So on sunday we had our big event #memoriesmatter and it couldn’t have gone any better! After months of planning, organising and making garments the day finally arrived and we loved every minute. The event was held in paradox in heswall which they let us have free of charge and put on a variety of food and drink offers including roast dinners for £5 of cocktails for 2 for £10 they were great. We all arrived at the venue at 10:30am to set up stalls, the catwalk and the beauty departments ready for the public to arrive at 4pm.
The event went on from 4pm till 8pm and was sponsored by the perfume shop as the chosen charity was for alzheimer’s research which they have a big part in. The perfume shop provided all the models aged from 15 to 70 with a fragrance to match their outfit which they had to spray when walking on the catwalk. The catwalk show was on at 5pm then again at 7pm for this who had missed it. The show showcased a range of different collections by our brand Gifts For Me and You including a beach wear collection, an evening collection, a daytime collection and many more which shown off our clothing range Edith M Williams for spring/summer 2016.
The models went down the catwalk to some inspiring tunes such as beyonce who runs the world and dance tracks by calvin harris which got everyone in the mood to party. As well as the catwalk displays the upstairs of the venue seen wirral independent business stalls such as mbellish, squidges cookies, love lotti and many more who sold items for everyone. Also brands like younique makeup and nails by louise were there giving the public tips on makeup products and files and polishes for a small donation to the alzheimer’s charity which was great.
The day went so well and we raised a huge 4000 pounds in just 4 hours for alzheimers research. We also had a huge raffle on the day which seen great prizes won including a holiday to tenerife, a gucci pashmina and a large range of perfume and beauty products which everyone loved and was thrilled to win. The event was such a success we have decided to hold another one in october and we are already excited. Thank you so much to everyone who helped and came to #memoriesmatter we couldn’t of done it without any of you. Here are some pictures from the day:
