Staff from a Shrewsbury fashion store will take to the catwalk this month to help raise money for a worthy cause.
Monsoon, in the town’s busy Darwin Centre, will showcase their glamorous Autumn/Winter collection at a special event at Castle Street hair salon Toni and Guy on Thursday, October 27.
The glittering occasion is being held to raise money for Breast Cancer Awareness and Monsoon assistant manager Carolyn Codd said: “It’s such a good cause and one that affects so many people that we were delighted to help.
“Breast cancer is important to everyone and everyone knows someone who has been affected in some way by it, either directly or through a relative or friend and events like this help raise awareness of the disease.
“I think people will also enjoy our Autumn/Winter collection which is really outstanding with vibrant colours and lovely fabrics.
“We will be showcasing daywear and evening wear and outfits for casual and for special occasions.”
The Monsoon show will be part of what promises to be a special evening with hair products specialists ghd there to give styling advice and tips as well as donating £10 for every pink orchid limited edition styler sold and William A Lewis bringing their latest range of eco-friendly cars.
Jules Condi from makeup specialists Twisted Fairytales will also be on hand and there will be a raffle and goody bags too and a special 20 per cent discount at The Lion and Pheasant.
Gavin Pulham, of Toni and Guy in Shrewsbury, said: “The event will run from 5.30pm to 8.30pm and as well as the fashion show we will be offering a lot more.
“There will be champagne cocktails and mini makeovers and consultations and we actually also have a trained member of staff to help advise people who have had treatment for cancer.”
