Charity Fashion Show ‘Fashion-it’ at Sugar Club

Hey all,

What with the blogger bash and all sorts of other goings on, last week was a busy one. Not least a charity fashion show / design competition organised by 3M in aid of Laura Lynn House. Entrants to the competition had to design an outfit using only 3M products. That includes things like, post-it notes, bandages and sticky-back plastic. (Yes, all very Blue Peter). So Alice Merlics of White Rabbit costumer Isabelle Phipps, put their creative heads together and came up with this, incredible neon-pink design.

I was lucky enough to be asked to wear it… Now before you start thinking, “Oh get her, she takes a few snaps in some second-hand rags, puts them on her blog and now she thinks she’s a model”. I don’t…it’s for charidee people, you just gotta. It was an incredible turn out and just a bit (read totally and utterly) nerve-racking, after all a dress made from sticky-back plastic does not allow for much movement. I had visions of me rolling down the steps of the sugar club and landing in twisted / ripped heap on the stage. (Legs a-kimbo of course), thankfully the charity gods were smiling on me that evening and I made it to the stage and back (twice), sans humiliation.

Here’s a few back-stage snaps… Hair

Make-up…

With Alice Merlics…

The judging panel was made up of fashion designer/ antiques dealer, Michael Mortell – may I just say, that sounds like the perfect ‘slash’ career, way more glamorous than actress-slash-model, right? – Jane Baker from Fran & Jane, fundraiser Pauline Melia and 3M, G.M. Paul Knowles. They chose this incredibly intricate, delicate-looking dress, made nearly entirely from bandages; a worthy and very popular winner.
