Bristol Fashion Week to launch with a sonic boom at Aerospace Bristol
To mark the upcoming launch of the new museum, Aerospace Bristol has invited The Mall to partner with them for an exciting season of Bristol Fashion Week with a very special launch event. The South West’s biggest fashion event will be transported for one night only to Aerospace Bristol – the new home of the last Concorde ever to fly – for an exclusive VIP launch show. The event will take place on Wednesday 27th September in Aerospace Bristol’s Concorde Hangar, under the wings of the iconic supersonic jet.
Lloyd Burnell, Executive Director of Aerospace Bristol said “With the most glamourous aircraft the world has ever seen on display in a truly unique event space, Aerospace Bristol’s Concorde Hangar is the ideal venue for Bristol Fashion Week’s launch event. We’re delighted to host this stylish occasion under the wings of Concorde and celebrate the upcoming launch of the new museum, which will take visitors on a fascinating journey through more than a century of remarkable aviation achievements.”
Maria Crayton, Head of Marketing at Bristol Fashion Week said: “The opening of Aerospace Bristol is one of the most significant events in the South West this year and we’re thrilled to have been invited to partner with them on this. Concorde not only provides the backdrop to our launch show but also the concept for the whole of fashion week in the pavilion. Concorde could fly to New York in 3.5 hours so we’re taking the audience on the shopping trip of a lifetime to the big apple!”
Following the launch event at Aerospace Bristol, Bristol Fashion Week will fly back to the fashion pavilion at The Mall for a further 13 catwalk shows, taking place between Thursday 28 September and Sunday 1 October. Audiences will be immersed in the full Concorde experience and taken on a ‘flight of fashion’ to style capital of the world New York. This season’s hottest trends will be paired with iconic New York locations and audiences transported on a fashion tour of the city.Tags: aerospace, concorde, fashion Back to news
