Digital publisher and media platform Shortlist media has announced that Stylist Live, the live component of its fashion and lifestyle magazine Stylist, will be expanding out of London and into Manchester.
The show, which has previously been held at the Olympia London, will now come to retail and leisure destination intu Trafford Centre. It will run from 8-9 September 2018.
The event will feature a line-up of catwalk shows featuring the latest fashion trends from intu retailers, as well as sessions with influential speakers and pop-up boutiques.
intu says that over 350,000 visitors are expected to pass through the centre during the show, and experience the variety of fashion trends on display.
Roger Binks, customer experience director at intu, said: “intu Trafford Centre attracts some of the most stylish and fashion-conscious shoppers in the UK, making it the perfect destination for Stylist Love’s first event outside London.
“Our customers know their fashion, love the centre and have high expectations for the events we run, so we know that we can create something very special and truly memorable for them at intu Trafford Centre.”
Intu has partnered with digital publisher and media platform Shortlist Media to help put the show together.
Mariam Ahmed, events director at Shortlist Media, said: “As a Mancunian by birth, I am delighted that we’re expanding into Manchester in our first major foray into regional events.
“Everyone is incredibly excited to create something unique and we look forward to bringing the brand to life in collaboration with intu. We hope it will be the first brand extension of many.”
