Fabulous fashion for fewer funds


William Woodworth

Glamorous evening gowns are gracing the window of a popular Blenheim store in a bid to entice support for a church fundraiser.

In anticipation for this weekend’s “Glamorous Gowns of the 20th Century” display at Nativity Church, the Blue Door have been window dressing to the nines.

The Blue Door’s general manager Bronwen Demmocks says glamour doesn’t have to come at a high cost for any occasion.

“With the event including a thrift section of prizes, we’ve got gowns, formal clothes and shoes for everyone wanting to go along and enjoy the Glamorous Gowns weekend in their own glorious outfit.

“Our window-dresser Vanessa always does a wonderful job, but she’s really topped all expectations with this display.

“It’s also been great to see lots of other charity shops also getting behind this event, and we hope that it’s not only a success for the fundraiser but a weekend to remember for all.”

The three days event, consisting of a Friday night limited ticket rehearsal, the Saturday fashion extravaganza supper and a Sunday public opening, is in support of the Nativity Church’s Hall renovations, and promises to be a unique highlight for local fashion lovers.
