Make-up artist and beautician Catherine Batour organised the show alongside Chloe James Lifestyle fashion boutique, which is based in High Street, to raise money for cancer charity ‘Look Good Feel Better’.

The fashion show was held in Cote Restaurant on Thursday, April 19, and featured more than 60 outfits.

Catherine, who has over 25 years’ experience in luxury retail, did the make-up for the models using MAC cosmetics. She also volunteers for the charity at Mount Vernon Hospital in Northwood.

She said: “My job is all about making women feel and look their best. To help ladies going through cancer treatment feel like themselves and help their self-esteem is so touching and rewarding, and I am fortunate to be able to help using my new make-up and beauty skills, having recently changed my career after having children.”

Look Good Feel Better was launched in 1994 to help cancer patients combat the visible side effects of their illness. The fashion show also raised money for ‘Siobhan’s Fight’, in aid of two-year-old Siobhan Mather who is currently undergoing treatment for neuroblastoma. The money raised will contribute to potentially life-saving treatment in the USA.

Chloe James has been holding fashion shows twice a year to showcase the boutique’s collections and raise money for charity.

Tickets for the catwalk show at Cote Restaurant sold out within 48 hours, and the show raised just over £1,500 for the two charities.

Donna Nichol, from Chloe James, said: “These events are a lot of hard work and lots of local people pull together to make them happen.

“We were delighted to have local photographer Stephanie Belton take some fantastic photographs on the night.”

Catherine’s local MAC Cosmetics store in Watford contributed to the goodie bags at the event, along with skincare brand Evolve and Chloe James’s supplier White Leaf Jewellery.

Luisa Stevens from Look Good Feel Better said: “Thank you so much for your support. Every pound raised will make a huge difference and make sure more people can face cancer with confidence.”
