TOP fashion expert JP Hevey is coming to the city to offer hints and tips at a fashion show in Gunwharf Quays.

The stylist will offer colour and style advice at free drop-in sessions as part of the three day event, Closer to Fashion.

Organised in partnership with Glorious Goodwood, the show will use the theme of a day at the races to showcase the latest collections available in the centre.

As well as the catwalk display, there will be a vintage show organised and produced by students from the University of Portsmouth as part of their creative writing and drama degree. All visitors who attend the catwalk events will be offered exclusive discounts for Goodwood’s race calendar, as well as the chance to win race tickets.

The popular Love Southsea boutique market will showcase a collection of hand-made jewellery and unique clothing.

The centre’s director, Peter Emery, said: ‘We’re very excited about Closer to Fashion – it really is a must for anyone who is excited about fashion or who would like help and advice on creating a new look.’

Open from Friday, May 18 to Sunday, May 20. For more, see
