Fash­ion for char­ity

Fundraiser a per­fect fit for lo­cal women

Central Queensland News - - LIFE - Louise Shan­non Louise.Shan­non@newsre­gional media.com.au

A FUNDRAIS­ING fash­ion pa­rade, fea­tur­ing well-known la­bel That’s Me, will show­case its lat­est looks to­mor­row while also giv­ing women the chance to re­ceive per­sonal style ad­vice from the la­bel’s de­signer, Margo Mott.

The event, to be held from 2pm at the Mara­boon Tav­ern, has been or­gan­ised by the Emer­ald Ladies Wel­fare As­so­ci­a­tion to raise money for a range of lo­cal char­i­ties.

ELWA pres­i­dent Robyn Bai­ley said af­ter­noon tea would be pro­vided and Ms Mott would talk about her fash­ion la­bel and give in­di­vid­ual fash­ion tips.

Ms Bai­ley said the as­so­ci­a­tion had been part of the community for 35 years and Ms Mott had been a fre­quent vis­i­tor to the area es­pe­cially dur­ing the or­gan­i­sa­tion’s early days.

“Margo has ex­ten­sive ex­pe­ri­ence in the fash­ion world,” Ms Bai­ley said. “She’s been in fash­ion and mod­el­ling all her life, and she used to have a model agency and she would bring some of the mod­els out here and do a fash­ion pa­rade.

“Now she has her own la­bel and does the mod­el­ling her­self.

“Peo­ple will be able to get fash­ion ad­vice for them­selves.

“It’s a per­sonal touch and I think it will be great fun.”

Ms Bai­ley said lo­cal char­i­ties were en­cour­aged to keep in touch with the as­so­ci­a­tion so funds raised could be dis­trib­uted where it was needed.

Past re­cip­i­ents have in­cluded Cen­tacare, the Royal Fly­ing Doc­tor Ser­vice, Yumba Bimbi and a lo­cal chil­dren’s dance group.

Ms Mott’s range of clothes is made from Ital­ian fab­ric with no but­tons or zip­pers, no iron­ing is needed and five clas­sic colours are used – red, black, white, navy and mocha.

Ms Mott said she would spend three days in the re­gion and would be avail­able for pri­vate fit­tings, each about 20 min­utes.

“It’s all about the fit,” she said.

“Ev­ery woman has a dif­fer­ent body.

“I de­sign for women’s in­di­vid­ual body shapes.”

Ms Mott’s cloth­ing is made in her Gold Coast Car­rara fac­tory.

Tick­ets for to­mor­row’s fash­ion show are avail­able from Maguire’s Real Es­tate, shop 3/97 Eger­ton St, Emer­ald, and cost $25 per per­son.

ELWA meets on the first Wed­nes­day of ev­ery month at the Mara­boon Tav­ern.

Next meet­ing is Novem­ber 1.

New mem­bers wel­come.

It’s all about the fit. Ev­ery woman has a dif­fer­ent body. I de­sign for women’s in­di­vid­ual body shapes.
