Last month saw Trinity Park host The Suffolk Fashion Show 2018 – now in its 6th year. The show is an annual fashion event that aims at promoting Autumn/Winter seasonal clothes to “real” men and women.
The 2018 Show supported the charity ‘Lighthouse Women’s Aid’, which helps domestic abuse victims.
The Show was presented by ‘Fashion Candy Style’ owner Pamela Davis. She narrated the show as models walked the walk, describing the clothing items and context behind the local designs. Each brand accommodated different body types with ease and style. The models’ body types ranged from petite to plus sizes and the clothes they wore sculpted their bodies seamlessly, to complement their natural shapes.
The collection of clothes were supplied by Quiz, Moss Bros, Cake & Catwalk, Francesca. R. Palumbo, Urban Vintage, Apples & Pears clothing, Absolutely Natural Clothing, Twist ‘N’ Shout, Charlies Pop-up Boutique, Blue Poppy Boutique, Zest and Truffle.
Pamela graciously thanked each designer personally and then moved on to the ideologies behind each collection before the models strutted down the catwalk. Music added to the atmosphere, creating a platform for the models to ‘bounce’ off. They walked in a well-rehearsed style, where two or three models would walk together to the centre of the stage, then weave in and out, switching places so every audience member saw a 360 degree view of the model, perfectly poised and posed. Lights dazzled in the foreground, as cheers echoed as models swooped past, swishing their hips in an elegant sophisticated walk; audience members gushing at the new designs, in awe of the textures and patterns of the clothing & material.
The Show drew to a close with the audience applauding and cheering. The night was a great success and most importantly, raised significant funds for Lighthouse Women’s Aid.
