When I joined St Peter's Church in Shipley, quite a few years ago now, I had not expected the upturn in my social life that quickly followed! There's always something going on: regular meetings of all sorts (including the Photography Group that I belong to) and numerous one-off events. One of my friends recently offered to get me a ticket for a charity fund-raising evening.... another Vintage Fashion Show. The next thing I knew, I had been persuaded into being a model for the event. (They obviously needed some vintage models to go with the clothes....)
Last night was a 'trying-on' session - rather fun, sorting through piles of clothes to see what would fit and look 'cat-walk appropriate'. I have ended up with five different outfits, so I will have to manage some quick changes. I have to say that vintage is not something I generally buy (apart from the items I own that have become vintage!) but it is interesting trying shapes and colours you perhaps wouldn't normally be drawn to. All I need to do now is practise that model walk!
The show is this Saturday 15 October at 7pm and it's in a good cause, raising funds for The Zephaniah Trust, a local Christian organisation working with children, mainly within Bradford's schools, using creative means to communicate the love of God in simple but effective ways.
