My friend Audrie Reed organised the most fantastic fashion show which took place last week. It was for the Cambridge based charity Village Outreach Society to create fundraising to provide a health and vaccine programme to an indigenous tribe in Tamil Nadu, S. India. These families survive by scavenging anything they can recycle and sell from the city dump.
Anglia Ruskin University 2nd year design students created new fashions from recycled clothing and their outfits were auctioned off. There were also some great exhibits, including dresses made from plastic bags and tea-bags and a map of the world created out of rubbish from different countries. The event was also held in conjunction with Cambridge University Festival of Ideas.
My sisters, my daughter and I did the makeup for the models and we had great fun going a bit wild with over-the-top cat walk makeup, I can’t wait to see the pictures, as soon as get some through I’ll post them on here
Well done to Audrie for organising such a fantastic event.
