From Thursday 15th to Saturday 17th September you have the chance to receive personalised advice from an expert stylist during your visit to Durham City as part of Stylists In The City.
As part of September’s Fashion InDurham weekend, we’ve organised stylists and beauty experts to provide free, one-on-one consultations in St Nicholas’ Church Hall, the Market Place.
A skilled stylist and personal shopper, Belinda Alexander and her team are returning to the City after offering similar appointments in May as part of the launch of late night opening in Durham. She will give you the chance to discuss and get advice about your personal style and upcoming seasonal trends, with support from retailers across the City too.
We’re really excited to bring back Stylists In the City this month, especially as it’s going to be bigger and better than before. Not only do we have Belinda back to give her top style advice, but beauty, makeup and hair experts from businesses across the City are also getting involved to offer support and advice during the appointments.
Everyone who signs up to the appointments will be entered into a great competition prize draw. The competition winner will receive an overnight stay in the City courtesy of Radisson Blu, Durham as well as an outfit up to the value of £100 from Woven or Andersons and a hair styling piece from Balmain matched to your hair colour.
Open to both men and women, you can book a 20 minute appointment online for Thursday (2pm-7pm), Friday (11am-4pm) or Saturday (11am-4pm). During the consultative appointments the stylists will help you to better understand what shapes, cuts and colours will best suit you and how to work these into your wardrobe to make sure you’re keeping up with the Autumn/Winter trends. This way we hope we can help you feel comfortable and good about yourself, especially with Christmas party season on the horizon!
Michaela will then be back in the City on Sunday to accompany some of those she’s met at the appointments to take them shopping and support them with trying out any advice and new styles suggested during the initial appointment. Ordinarily such would cost you a considerable sum. However, if you make an appointment during the preceding three days, you will be able to have this service for FREE!
Remember to take advantage of the Dine InDurham and Fashion InDurham’s special offers around the City, as well as enjoying quality live music in venues throughout Durham as part of Live InDurham too. So come and enjoy all Durham City has to offer across the weekend from shopping, dining, running errands, socialising, with the added bonus of receiving some personalised fashion advice.
