I was at a Fashion Show on Friday night at Emmanuel Church in Didsbury in aid of the Vine Project. VINE is a unique venture aimed to create a fund to support vulnerable children in a township in KwaZulu Natal who have lost their parents through AIDS. This is now the leading cause of death in South Africa. Please take a look at this amazing charity and the work they do.

It was a fantastic night full of atmosphere and fun!

I had the pleasure to meet these two amazing ladies who were dressed in a riot of bright colours! They were so full of life and “joie de vivre” – just look at those beaming smiles! They really knew how to make an impact with colour. Dressing in colourful clothing really can bring us into a more positive mood and these ladies are living proof of that. I loved them! I did jot down their names, some bits and bobs about their fashion inspirations and their combined age 🙂

Unfortunately, I appear to have lost my note pad, so, lovely ladies, if you are reading this please contact me again with this information and I will be happy to include it!


Rose has kindly got in touch with the following info – thanks Rose!

I am Rose Snow. The outfit I was wearing was a remade skirt form Biba in the early 70’s. It was originally flared. The jacket was EAST, padded and embroidered silk bought from an Oxfam shop for £30. I am inspired by BEAUTY and love colours, comfort and individuality in fashion. I have always loved fashion from being a little girl. My favourite playthings were cardboard cut out dolls with cut out clothes. Fay said she loved these playthings too. My friends name is Fay Barratt. She is a painter, I am a poet. I have copied Fay in to this email. Our combined age is 129 – work that out”

    KEEP IT SUNNY SIDE UP THIS HOLIDAY SEASON Well, the weather certainly isn’t sunny in Manchester right now but if you can’t have the sunshine, you can BE the sunshine! Yellow, the colour associated with all things happy and bright, is often viewed as a ‘tricky’ shade to wear. It is certainly true that yellow... […]
