Visitors to Doncaster will be treated to the latest in summer fashion and accessories at the Frenchgate Shopping Centre when the shopping centre holds its spectacular spring summer shows on May 23 and 24.

Summer high street trends from monochrome to pastels will be making their way down the catwalk to the latest sounds with four shows each day. With a choice of two shows from 11am to 3pm featuring over twenty stores there will be something to suit everyone. Located outside Debenhams on the upper mall, the shows will include men’s, ladies and plus size summer fashion from stores including Debenhams, Next and River Island.

Laurie Barton Wright, Centre Manager, said: “The fashion event is a great date in our calendar and we are really looking forward to seeing the best in summer fashion on the catwalk just in time for the weather and holidays!

“It’s really good fun and the shows are lively and entertainment for all the family. We have some extra activity such as the fashion wagon and the sampling so that there’s a little more for shoppers to enjoy. We work hard all year round to make the centre a fun day out and this promises to be another fantastic free event.”

With plenty to watch on the catwalk, there’s also lots for shoppers to enjoy off the catwalk including pop up stands by Lush, free samples of summer drinks from Costa Coffee, special exclusive discount vouchers and a chance to win £250 summer fashion for one lucky male and one female.

On the lower mall there will be the ‘Frenchgate Fashion Wagon’ – a VW camper van which is an interactive photo booth. Full of fashion props this unique experience allows shoppers to pose and see their images uploaded onto social media.

Shoppers can also take part in the interactive catwalk wall have their photos uploaded to the centre’s Facebook site to win £25 voucher for the best photo – pose and win!
