Autumn/Winter 2011 Fashion Show
Having been opened for a mere month, the museum catered for the event exceptionally well, with the catwalk itself being held in the Great Hall of Taunton’s historic castle. The models glided to classical music played by a string quartet, ‘The Vivace Strings’, through a minefield of archaeological finds.
Models of varying shapes and sizes were used to represent equality in fashion. Showing that garments could be worn in different ways dependant on the individuals unique body shape.
The event worked in collaboration with Combers and Le Spa at Combers; premium hair and beauty salon in Taunton. The hair and make-up was done to represent the Autumn/Winter 2011 trends and took into consideration each models colouring and outfit choices.
Combers did a fantastic job preparing the models for the show, the team at Combers was extremely organised and all the models looked amazing in the garments.
200 guests attended the sold out event which also raised £1500 for the worthy charity St Margaret’s Hospice. A big thank-you to all the local brands that supported the event through donations to the ‘Goodie Bags’ and Prize Draw.
Popular garments included the red jersey dress which held it’s own in the finale… where all of the models wore the red dress down the catwalk.
