Autumn fashion show for traders

A CHARITY fashion show called “Let’s celebrate being a woman” will be held at Goring village

A CHARITY fashion show called “Let’s celebrate being a woman” will be held at Goring village hall on October 27.

At least 20 models from teenagers to pensioners will take to the catwalk in fashions from the Forties to today.

The show is being organised by Gina Bennett, who runs the Ruby Pepper boutique in High Street, Goring, and will showcase the village’s independent businesses.

Staff from the Virgo Beauty salon will share skincare tips and techniques while the team at Albert Fields hairdressers will give a styling demonstration and perform a makeover.

Exercise instructor Nix Ticehurst, who runs training business Nixercise, will discuss fitness and fashion. Other village shops will have stalls.

Refreshments will be provided by Pierreponts café.

The show is in aid of the RAF Benevolent Fund and will be opened by a guest representative of either RAF Benson of RAF High Wycombe.

Mrs Bennett, from South Stoke, said: “With autumn coming up, I just thought it would be nice to offset the dreariness of the new season with something colourful and entertaining.

“It’s also a chance to show why we’re different and superior to your average village and to thank everyone who already supports us on a regular basis. Goring’s retail community is very important and a big part of its attraction to tourists.

“It will be an amazing evening with lots of surprises and a real variety of outfits and music. There will be models aged 18 to 83 with all different body shapes and sizes but we’re going to make everyone look amazing.

“The village hall committee has been unbelievably helpful and I’m sure the show will be a success.”

Tickets cost £35 each. There are 80 tickets for 10 tables of eight women plus 10 more catwalk seats without a table at £30.
