A date for your diary ! 6th May, Cornubia Hall, Par.
We are having a fashion show like no other and you need to be here!
On Sunday 6th May TEX- Textiles with a difference and KBSK Performing Arts will be coming together for TEX Fashionista. Come and join the fashion revolution for an event of fabulous fashion, entertainment and a chance to shop the latest styles and trends.
The fashion show idea was created after KBSK Performing Arts came to TEX looking for ways to gain more experience in public performance and they suggested that a fashion show would be a great way to do this as this will give them the opportunities they are looking for.
Though this is a free event we ask that you please give generously as all proceeds on the day will go to supporting KBSK Performing Arts in their bid to hire a bus to take their students for a theatre experience. You can also donate through TEX’s Crowdfunding campaign where proceeds will go to providing more workshops in the local community and expanding upon our existing community work.
Over the last few months we have started to work with some fantastic companies and community groups and our fashion show is a combination of this effort.
Working with great companies like SeaSalt- the clothing company, and with other industry and community donations of fabrics, we have help to divert over 1 ton of textiles from landfill by creating fantastic products and fashion that we will be showing off in a day of wonder and wow.
The fashion show idea was created after a local youth dance group, KBSK, came to us looking for ways to gain more experience in public performance and they suggested that a fashion show would be a great way to do this as this will give them the opportunities they are looking for.
For our part we are looking to raise funds to run workshops where we will be able to teach people of all ages and abilities to sew and make their own products or accessories. So far we have had great demand for the workshops and especially on the popular Dignity Bags workshops of which we would like to expand on. The money raised will be used to provide the extra equipment and staffing to do this.
