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”
