AS YOU all noticed in last week’s article local fashion designer and stylist Lisa McCabe has been working very hard towards achieving her target of £2000 for local breast cancer charity Pretty in Pink and since last week she is now only 20 percent off her goal mark.
The vintage fashion show held last Thursday night in Charlie’s Bar raised a fantastic £435 through ticket sales and a raffle which was held on the night. The show itself saw the unveiling of local vintage boutique Allis Vintage’s Spring Summer 2014 collection. The clothes were modelled beautifully by local girls Donna McCabe, Leah Phillips, Sarah Jayne Makhlouf, Seana O’Connor, Bethany Blair, Keri Burns, Laura Cathy McCusker, Cliodna Reihill and Donna McCartin.
The show had a very relaxed vibe with an acoustic set by local musician Gareth Jones of Captain Casey. The music and setting really suited the clothes and the atmosphere was very chilled, which I’m sure helped to calm the nerves of the models.
Lisa is still running her online auction through Facebook, which is really helping to bring in the extra funds and a further fashion show will be held on 11th February in Jazzey’s Enniskillen.
Lisa would like to thank everyone involved in making the show such a success and in particular the kind businesses who donated prizes for the raffle such as Jenny’s Café, Riverside Meats, Café Merlot, Body and Soul, Irene’s House of Beauty, Leanna Martin, Lough Erne Cakes and Hair by Maeve. She would also like to thank the hair and makeup team Kim Burleigh and Claire Mullen all the models and everyone who came along to support the event and donated to Pretty in Pink.
