Charity fashion evening for Peterborough Business Women

Business | Press | News

The Peterborough Business Fundraising Group is organising a charity Fashion Evening on the evening of Thursday 2nd October 2008 in conjunction with John Lewis, Queensgate.

The event aims to raise money for the children’s charity Barnardo’s and give professional women inspiring ideas on how to put together a working wardrobe from this year’s winter collections.

Peterborough Fundraising Committee member and chief organiser, Barbara Spiller, from N.B. Marketing Ltd told us: "This will be a very popular event with professional women in the area. We are particularly delighted that Susan Bull, fashion stylist and advisor to the John Lewis Partnership, will be presenting the show and giving her expert advice on outfit combinations that create the right impression in the workplace or at corporate social events, such as the office Christmas party.

 "We will also have representatives from some of the leading Beauty houses advising on make-up, perfumes and accessories and no doubt there will be some special offers to take advantage of."

The organisers are delighted that the event is being supported by award-winning international fashion designer, Gurvinder Singh, who hails from Peterborough. Guests will have the chance to win a unique, one-off tailor-made dress designed by Gurvinder Singh who will attend the charity auction on the night.

Commenting on the event, Fashion Designer and Barnardo’s Vice President Bruce Oldfield said: ‘Having a good working wardrobe is so important for any professional woman and this evening sounds like the ideal opportunity to pick up some great advice and ideas. Anything which inspires creativity and also raises money and awareness for the work Barnardo’s does is wonderful.’

John Lewis will keep their fashion floor open until 8.45pm so that those attending can make the most of the ideas they’ve been given and enjoy an exclusive out-of-hours shopping experience.

The evening includes drinks, buffet, fashion show and beauty treatments.

Admission is by ticket only, priced at £30 per person. All proceeds will be donated to Barnardo’s.
