Do you have a passion for fashion? Do you have a style icon who you like to emulate with vintage inspired finds? Are you a charity shopping addict with an eye for designer bargains?

Be part of the North East’s biggest virtual fashion competition all from the comfort of your own home.

With London Fashion Week 2020 starting on September 18th, Butterwick Hospice Care have been inspired and bring to you ‘Runway Rivals’ – an online showcase of your best second-hand and up-cycled clothing and accessory finds. Whether sourced from a charity shop, bought from eBay or Depop, a hand-me-down from your gran or swapped with your best friend we want to see it all!

There are lots of categories to enter and prizes up for grabs. Alongside this, you will have the chance to be crowned King or Queen of the Runway and be featured as ‘The Face of Butterwick Retail’ in our official 2021 annual magazine.

Entry couldn’t be simpler – Choose your categories, complete the online registration form, pay your entry fee and upload your photographs.

Rival Finalists from each category will be chosen to battle it out in, racing to the finish line to be crowned our Winner. Finalists will be announced on the 30th October 2020.

The Finalists (our Rivals) will go head-to-head to raise awareness and funds for Butterwick Hospice Care – you will have four weeks to get creative! In return finalists will have the chance to win a range of amazing prizes. The King/Queen of ‘The Runway’ will be announced the week commencing 1st December 2020 when all prizes will be distributed to winning finalists.

We can’t wait to be inspired. Let’s have some fun with frocks and get our designer thinking caps on as we revolutionize the runway!
