26/04/12...Fashion show triumph for Thame CAB -
IT was all about style, glamour and the shades of jewels at a fashion show in Thame this week, in support of the valuable work of the town's Citizens Advice Bureau.
The organisers, The Friends of Thame and District CAB, have hailed the show a tremendous success.
"The town and its businesses rallied round and they were very generous", said Janet Styles, a trustee of the voluntary organisation, "and we would like to thank everyone in the town who supported us in this enterprise." A final figure for the sum raised has yet to be calculated but Mrs Styles estimated that it would be at least £1400.
The Spread Eagle provided the Eden Suite as the venue for the packed show, which was attended by 130 people.
The local business who took part in the show on Thursday (19/04), were:
Country Casuals /Viyella
The Boutique at Salon 7 - Haddenham
Katy Dyer - Colour Me Beautiful
In a commentary on the Show, Katy Dyer, of Colour Me beautiful said: "CC/Viyella showcased the seasons must-have summer stripes with great accessories and a hint of the oh-so-patriotic red, white and blue which is set to be a hit in the coming months. Occasionwear with subtle shades and brights with print, perfect for a summer’s afternoon.
"Flowing fabrics and soft summer colour were superb companions at Freerange with accents of coral and aqua both great for early summer looks. Abstract print featuring this season’s celebration of nature and again the key trend of red, white and blue.
