Fash­ion show a fun af­ter­noon at Ocean Sports

Coastal News - - News -

En­joy­ing a show­case of the lat­est in fash­ion and wel­com­ing in the sum­mer with a fun af­ter­noon among friends are just two of the rea­sons to get along to a fash­ion show fea­tur­ing lo­cal faces in Whanga­mata this week­end.

Be­ing hosted by Whanga­mata Ocean Sports Fish­ing Club on Sun­day af­ter­noon, the show is a hit with lo­cal women and has raised more than $5000 for the Whanga­mata Com­mu­nity Ser­vices Trust over the years.

“It’s a great Sun­day af­ter­noon, we’re ex­pect­ing 100 women,” says or­gan­iser Diana Fay. “As well as the fash­ion show, which fea­tures lo­cal re­tail­ers Mer­rell, Tango shoes, Anna S, Mainly Ca­sual, Bet­tie Mun­roe, Salt­wa­ter Surf and Beach Ba­bies, there’ll be stalls and spot prizes, free wine tast­ing and raf­fles.

“Some of the re­tail­ers have had a tough win­ter so this is an op­por­tu­nity to wel­come in the sum­mer, and have a bit of fun.”

The show is in its fourth year and Diana has been or­gan­is­ing it for the past two. She says it is never dif­fi­cult to find models and the women of the cat­walk range in shape, size and age.

“They’re not stereo­typed, and most of them are first­time models.”

Re­tail­ers have pro­vided sev­eral out­fits each and there will be plenty of quick changes be­hind the scenes for the models mak­ing their de­but on the stage. Re­hearsals have taken place though, and they are all will­ing and ready.

Tick­ets are $20 and avail­able from the Whanga­mata Ocean Sports Club. The show runs from 3pm to 5pm and en­try in­cludes a glass of bub­bles, food nib­bles and en­try to the draw for a do­nated ham­per from New World Whanga­mata.
