Fashion Show Glitz and Glamour

Always a lover of fashion, prancing about on stage and any excuse to get dressed up for an evening I’m pleased to announce that I will be compering the fashionistas of Sevenoaks for an evening of fashion, fun and fundraising.  It’s open to everyone, so if you’d like to come along all the details are below.  Hope to see you there!

Modelling a thermo-jacket made from household insulation at Ashford’s Eco Fayre.  Weather related fashion – right up my street!  The Sevenoaks event will be much more glamorous, with many wonderful clothes to purchase at the event.  Dangerous, but brilliant!
