Clothes Show, The

Clothes Show, The
   The BBC launched The Clothes Show, the first mainstream television fashion show, in the 1988s, later allocating it a regular Sunday afternoon slot alongside the Antiques Roadshow. Presented by, amongst others, British designer and entrepreneur Jeff Banks and Caryn Franklin, the show included features on new fashion directions, both designer and high-street, and on aspects of the fashion industry. The show also featured extremely popular audience-participation slots such as ‘Bride of the Year’, ‘make-overs’ for members of the public and competitions to find new models and designers. The annual Clothes Show Live held in Birmingham is probably the most popular British fashion event open to the general public, and in the spring of 1988 the Clothes Show Magazine was launched for the programme’s eight million viewers.
