Lion Yard to host Moving Catwalk Fashion Show

17th August 2009

On Wednesday 26th August at 6pm, Lion Yard Shopping Centre will host a Moving Catwalk Fashion Show as the Shopping Centre celebrates the opening of the escalators which form a key part of the Lion Yard Centre Expansion Project.  The escalators will transport customers from the first to the second floor of the Shopping Centre where the entrance to the new New Look store will be.

The new store is due to open in early December, the current New Look store will continue to trade up until this time. 

The build up to the show starts at 5.30pm with the handover of the new store keys to the New Look Manager.  There will also be canapés, chocolates and free gifts on offer for shoppers to take advantage of.  At 6pm the Fashion Show will begin. Models from all fashion retailers in the Centre including New Look, JD Sports and Miss Selfridge will be dancing on the Moving Catwalk to all the latest chart toppers.

The Fashion Show is a fantastic chance for shoppers to see what Lion Yard stores have to offer in their autumn and winter ranges.  The new season’s outfits will be modelled by staff from the participating fashion stores so come along and give them your support while getting some great ideas for your new season’s wardrobe.  The event is free, so all shoppers have to do is turn up and enjoy the show.  The stores are open until 8pm so there’s plenty of time to pick up a fabulous new outfit after the show.

The New Look deal is a progressive step for Lion Yard following the opening of Grand Arcade last year and a redevelopment project which reinforces the Centre’s position as one of the main retail hubs in Cambridge city centre.  The new New Look store, which has a state of the art design, will stock the full fashion range for women, men, children and teens as well as specialist ranges including shoe and lingerie departments.
