Newcastle Fashion Week 2011 – Schedule

Fashion, Newcastle Fashion Week
Wednesday, 27th April, 2011

Newcastle Fashion Week is fast approaching, with events, teasers andthings already happening around the city now. I did ask the PR people to email me some things and keep me updated, but they dont seem to be the most professional of people, they sent 2 low quality images and a press release, but no further updates. There was a cool feature in Fenwicks window which I could have featured, unfortunately nobody from their PR told me and it was yesterday – Not very impressed.

Anyway, here is the schedule for the Newcastle Fashion Week. There is lots on and it all officially starts on Saturday 14th May and runs for a week.
