THE hottest looks from Spring Summer 2016 were on parade along with the fashionistas at The Thistles shopping centre in Stirling last night.
The centre held its Fashion In The Spotlight event to give shoppers the lowdown on this year's must have purchases and fashions from Burtons, Claire’s, Clarks,  Debenhams, Dorothy Perkins, Fat Face, H&M
Jack & Jones, Marks & Spencer, Next , Oasis, Primark , Quiz, River Island and Schuh were all on display.
 The models (some were really cute ;) rocked and the ever stylish Susie Cormack Bruce of i-on magazine hosted the colourful show while Scots supermodel Eunice Olumide spun the tunes.
 Even one of Macbeth the movie's witches aka Kayla Fallon took to the stage. She's the most statuesque witchy woman we've seen - and clever too - studying a physics PHD in between her thespian and modelling pursuits.
Clotheswise, there was something to fit all budgets, and all tastes and it certainly gave us a few ideas for our spring summer wardrobe (we just need to get rid of the old stuff we're hoarding)
Personal Shoppers and Stylists from Marks & Spencer, Boots No7 and Debenhams shared their expert insights live on stage whilst cocktails, chocolates, dough balls, and other treats (yum, hic) were served up around the centre.  
Exclusive discounts, gifts with purchases, and free treats were dished out to everyone including us, while talent scouts from Scotland’s Model Team, sought out some stars of the future.
Unfortunately the wasn't quite tall enough (that's our excuse and we're sticking to was either that or too many doughballs)
The award winning Rainbow Room International team along with The Academy of Makeup –  who came fresh to the show from the international London, Paris and Milan Fashion Weeks offered complimentary makeovers as well as sharing their insider behind-the-scenes insights from fashion’s front line and Central FM put on some extra live activities.
The Showbiz Lion was there as a guest of Vine PR who ran the event and we decided to live stream the show and add our own fun interactive commentary while one lucky winner on the night received a £250 voucher for The Thistles,Boots No7 full makeover with luxury gift bag containing the new season’s must-have beauty and  a Beauty Box file and polish.
By the end of the night shoppers felt pampered and entertained and the models, were on a high. So were we, but that might have been the cocktails.
