St Albans charity fashion show filmed for BBC3’s Stacey Dooley Investigates
A CHARITY fashion show proved to be a sell-out success with guests queueing around the block to be let in.
It was held to celebrate five years of fashion at The dressing room in High Street, St Albans, and was in conjunction with the BBC3 programme Stacey Dooley Investigates which filmed the event.
All 130 tickets sold out within three hours of going on sale and it got underway with cocktails and a short speech from store owner Deryane Tadd who thanked customers for their support over the last five years.
Models wearing looks from the key trends of the season then sashayed along the catwalk before a raffle was held, with 10 lucky winners taking the prizes which ranged from spa days at beauty salons to jewellery and accessories.
Ten per cent of the sales of clothes on the evening went to NGO, Stacey Dooley’s chosen charity, which works in the Democratic Republic of Congo to help children caught up in conflict.
