April 2009 might seem a long way off right now, but mark it in your diaries if you're a Brummie fashionista, because Style in the City is coming back to Birmingham! From Thursday 23rd to Saturday 25th, my old stomping ground becomes the place to go for the ultimate shopping experience. There'll be discounts aplenty, catwalk shows and special treats at all the big shopping haunts (The Bullring, The Mailbox, The Pavillions, House of Fraser etc) plus lots more...

Expect a stylish urban catwalk show, a makeover-style live show hosted by fashion experts and a luxury pampering zone. Transport is put on for all ticket holders, while VIPs will get chauffeur-driven cars and lunch at Selfridges into the bargain.

Tickets are one sale now, for £25 for a single VIP day pass or £30 for two days. Platinum passes, priced £65 each, include front row seats at the main catwalk show, lunch at Selfridges and a private chauffeured vehicle.

Go to or call 0871 230 7150 for tickets. I'll see you there!
