The catwalk was compered by ITV presenter Katy Rickitt, who runs Dexter and Jones craft beer and artisan gin bar with husband Adam, who played Coronation Street character Nick Tilsley.

Katy said: “It was so wonderful to see all of Knutsford’s boutiques come together showcasing what we can do as a business community.

“I was so proud to be part of it.”

Outfits from more than 14 independent boutiques and sustainable shopping options were put on show.

More than 40 volunteers and friends of the boutique owners took part as models and dressers behind the scenes.

The show also featured a pop up from Pulse of Perfumery who highlighted three fragrances and held a prize draw to win the scents.

Each shop involved hosted events throughout the day including free prize draws, visiting stylists and pop ups from beauty salon Roberta Beauty Redefined.

Angela Cooper, manager of Paris Ladies Boutique on King Street, said: “Our shop was so busy after the fashion show.

“We had so many customers visit us.

“The town had a lovely buzz as customers discovered what a wonderful selection of fashions shops we have available in Knutsford.”

Flash Fashion was sponsored by Redrow homes and Happy Radio.

The event was launched in 2019 as a collaboration between Knutsford Town Council and local boutiques to highlight the wonderful collection of fashion retailers in the town.

A similar event in May was hailed a huge success.
