Take a step into Fashion Through the Decades with Queensgate

Queensgate is hosting a glittering Fashion Through the Decades celebration on Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 July in what promises to be the biggest fashion event in the centre’s history.

Stylists, make-up artists and retailers will come together to offer a jam-packed, exciting two days of talks, masterclasses and 1-2-1 advice sessions, giving visitors the opportunity to learn tricks of the trade and leave feeling confident, sassy and in-the-know when it comes to fashion and beauty.

Everyone is invited to the totally FREE event, which promises to be fun and fabulous from start to finish. You’ll get to see key looks from retailers, with many picking up on trends linking back as far as the 1980s, now with a modern-day twist to bring them up to date for 2022. Expect to discover all of today’s hottest picks, which will spruce up your wardrobe and have you feeling and looking the best and most fashion-forward version of yourself in no time.

 

Plus, you can take selfies galore with insta-worthy photo backdrops including a giant roller-skate, supersized ghetto blaster and a fabulous lips sofa. Queensgate’s Style Ambassadors will be on hand to help you get the perfect shot, and to help you with anything else you might need on the day.
