Ar­ran ladies show off their pas­sion for fash­ion

The Arran Banner - - News -

More than 100 of Ar­ran’s fash­ion­able ladies gath­ered on a glo­ri­ous spring evening at Brod­ick Golf Club on Mon­day to see some of the lat­est out­fits that are now avail­able on the is­land.

Or­gan­ised jointly by Chameleon Ladies Boutique in Lam­lash and the Old Byre Show­room in Machrie and Brod­ick, Pas­sion for Fash­ion fea­tured this sum­mer’s on-trend styles. Pro­ceeds from the event were do­nated to the Com­mu­nity of Ar­ran Seabed Trust (COAST) to help its con­tin­ued ma­rine con­ser­va­tion efforts around Ar­ran and beyond.

Lorna Gu­naydi, owner at Old Byre, and Lynn Walker, of Chameleon, gave commentary as a se­ries of vol­un­teer mod­els, in­clud­ing a sur­prise male model from the Old Byre, strut­ted the stage with this sum­mer’s must-have fash­ions, ac­com­pa­nied by a rous­ing sound­track of cheesy 1980s disco and dance-floor favourites.

At the in­ter­val, Jenny Stark of COAST ran a light-hearted quiz that demon­strated the au­di­ence’s knowl­edge – or lack of – of var­i­ous flora and fauna on our lo­cal seabed.

Lynn said: ‘We wanted to show­case to the ladies of Ar­ran a va­ri­ety of stylish fash­ions, to suit all oc­ca­sions from for­mal to ca­sual. All avail­able on the is­land with­out the time and ef­fort of trav­el­ling up to Glas­gow or the hassle of or­der­ing on­line. It’s great to be able to do that while sup­port­ing such a worth­while cause as COAST.

‘Ev­ery­one seemed to en­joy the evening and there were some lucky prize draw win­ners dur­ing the show. Thanks to all who at­tended and es­pe­cially to Brod­ick Golf Club for be­ing such ex­cel­lent hosts.’
