Runway ready – Shrewsbury School’s Charity Fashion Show prepares for take-off
Organised entirely by A level students at Shrewsbury School, the 6th gala Charity Fashion Show takes place at the School on Saturday 4th October.
Lead organiser Georgia Bruce, aged 17, is putting into place the final touches to what promises to be a hugely entertaining evening for audience and participants alike.
“We are hoping to raise lots of awareness and money for Brain Tumour UK and Ethiopiad whilst creating a fabulous night of fashion that also helps to support local businesses and boutiques.”
“We’re thrilled with the wonderful response we’ve had from local shops. We’re really looking forward to showing off some gorgeous clothes from the autumn collections at Templeton Jones, Jones, Chequers, EA Jones Vintage. Harry Mundy, an former pupil here is bringing a sample of his collection of Saville Row tailored suits. We are so excited to be able to wear jewellery from Boodles.”
“We’ve also been given some fabulous raffle prizes and we’re extremely grateful to everyone who has donated. In honour of the Fashion Show we are giving a beautiful bouquet to the ‘Best-Dressed Lady’ of the evening”
Georgia has lined up 15 fellow students – boys and girls – to model the outfits. Students will also be providing musical entertainment during the interval, while others will be busy behind the scenes, building the catwalk and controlling the sound and lighting.
Adding an extra glamorous sparkle to the event, Georgia is delighted that the evening will be compered by local PR guru and lover of fashion, Siobhan Connor, Director of Connor PR.
The students of Shrewsbury School hope to raise more than £2,000 for Brain Tumour UK and Ethiopiad. _________________________________________________________________________________

It’s time to say down with cute and up with cool!
With such a fresh and welcomed approach to dressing kids, it’s no wonder Rockabye-Baby has been selected to showcase its clothes at House of Fraser’s POP at HOF – a pop-up at the flagship Oxford Street store. Following a competition organised by The Great Retail Revival Foundation, Rockabye-Baby was one of just ten small businesses selected from nearly 200 of the UK’s hottest new retailers in a sales event offering the winner a year’s concession at the store. Tattinger is sponsoring the event and people who buy any POP at HOF brands get a free glass of champagne!
Rockabye-Baby has a refreshing attitude and a motto to match – don’t give into mainstream cute. Owner and founder, Emma Parkes-McQueen, believes kids should be able to dress as individually as they think – scrap those stereotypes; crush those clichés. This bright and funky range of luxury cotton clothes for children up to the age of eight look fantastic, have a musical theme and are even packed in 10-inch record sleeves.
This great new brand has been given the chance to shout out to a wider audience – so whether the kids like a whiter shade of pale or a slightly purple haze, Rockabye-Baby has something to suit. Head to House of Fraser, Oxford Street, between Monday 12 May and Monday 26 May to get some of the latest fashion must-haves for kids.
