A FUNDRAISING fashion show has the theme of 'Island Living'.

The Beach Hut Seafood Bar and Kitchen in Bembridge is to host a tea party with fashion show for Dementia UK Admiral Nurses (IW) Appeal.

The fashion show will take place between 4pm and 6pm on Saturday, June 11.

Island retailers have generously donated fashion pieces for the five models to wear, which will then be auctioned on the day.

Those donating outfits are Bayliss and Booth, MIA, The Old Smithy, Visual Impact, Sugar and Spice, Bellissima, My Funky Bags, Rapanui, Mint and Wight and Marks and Spencer.

Each outfit will be accessorised with items donated to WOW/Wight Dash, which will benefit from the sales.

Compere will be personal stylist Nicola Dyke, founder of All About the Outfit, who will talk about the featured garments, the retailers and give styling tips. There will also be a rail of preloved clothes available for purchase.

The fashion show is being masterminded by Alison Child and Dee Becker.

Sally, Lady Grylls, of Dementia UK Admiral Nurses IW, said: "Numbers are limited, so please apply for your tickets early to avoid disappointment. Come and join us with friends to enjoy fellowship and fun and elegance on the seafront.”
