People looking for unusual Christmas gifts could find just what they need at a charity fashion show tomorrow.

The student run event, hosted by the city’s University of Central Lancashire, will include a catwalk show and pop-up shops selling clothes, jewellery, art prints and much more - all at bargain prices. 
The one-of-a-kind shopping event will focus on pre-loved, sustainable fashion and celebrate individuality.

Among highlights of the night will be a 40-model catwalk show displaying a mixture of student and graduate designs, alongside clothing from Age UK, BooHoo and student pre-loved donations, with all models dressed by the students themselves.
