The Plaza La Nogalera in Torremolinos will be transformed into a gigantic catwalk this weekend, when the town celebrates the spring edition of the Torremolinos Fashion Weekend (TFW).

In order to support the local fashion industry, the TFW will highlight the collections of young up and coming fashion designers whose beach and summer wear can be purchased in Torremolinos.

More than 30 local designers will exhibit their new spring and summer designs at the show, which last year attracted more than 3,500 spectators. The models will be presenting new trends in beachwear, including bikinis, swimming trunks, sunglasses and accessories.

The show will begin at 8pm on Friday (today), when the catwalk will be taken over by more than a dozen female models wearing some of this year's most striking summer designs.

The fun continues at midday on Saturday 5 May with the children's fashion parade, while at 6pm, visitors will enjoy the TFW Top Model Contest, when 24 models will compete to be crowned this year's champion models.

The fashion show will continue at 8pm with a parade of male and female models who will share the limelight, displaying new collections of summer sports wear and accessories. The event will finish with a grand final gala, during which the winners of the Top Model Competition will be announced.
