Tickets are available for a West End fashion show taking place next month.

Retailers along Byres Road are taking part in the show at Hillhead Library on May 6 and 7.

Tickets are £7.50 and are available from participating shops.

Around ten local clothing shops, including high street fashion, vintage and charity shops, will showcase the eclectic fashion of the West End.

Parts of the proceeds will go to the participating charity shops (Cancer Research, British Heart Foundation and Oxfam), and the aim with the show is to showcase the local clothing businesses and give people a reason to come through to West End.

David Howat, chair of Byres Road & Lanes Business Improvement District, said:

“We are determined to put Byres Road & the Lanes back on the map as one of Glasgow’s top retail areas.

“We are all very excited at the BID to be hosting this fashion show over two nights to showcase the quality and diversity of the fashion shops in the area.”
