For 2017, residents of Penarth can look forward to a spectacular fashion week planned for October of this year. Over six days (9th – 14th October 2017) many venues local to Penarth will be hosting fashion and beauty related events, all to raise funds for the Royal National Lifeboat Institution’s Penarth station.

Every angle will be covered, with opportunities to join events in Penarth’s fashion retailers, beauty product shops, hairdressers, jewellery and accessories, shoe retailers, many offering special event evenings, social soirées, receptions and of course opportunities to dress up and get the bling on!

Plans are already in hand for a unique fashion show at Penarth lifeboat station to mark the end of the fashion week. With professional staging, a fashion runway, lighting and choreography the station will be transformed, we will be hiding all (well, almost all!) of our yellow wellies and crew members will mix with models to present a fashion show the likes of which Penarth has not seen before.

Normally a scene of frantic activity during a launch, the crew room will become a different type of changing room and the boat house itself will instead of accommodating our lifeboats be transformed to our very own fashion venue. Whilst the focus will be on high fashion and modern haute couture, we’ll make sure that the famous yellow wellies will make an appearance – who knows, we may start a trend.

Afterwards, there will be an after show party at Penarth Yacht Club. With raffles and auction prizes already being donated, (but we would always welcome more!) there is ample opportunity to participate in the fundraising event.

The events are being coordinated through RNLI Fundraising lead Caroline Eva.

“This is a really great and unique opportunity to help support the crew of the lifeboat station. We are so grateful for the sponsors and participants helping to support our fashion week. Our crews rely on the very best equipment, as they place themselves at risk in order to save lives at sea. By supporting fashion week much-needed funds can be targeted to ensure the crews at Penarth have the most
up to date, effect, and safe personal protective equipment. The RNLI fashion week will add something different
to our fundraising calendar, and something that we hope to build on each year in the future”.

We would like to encourage local business to help support the events – please email carolineeva@ hotmail.co.uk for more information and details of how to help. There will be fashion shows from the town’s popular boutiques The Queen B and Gingers.

We will not be leaving the men out – the town’s very own Nathan Palmer is working on an event as well.
