Insurance Institute of Manchester presents Style in The City
The prominent ‘Style in the City’ fashion show was back for the eighth time on 22 June, and it did not disappoint.
The committee of volunteers organising the event went above and beyond to give 330 guests a ‘Party in the Paddock’ themed afternoon of fun, fashion and food at the Midland Hotel.
The fashion show was filled with fabulous clothing from Fizz Fashions and Slaters. The event was choreographed by Jill Politt, who put a number of our local insurance professionals on stage to model – definitely one of the highlights of the day.
Thanks to Victoria Myers, Carter Mitchell, Audrey Henshaw, Barry Thompson, Sarah Rostron, Adam Broster, Helen Hewitt and Mark Farrant.
Almost £3,000 was raised on the day from generous donations for the president’s chosen charity, Smart Works. The Greater Manchester-based charity provides high-quality interview clothing, styling advice and interview training to women in need.

In February, the CII alongside Lloyd’s, Swiss Re, Willis Towers Watson, AIG, LMG, Link, Aon, XL Catlin, Aviva and Swiss Re, attended the Student Pride event at the University of Westminster.
The CII is encouraging firms in the insurance and financial advice sectors to start disclosing their gender pay information ahead of next April’s deadline, regardless of whether or not they are required to.
