For fashion lovers who can’t resist the allure of designer labels but equally want to stretch their shopping budget to the max, McArthurGlen’s Designer Outlet Fashion Month is the diary date for them. Celebrating the thrill of seeking out designer labels for less, September 2012 will see the launch of the UK’s first ever Designer Outlet Fashion Month at McArthurGlen Ashford (, as part of a national initiative hosted by Europe’s leading Designer Outlet Group.

McArthurGlen’s Designer Outlet Fashion Month will be championed by model and Cultural Ambassador for the British Fashion Council, Laura Bailey; acclaimed singer songwriter currently on tour with Prince, Delilah; and top style blogger Sandra from 5inchandup ( Each with their own unique style, the trio are self-confessed shopping thrill seekers who share a passion for finding designer gems for less. All three have been styled and snapped in their favourite finds from McArthurGlen’s AW collections and will share their ‘how to shop outlet’ tips, ultimate style guidelines and sartorial advice for the new season.

Continuing their on-going support of young British design talent, McArthurGlen has also teamed up with Holly Fulton – one of Britain’s bright young things - who has designed an exclusive tote bag to help celebrate McArthurGlen’s Designer Outlet Fashion Month. Shoppers will have the chance to pick up one of the limited edition bags at the centre throughout the month.

Natasha Jerram, Marketing Manager at McArthurGlen Ashford says: “Designer Outlet Fashion Month is a brilliant opportunity for us to show label lovers that they can find on-trend and seasonal pieces at McArthurGlen Ashford for up to 60% less than the high street. With top brands like Fiorelli, Ted Baker and Kurt Geiger, shoppers can discover the secret of outlet shopping and find stylish fashion and accessories for AW12.”
