Put a spring in your step with next season's trends
21 February 2012
Aberdonians with a passion for fashion can sneak a peek of
spring's key trends at an exclusive charity fashion show at the
city's chic Carmelite Hotel.
The fashion show is being held to raise money for children's
charity, Action for Children Scotland. Leading retailer John Lewis
is sponsoring the event, assisted by Toni & Guy hairdressing
and Yves Saint Laurent cosmetics. Local favourite Gavin Gourlay
will host the evening, whilst Aberdeen-based firm, AVC Media
Enterprises Ltd, is supplying the catwalk and managing the lighting
and sound to ensure that fashionistas in Aberdeen will experience a
night to remember.
Hilary Canto, from Action for Children Scotland's fundraising
team, said: "Staff from John Lewis Aberdeen are back to reveal the
department store's new designer brand collections for spring. Our
autumn/winter show was a huge success, raising £3,500 to help
Scotland's most vulnerable children, young people and their
families. This spring we are very pleased to be able to bring
Aberdeen's trend-setters another sneak peek of the season's
fashions - and we hope to raise even more vital funds to support
The event is being held at Carmelite, in Aberdeen's Merchant
Quarter, on 4 April 2012. Guests will be treated to a pre-show
buffet at the hotel, and will have the chance to win fabulous
prizes in an exclusive raffle - including a portrait session with
expert photographer Robert Kerr at IMS Photos; and a pamper day for
two at John Lewis.
Pam Calder, Leisure and Corporate Social Responsibility
Coordinator for John Lewis Aberdeen, said: "This is a fantastic
opportunity to support Action for Children Scotland, preview our
spring collection, and enjoy a fabulous night out at Carmelite.
Seats for the event have been selling fast so I would urge anyone
who would like to attend to reserve their place as soon as possible
to avoid losing out in the style stakes!"
Graeme McGuire, Operations Manager at AVC Media Enterprises,
added: "We are very pleased to assist the fashion show, which will
help Action for Children Scotland to continue to support Scotland's
most vulnerable children and young people to fulfill their
potential, and make the most of their lives."
