‘The Haunted Dress’ is the theme of this year’s fashion show, giving designers the opportunity to explore wild and dark plot lines within their designs, and let their imagination run riot in a theatrical display.
Coexist is based in the Hamilton House and in true collaborative style, each night gives Bristol residents the chance to peruse the current stock from designers, both established and new, with the added option to pre-order or purchase on site via the Buyers’ Lounge.
Featured designers include Dutty Girl and Puckoo Couture, with their distinctive mix of high fashion and street wear. The show encourages younger businesses to showcase their work alongside vinatge wear and accessories: this year seeing the first showings from local success stories Thomas Frances Apparel, and Neat Frontage, who offer sportswear with a tailored twist.
Fashion show founder Butzi Shlaadt says “Bristol has so much talent, and Coexist have so much to offer. The standard of designers is so high, but there is a unique feel in this city – it has it’s own story. I’m so glad we can come back for another year, even bigger and better.”
Tickets are available from Hamilton House reception and online via Brown Paper Tickets.
