Head of Fashion Week Jess Wickham said: “We will be giving out free exclusive fashion week tote bags and programmes at five locations in an area stretching from Bailgate to St Marks.

“People should look out for our pop-up box offices, which will also be selling tickets for our fabulous finale fashion show on May 5 in Alive Church, Newland.

“On April 28, we are challenging people to be part of a live mannequin display for Macmillan. Models will be featured in the store’s windows – between 12 noon and 1pm – showing the latest Spring and Summer looks.”

There will also be a children’s fashion event on May 1, taking place at Debenhams at St Marks Shopping Centre between 11am and 2pm.

“We’ve also got a brilliant event for teenagers who want to really shine at their school or college party,” Jess added.

“Debenhams at St Marks Shopping Centre is hosting a prom night on May 4 to showcase all the latest looks for teens determined to dazzle.

“This event, which runs from 5pm to 7pm, is free – but people must get a ticket by visiting Eventbrite.

“There’s also an exciting opportunity to enter a special draw where one lucky young man and woman will each win an outfit and makeover, worth over £150.

“Then on Friday, May 5, everyone is going to celebrate Lincoln Fashion Week at our Finale Catwalk Show in Alive Church. The show starts at 7pm and people can buy their tickets now.”

Tickets for the event range in price from £6 and are available here. You can also buy them on the night at the door.
