NEW 2013: Sat 2nd March
DEDICATED, CQ Creative Hubb, Lace Market, Nottingham

Dedicated Fashion: On 2nd March Curiosity Haus will be hosting a limited number of stalls for fashion and fashion accessory designers as part of a brand new event. Teaming up with I’m not from London and Notts about Music, this will be the first in a ongoing series of new and exciting events raising money for various charities in Nottingham.

Dedicated Fashion will take place at I’m Not From London’s headquarters (CQ Hub) on 8 Stoney Street in the fashionable setting of the Lace Market. The event will showcase the city’s hottest fashion, arts, crafts and musical talents. All proceeds from Dedicated will go to Framework, a charity who work hard to get the homeless off the streets and provide them with the resources they need for a brighter future.

The event’s main attraction will be a fashion show featuring clothes and accessories from local designers as well as a selection of top end high street names on a custom made catwalk, unique to Dedicated. Designer pieces will be worn by a mixture of professional models, Nottingham Trent University fashion students and big names from the local music scene. Our out door fair will be held under marquees hosting a handful of carefully selected Nottingham based designers and artists who will present and sell their latest lines giving attendees the chance to purchase new and limited edition items.

Running late into the night there will be live music from some of Nottingham’s most up and coming live bands, Just James, I am Lono & Tray Electric, and DJs including Stiff Kittens making the occasion not only an arts & fashion charity fundraiser but also a not to be missed date in the Nottingham social calendar.

Applications are now open, please Apply Online.
