Much anticipated fashion show returns to Henley
This September will see the return of the much anticipated Henley-in-Arden Fashion Show to raise funds to pay for essential conservation and improvements to the town’s magnificent Guild Hall.
Those with a love for fashion are being encouraged to register their interest in this must-see show, which takes place on 27th September from 7pm.
Now in its second year, the event will be held in the impressive Atrium of Warwickshire College and is being sponsored by Taylor Wimpey (builders of the Farriers Cross new homes development in Henley-in-Arden), Salon ENV, The Henley Society and David Morphew Photography.
The show will feature this season's new designs from some of Henley's best-loved boutiques, namely Honeys Boutique, Pamela's Boutique, Patinis, Shirlee, Studio 34 and Tessa Francis Bridal Studio. In addition, fashion students from Warwickshire College will also showcase their collections on the catwalk.
The event will be compered by BBC Radio 4’s Lucy Lunt and is being co-ordinated by renowned model Fiona Kidd with four professional models taking to the catwalk to show off some of the hottest fashion trends for Autumn/Winter 2012.
Last year’s audience were amazed by the spectacular and professional staging, with one boutique owner remarking that the show made the largest contribution to Henley retailers in living memory.
Dawn Leech, Chairman of the organising committee, said: “Last year was a resounding success, helping us to raise vital funds for the listed building. Our aim is to build upon this success in promoting what Henley-in-Arden has to offer.
“In addition to all of Henley’s excellent boutiques, we will be showcasing the work of the fashion students of Warwickshire College – Henley Centre. We hope this will inspire the students and set them on the road to a successful career in fashion.”
On the night there will be a cash bar and refreshments which are available from 7pm, while the main show starts at 7.30pm. In addition there will be a raffle with outstanding prizes from the Henley boutiques.
