Locals Strut for The Shakespeare Hospice!
The generous and gorgeous of Stratford will be strutting down the catwalk at the Stratford Fashion Show on Wednesday 16th March!
Locals will be the stars of this fashion extravaganza at the Arts House as they will model clothes from Stratford retailers in aid of The Shakespeare Hospice, organised by Stratforward.
Tickets are £15 each including a glass of fizz and a Gorgeous Obsession goody bag worth over £30. (This is for just the first 250 tickets sold.) They are on sale now at many of the participating retailers and on line at the Arts House and Hospice.
There will be a fantastic selection of clothes from 18 retailers including local gems such as VH & Co and New Idle, and national retailers such as Debenhams and M&S.
• Customers of Sew Me Something, a haven for sewers and crafters, will be putting a new spin on "models own". They will make clothes following Sew Me Something’s own patterns, and then model them!
• Dramatic and dazzling make-up will be created by Gorgeous Obsession Boutique Salon who will introduce the Gorgeous Tempest cosmetic range with an AMAZING competition – “Find the Face of Stratford 2016”.
• Local brides will model their own stunning bridal gowns, from Stratford wedding boutique, Shakespeare in Love.
The Shakespeare Hospice and Cancer Research will dispel myths about charity retail by taking to the catwalk with stunning clothing donated to their stores. Guests will even have the opportunity to bag a bargain at a designer stall. Which will it be the Gucci handbag or Missoni scarf?! More is planned and will be released soon.
Vikki Calcutt, Head of Income Generation at The Shakespeare Hospice said, “To have an opportunity to showcase the fashion of our town and raise money for our patients is a great one for us. We are really looking forward to the event and hope that people enjoy bidding on our Silent auction which will be filled with designer goodies like Prada handbags and Alexander McQueen purses. Thank you to Stratforward for pulling the evening together and to the businesses taking part for so generously donating their time to support us.”
Talented local makeup artists and hair stylists will come together to style the models in support of this great cause. Hair will be styled by both the highly respected Matthew Curtis, and the recently opened ENV Salon. Make up by Looking Glass Aesthetics and Gorgeous Obsession.
People are encouraged to come early for shopping in the auditorium before the show. It promises to be a night of fashion, fizz and fun!
