FASHIONISTAS gathered for a stylish recycling event which raised hundreds of pounds for charity.
More than 100 women attended The Big Frock Swap event at Boughton Hall Cricket Club which gave them the opportunity to exchange unwanted dresses, skirts, trousers and coats – rather than throw them away.
During the evening there was a hairdressing demonstration by Maria Hill, a lecturer in hairdressing at West Cheshire College.
And sixth-form students Emma Dennis, Laura Jackson, Emily Lightfoot, Anita McLoughlin and Natasha Egan from the Bishops High School and Lottie Nightingale from Queen’s Park High staged a catwalk show wearing clothes which members of the audience had brought to swap.
Professional make-up artist Kate Cheshire gave make-up tips and Trish Pugh of Felicity Hat Hire was on hand to offer advice on this season’s latest styles in headwear.
Also at the event were diet expert Sarah Broady of Herbalife and Thelma and Trevor Roberts from Thelma’s Cakes.
The raffle included a top prize of a £100 voucher from Victoria Tetley of VJT Photography, hairdressing vouchers from Salon Essentials Toni and Guy and hair products donated by David at Regis in Chester’s Grosvenor Shopping Centre. The dress rails were kindly loaned by Marks & Spencer.
The event raised almost £1,000, which was divided between Nomads AFC and Breast Cancer Campaign.
