A CHARITY fashion show has raised more than £2,700 after local businesses rallied round to offer their support.
Owner of Anon Lingerie in Elland, Rebecca Sedgewick, got businesses on board to sell tickets, donate prizes, and dress the models for the fashion extravangza.
Many of her customers took to the catwalk to model clothes and underwear from Elland shops including items from Anon Lingerie, Thrifty Frocks, Misdress, Flair, Glitz Boutique, Sage & Onion, Always & Forever and Kitty Couture Hats.
As guests arrived at Berties in Elland they looked around the display of bras designed by students from Brooksbank School.
Lippylicious Tea Room had donated an Elland’s In Fashion 2011 cake and students from the Karen Binns Stage School and James and Lisa from Get Wed compered the event.
Many of the models had their own reasons for taking to the catwalk and Rebecca was thrilled with the results.
“I’m so pleased and proud of everyone for supporting my event and Overgate hospice. Bring on next year, possibly,” said the 21-year-old organiser.
