Spring Summer 2015 Fashion Show Review

On Sunday 22nd March Claire Christian Couture and Windsor & Wales held their Spring Summer 2015 Fashion Show in aid of Wish Upon a Dream.  An astounding £3,500 was raised at the event, which will benefit terminally ill children on the Isle of Man.

The sun was beaming through the glass roof of the Garden Room at the Villa, as male, female and child models walked a beautiful champagne coloured runway, while local singer/songwriter Coral Amphlett sang like an angel accompanied by acoustic guitar played by talented musician Iian Taylor to the delight of the audience.  Champagne, canapés, and luxury afternoon tea served to the guests made a wonderful afternoon.  The first signs of summer were on show,  clothes appeared soft, wistful, easy, comfortable, and romantic.  Simple dresses which would work at any summer function, day or night.  From wide leg silk trousers, through to effortless tailoring, kaftan cover-ups in gliding silks, peplum hem dresses, camisoles and cutesy skirts, boasting blooms and floral prints, sexy in its subtlety.   Teaming up luxury fabrics with Windsor & Wales pastel coloured cashmere jumpers, and tailoring.  Windsor & Wales’ debut collection featured tweed jackets individually cut and made in North London from Laxey Woollen Mill tweeds, Manx Loaghtan shearling coats, luxurious cashmere knitwear hand-linked in the Scottish Borders, expertly tailored shirts made in London from British cloth and leather and tweed footwear handcrafted in Northamptonshire.

The event was supported by many local businesses and volunteers who all exceeded professional excellence.

A very special thank you to all involved, helped make this one of the most successful fashion show’s the island has ever seen.
