Modiste excels at fashionable fundraising

For their 2016 Charity Fashion Show on 20th April, Modiste, the Village Square’s very own contemporary womenswear boutique, travelled across the Square to Turquoise, where the Mediterranean food was a perfect preamble to the Spring/Summer collection on show.

Tickets for this year’s event sold out in record time and 112 local ladies turned up for a night of food, entertainment, fund-raising and, of course, fashion.

Providing the food on such occasions can be a tricky business, but Turquoise created a superb set menu enjoyed by everyone.

Behind the scenes it was the usual state of organised chaos while Modiste’s wonderful models were prepared for the show. Ryan Jake Hair Salon generously provided their expertise making the models look wonderful, while past and present students of the School of Make Up in Stockport supplied the finishing touches.

The whole evening was compered by Pure Radio’s Clare Lancaster and after the show there was entertainment from local singer/songwriter Heidi Dewhirst.

This year’s chosen charity was The Christie and money was raised both through the ticket sales and a raffle on the evening. An amazing number of local businesses donated prizes to the raffle, as well as some of Modiste’s suppliers so there was a good chance of going home with some sort of prize!

All this generosity meant the evening raised a tremendous £1,276 for The Christie, one of the best totals since Modiste started hosting the charity shows.

A fantastic event – well done Modiste!
