Scorching Saturday of the best summer styles at Cascades Shopping Centre

Centre’s Fashion Runway event proves a real hit with visitors.
The people of Portsmouth were treated to a fantastic Saturday of seasonal styling this weekend, as shoppers headed to Cascades in their droves for a very special summer event.
Those about to head off on holiday experienced a different kind of runway, as models strutted their stuff in free fashion shows throughout the day. Showcasing sizzling summer styles and providing plenty of inspiration for those hitting the beach, strolling on the boardwalk or keeping it local at a barbecue with friends, the best the centre has to offer was on display.
“It was a fantastic day of all things fashion on Saturday,” said Cascades Centre Director, Rhoda Joseph. “We have a great range of brands spread across our stores – from small, boutique local companies right the way up to worldwide, household names and our retailers pulled out all the stops to make sure that shoppers were able to see the hottest summer trends.”
As well as seasonal style, students were well catered for, with graduation themed and inspired outfits on display - providing plenty of food for thought for anyone after last minute inspiration before any end of term parties, graduation balls or for those going to prom.
“It’s such a busy time of year with so much happening and we wanted to capture that in our Fashion Runway event,” added Rhoda. “With such a large student population in the city, we wanted to make sure that there was something for everyone - including those finishing a long year of university, those at the start of a long summer break and all the students in-between.
“The response from shoppers was fantastic and we’re already in the process of planning our next fashion-themed event.”
