It has been announced that, after many years of being held at the NEC, The Clothes Show will relocate to Liverpool in 2017.
The Clothes Show has been held at the NEC in Birmingham for the past 27 years, but next year will change its venue to Liverpool.
The event will be hosted on 7th to 9th July at ACC Liverpool, but will also extend to other Liverpool locations.
The Clothes Show will allow visitors access to catwalk shows, meet and greets with famous names, interviews, music performances, demonstrations and shopping from more than 250 fashion and beauty brands. There will also be food and drink stands for visitors to enjoy.
As well as the change of location, The Clothes Show will present the British Style Collective which is an interactive, three day festival across Liverpool’s iconic venues.
The festival will celebrate fashion, beauty, music, wellbeing, fitness, health and education, and will support The Clothes Show, giving visitors more choice of things to see and locations to visit.
Joe Anderson, mayor of Liverpool said: “The Clothes Show has long been the leading fashion exhibition in the country. It is testament to the reputation of this city and its credibility when it comes to staging major events that Haymarket has chosen to make Liverpool the home to one of their flagship brands.”
