders, while bead and trim will feature heavily.

"Bold, graphic stripes will be popular, especially in primary colours, but at the same time, floral wallpaper style fabrics are coming through, alongside chunky, angular jewellery. I think ankle straps on shoes on making a comeback, while skinny jeans are being left behind in a return to more structured denims." said Sally.

Church Square Shopping Centre is open daily and home to a range of big name stores; such as:- River Island, BHS, Boots and Superdrug; along with independent retailers plus the busy St Mary's Market. Details on what's happening at the centre can be found online.
