Former TOWIE star Amy Childs has been at Newcastle's Intu Eldon Square for the launch of her new fashion collection.
It's part of a month-long celebration of fashion at the shopping centre, which has joined forces with national & regional celebrities to launch a campaign supporting youth homeless charity Centrepoint.
Shoppers are being encouraged to donate good quality clothes suitable for work wear, and the garments will be distributed directly to young people attending job interviews.
The Big intu Clothes Drop perspex collection bank will be sited outside adidas on St Andrew’s Way from 17th -21st March to coincide with the shopping centre’s Spring/Summer fashion shows (Fri 20th & Sat 21st March) in association with Hello! Fashion Monthly.
Amy's donated an outfit from her new range of work wear at Dorothy Perkins, and Amy's been modelling her range today in the first of the two-day fashion spectacular.
She's been speaking to Capital about all things fashion, and told us she has a bit of a soft spot for Geordies.
"I just really like it here. I love all the girls, they're so glamorous. A bit like us Essex girls!
I think we are very much alike!"
Joan Taylor, intu Eldon Square’s Marketing Manager, said:
"Throughout the month of March, fashion will take over intu Eldon Square as we highlight the very latest fashions, trends and styles, provide true inspiration and show our customers exactly what we have to offer for the coming season.
We are delighted that Amy Childs is taking part in our catwalk shows which are hugely popular and always a highlight of our events calendar.”
