Vauxhall Corsa ‘stages’ London Fashion Week

Vauxhall built the 20 metre long catwalk to celebrate its support of young UK fashion designers at London Fashion Week.

Wendy Towler from Vauxhall Motors commented: “What better way to highlight our long-running commitment to emerging British fashion than by creating the world’s first carwalk and giving young designers a unique platform to showcase their talents.”

The catwalk was resting on the roofs of three Vauxhall Corsa models for a three hour show, which doubled as a launch for the new-look Corsa and a range of new colour schemes and extra options.

The Corsa boasts a new front end, updated trim levels to include better quality and more equipment and new body colours.

The new style matches that of other new Vauxhall cars such as the updated Astra, new Insignia and Meriva compact MPV.

The five new colours introduced to the range include Lime Green pearlescent, Chilli Orange metallic, Guacamole, Sunny Melon and Pepperdust metallic.

Under the bonnet, the Vauxhall Corsa benefits from a range of petrol and diesel engines, including the car maker’s ultra-low CO2 ecoFLEX diesel range, which is offered with every model in the Vauxhall line up.

The Corsa, Vauxhall’s second most popular model after the larger Astra hatchback, is available from £9,995 and is available to buy now.

Vauxhall currently runs the ‘Vauxhall Fashion Scout’ programme for young designers in the UK. Previous designers involved with the scheme include William Tempest, Prophetik and Bodyamr – designers who have dressed Cheryl Cole, Emma Watson and Daisy Lowe respectively.
