Alternative Fashion Fest is the first of it’s kind: A Socially conscious Fashion Show aimed at showcasing fashion design talent and retail brands local to each city we visit, whilst raising funding and awareness for The Sophie Lancaster Foundation and other charities in the anti-bullying, anti-hate crime, social inclusion and diversity sector. Lindy, PR manager of Alternative Fashion Fest, gave me the low down on what’s to be expected at their Preston and Manchester dates:
We have the most fabulous and diverse cast of models and performers ever to grace a runway, with fabulous music, entertainment and fashion all wrapped up in a big dose of tolerance and positive body image.
The soundtrack to the night got the biggest applause on our pilot show with some rockin’ tunes and kick ass mainstream/metal mash-ups to give you a taste of our amazing subculture and what we have to offer.
Whether you’re a designer, a keen sponsor or just wanting to spectate, we look forward to entertaining you with a show like nothing you have seen before. Roll up! we’re coming to a city near you!
And what’s even better is that there are some pretty awesome celebrities lined up at the next couple of shows too!! You can currently purchase tickets for the Preston, Manchester, London and Birmingham shows online at Eventbrite here. A proportion of all ticket sales is split 50/50 between a local charity from each city we tour and our own chosen charity, The Sophie Lancaster Foundation.
