Something for The Weekend… flea markets and student fashion

UWE Fashion says stitched

Looking for a fashionable fix this weekend? Read on…

First up, catch the future of British fashion on Friday night at Fashion says stitched. The University of the West of England‘s brightest final year fashion and textiles students are presenting their graduate collections at The Trinity Centre tomorrow night. Tickets cost £10, or £8 if you’re a student, and the evening includes a catwalk show, along with an exhibition of textiles, fashion illustration, photography and styling. Click here for more info.

Folk House Flea Market

On Saturday, you should get yourself down to Folk House on Park Street for their annual flea market. Entry to the event is free, and promises a mix of vintage clothing, homewares, books and bric-a-brac. This is the centre’s fourth flea market and is a great way to support local, independent traders. Park Street also boasts loads of fantastic independent boutiques and charity shops, so you’ll be spoilt for choice once you leave Folk House, plus you can even get a free lunch if you pop down the road to College Green!

Ashton Gate flea market

If you like vintage then you’re in luck, as the monthly Bristol Flea Market is back this Sunday. Held at the Ashton Gate Stadium, this event promises over a hundred stalls selling vintage clothes, fabric and homewares. I picked up a gorgeous Paisley scarf back in November, so I can’t wait to see what gems are on offer this weekend. Doors open at 9am and entry is £3 – I think there are discounts for students, but I’m not a 100% on this, so it may be worth ringing ahead if you want to find out!

That’s your weekend sorted. Have I missed anything? Let me know about other exciting Bristol events by commenting below…
