Organisers of a two-day fashion and beauty event in Sheffield hope to raise thousands of pounds for The Children’s Hospital in Sheffield.

Sheffield Style Show, returning for its second year on October 3 and 4, will showcase fashion brands, accessories and health, wellness and beauty products.

There will also be fashion shows, pop-up food shops and entertainment.

Charlotte Calvert, from Millhouses, started the event last year after noticing a gap in the market for high-profile fashion events in Yorkshire.

Now, with the help of her best friend, Cheryl Cunningham, she is hoping to attract hundreds to the event.

“There are fashion shows in London and Manchester, and Birmingham’s clothes show has been going for decades,” said Charlotte.

“I definitely noticed there was something missing to fill the gap in Sheffield, which is why I wanted to start the Style Show.

“I want to re-educate people about the range of styles and budgets available in boutiques across the city and the wider region, and to show that they aren’t all the expensive places people think they are.”

Tickets for the event, which is sponsored by Panache Lingerie, are £10 per day, with all the cash going to The Children’s Hospital, where Charlotte received life-saving treatment for a burst appendix in 2000.

Sheffield-based men’s fashion brand, Ten Men Clothing, as seen on stars from TV’s The Only Way is Essex and Geordie Shore, will be debuting their AW15 collection at the event.

Sister, on Ecclesall Road, will also be showcasing its new range.

Tickets are available for the event, to be held at High Storrs School, at www.sheffieldstyleshow.com.
