Originally conceived as a monthly market, last Wednesday night marked the first formal fashion show for the group.
Sportsgirl gift bags lined up prior to the show
The night was organised as a charity event, with all proceeds going to the Ardoch Youth Foundation. The Ardoch Youth Foundation works to support children and young people so that they can receive an education - something that many of us take for granted. You can apply as a volunteer here.
The designers who showed their collections are already starting to turn heads in the local fashion scene. The lineup consisted of Lilyhart, Melia by Night, Tobey, Borsha, Modernist, Harvest Powell, My Sister Pat, I Heard They Eat Cigarettes, and Future Romance.
The evening was great fun, despite the appalling weather (the heavy rain caused the roof in the ladies' bathroom to virtually collapse!) We bumped into Cheryl from Business Chic before the show started, and she sat down and made us one of her handcrafted business cards on the spot. Such dedication!
With my official media pass I was able to get some good snaps of each collection, which I'll post separately.
