The search is on to find FB Fashion Ball’s next top model

Young professionals and their business leaders have a chance to take to the catwalk at the next FB Fashion Ball on 27 April 2023 in Leeds. Could this be you?

This popular annual event established for 25 years, turns Yorkshire’s business leaders and their colleagues into model professionals for one night only to raise money for their firm’s chosen local charity.

The is the FB Fashion Ball’s long-term media partner.

Exciting new plans are in place to welcome back hundreds of professionals from the Yorkshire business community for an evening of recognition and celebration as part of a glitzy black-tie charity gala dinner dance featuring a live fashion show like no other with Reiss, Ted Baker, John Lewis & Partners, Jigsaw and Hawes & Curtis to name a few catwalk partners.

Guests will be treated to a red-carpet drinks reception to include a shopping fair and beauty pamper stations, before sitting down to enjoy a three-course dinner during which, the organisers will recognise and award this year’s Yorkshire Heroes in business.

The second half of the evening will feature the renowned fashion show seeing high profile familiar faces from Yorkshire’s business scene strutting their stuff.

The event’s prize draw will support Bradford-based charity LIFE Reach.

The evening will draw to a close with dancing until late but for those left wanting more, there will be a lush VIP After Show Party with welcome drinks in association with J9 Advisory.
