Cambridge Style Week (it’s actually closer to two weeks long) will comprise catwalk shows, pop-up boutiques, in-store events and more, and was opened by Miss England, Cambridge medical student Carina Tyrrell, at the Grafton centre on 21 February.
Still to come, this weekend, is a vintage swishing event at St Andrews Street Baptist Church, 1-3pm. Bring along your unwanted clothes and exchange them for something you do want! Tea and cake will also be served. The Cambridge Etsy Pop Up Shop will also be in situ at the Round Church selling a range of handmade crafts and goodies (11am-5pm).
If you’re anywhere near Fitzroy and Sidney Street on Saturday, you might spot the Cambridge Style Week Taxi: it’s actually a photobooth, so hop inside, get your picture taken and enter their Facebook and Twitter competition for a chance to win top prizes.
Then, consider yourself invited to an exclusive red carpet event on 3 March for a screening of Advanced Style, based on the blog by Ari Seth Cohen which celebrates New York’s most fabulous seniors, who haven’t let age get in the way of expresing themselves through what they wear.
And check out the in-store offers at John Lewis, LK Bennett, Hobbs and The White Company at the Grand Arcade on 4 March.
The Cambridge Style Week Icon Ball, also at the Quy Mill, promises an evening of glamour on 7 March, featuring a fabulous three-course meal, charity auction and dancing. Visit the Cambridge Style Week website for the full programme.
