The LLPR girls masqueraded as models for an evening and prrr’d down the catwalk for the Fab Frocks Fashion Show.
The show featured a stunning array of evening, cocktail, mother of the bride and groom outfits and dressy daywear, all modelled by business women from local companies, Debbie J Boyes, Virgin Vie at Home and of course the LLPR ladies. The event was a sell out with over 220 people attending.
Particular thanks go to Steele Raymond Solicitors who sponsored the show, and to the Mayor of Poole, Councillor Mrs Joyce Lavender who took part in a colour analysis by House of Colour. Guests also enjoyed a dancing demonstration from the ‘Still Alive and Still Jiving’ dance group which included 2 Poole Soroptimists.
The most poignant point of the evening were 2 real-life cameos of trafficked women, the issue at the heart of Soroptimist International Poole’s Purple Teardrop Campaign. Fab Frocks’ beautiful Purple Rain collection highlighted the campaign and Soroptimists’ determination to stop human trafficking and support its victims.
We then treated the audience to a very glamorous mama mia style grand finale and the evening closed with a superb raffle with many prizes donated by local companies including BMI Harbour Hospital, Caesar’s Bistro and MopHair Salon whose Nick Norman dressed the models’ hair for the show.
All proceeds from the show are for Project SIerra, the Purple Teardrop Campaign and President Penny’s charities, the Jigsaw Appeal (Blood Cancer and Disorder Appeal, Royal Bournemouth Hospital) and Harbour Challenge (encouraging confidence in local children and teenagers through watersports activities).
