Celebration of Style event kicks off in Liverpool

A new three-day fashion, arts and design event launched in Liverpool yesterday with a dinner hosted by designer Matthew Williamson.

Celebration of Style, which runs from November 13 to 15, presents a series of art shows, fashion workshops and in-store events. It is being held at various locations across Merseyside, including the Royal Liver Building, Cunard Building and Knowsley Hall, with a central ‘hub’ at the Titanic Hotel in Stanley Dock, Regent Road.

The event was the brainchild of Justine Mills, owner of Liverpool-based women’s boutique Cricket, and Denise Harris, managing director of Liverpool Food and Drink Festival organiser SK Events. The pair came up with the idea last year as a way to throw a spotlight on Liverpool as a stylish and creative city.

As part of a range of events, from 10:30am today members of the public can attend an ‘Influence of Style’ workshop and meet people from the fashion industry, including Mills and a representative from headline sponsor Matalan. This evening Cricket will present its fashion night out, including a catwalk show.

On Saturday, retailers including Kurt Geiger, Matalan, Oasis, Ted Baker and Marks & Spencer will host in-store events, including catwalk shows and DJ sets.

Indie gift shop Nook & Cranny will also host a Celebration of Style clothes swap tomorrow, to which people are invited to bring their pre-loved clothing and accessories.

Over the three days, a ‘Transmitting Andy Warhol’ exhibition will be on at Tate Liverpool.
