Specsavers Newtownards hit the catwalk recently as they took park in the #LoveArds Fashion Show on Friday 03 March.

Fashionable Frames

Frames from Kylie Minogue, Gant, Roxy and Tommy Hilfiger accessorised styles from local stores and were modelled on the catwalk throughout the night.

Leigh Nelson, store director at Specsavers Newtownards said: ‘We loved being part of the #LoveArds event.

'This was a great opportunity for us to show what fashionable frames we have on offer in store, as we know not everyone realises we have frames from some amazing designers.’

Ards – a shopping destination

As well as featuring on the catwalk, the Specsavers pod meant that guests of the evening had a chance to try on some frames for themselves throughout the night.

Leigh continued: ‘We had so much interest from all the guests, and Gemma Garrett, who hosted the evening, wore a pair of Kylie specs all night – they actually look very alike!’

A total success, the #LoveArds Fashion Show was produced for local stores to showcase their products and re-launch the town as a shopping destination.

In recent months, the Public Realm Development reached completion stages, meaning new pavements, lighting and shop-fronts throughout the town.
