It was a welcome return to the fashion shows at the Whitehaven Festival in 2011.

There was 2 shows on the Saturday and 2 shows on the Sunday in a special tent with a catwalk and sound system on the Bulwark Quay near the Made in Cumbria food area - so it was a good chance to get some nourishment and take a seat.

Blue dresses

The first show on the Saturday was by two local fashion boutiques - Hayley Cleaver's boutique, Bimbows on Strand Street and 56 Roper Street. Both shops provide a great alternative to the big chains that sell the same on every high street.

The models were local students and had to work very hard with lots of changes required.

Saturday's second fashion show was by designers in their second year at the University of Central Lancashire or UCLAN.
