Friday 5 December, 2014
7:30 pm - 11:00 pm
No event showcases the skill of the designers, makers and couturiers of St Margaret’s House better than the Fashion Show. All of the garments and creations on the runway were either designed or made in-house and the models are residents or supporters of the building. The wide-ranging vibrancy of our artistic community will become clear in this annual fusion of art and fashion, the line up for which is now available here.
Bespoke Harris Tweed couture is presented alongside an award-winning series of inimitable felt hats, collars and sporrans. Students from the building’s resident charity Upward Mobility unveil handiwork in a showcase also comprising a curated jewellery collection by ten invited artisans. Luxurious accessories made from traditional handmade methods share the runway with futuristic costume designs. Fine felt scarves and collars follow unique, handmade hats and headpieces down the catwalk.
All are warmly invited on the evening of Friday 5 December, to witness these ready-to-wear garments and one-off pieces take centre stage in the impressive art gallery. Site-specific projections and a licensed bar will complete the atmosphere on the night.
Seats can now be booked online. Although seats are unallocated, we advise booking as soon as possible to avoid disappointment, as spaces are limited. Doors open at 6.30pm, for a 7.30pm start.
