Showcasing 1940s Fashion by Horrockses
In August 2022, the UK Media and Events event team worked with our client to provide a small portable catwalk and a full PA system for this fashion event under the shade of the canopy of Preston Market in Lancashire.
This outdoor event showcased 1940s Fashion by Horrockses, which forms part of the rich history of Preston.
As explained at Made in Preston, ‘Horrockses Fashions was created by Horrockses, Crewdson & Co Ltd to use the high-quality cotton that the Preston factories had a reputation for. The strategy called for top-class designers to create up-market ‘exclusive off the peg’ clothing that would be largely based on London and Paris couture styling. The range was launched in April 1946.’
