Gatwick Airport To Host Fashion Week In August

Posted: Updated:

Did you know that Gatwick airport (the other airport outside of London) has a fashion week? Yea, we didn't either. Starting August 5th, the airport will transform into a style maven's dream, complete with a runway show in which both the male and female winners earn a contract with Storm modeling agency. To boot? English model Lily Cole will be the judge of the inaugural event, according to Stuff.com.

This isn't the only event at the second annual Gatwick Fashion Week, though (which is really a four-day affair). Throughout the week, Kirsty Drury, who styles Kylie Minogue and Claudia Schiffer, will put together ensembles from airport shops.

The airport will also be home to a "pamper area" where a team of stylists will give advice to travelers.

If you're flying through Gatwick between next Thursday to Sunday, check it out.
