Fashion has the ability to make us feel truly amazing about ourselves, doesn’t it? And an elegant high tea can also make you feel pretty fab too, right? Well what if you could have all of that, plus, the absolutely incredible feeling of knowing you are helping change the lives of disadvantaged and neglected children right here in our own backyard? How could you say no to that?!! The Student Care Welfare Fashion Show incorporates all of these things and is on soon, Sunday May 25 at 2pm.  Come along and see stunning designs by some of Brisbane’s best award winning young designers (some even modeled by me!), enjoy a fabulous high tea, browse pop up stalls and even be in with a chance to win a prize in one of the raffles or best hat competition! (Yes, you can get out your most fabulous fascinators once again!! :D)

You may be wondering why I am so passionate about this event. Well – apart from the fact that Student Care Welfare is one of the most hard working and life changing charities I have ever encountered – once upon a time, this was my event. As a contestant in the Miss World Australia competition I, with the immense help of Bec Cain and the Student Care Welfare team, created this event to raise much needed funds for children in need. The charity helps get thousands of children off the streets and offers counseling and support for those who need it. Funds raised from this years event will go towards preventing child homelessness, self-harm and suicide, problems that have sky rocketed in recent years. The charity is in desperate need of vital funds to continue it’s life saving work and is relying on your help through the support of this event.

Feel good in every way by spending the afternoon with friends and family, enjoy gorgeous fashions and delicious high tea and know that you may have just saved a child’s life. Tickets are selling fast, so don’t miss out and get your tickets online, here.

I know the opportunity to have a fantastic afternoon with family and friends while helping disadvantaged children will be enough to get you to the show but even still, here is a little about the designers whose collections you will have the pleasure of viewing.

Twenty-year-old Alice Litzow started sewing while in secondary school at St Margaret’s in Brisbane. After taking to fashion design like a “duck to water” she went on to study a Diploma of Fashion Studies at the Mount Gravatt Tafe. While there she won various awards including a national title for her formal wear at the Apex Teenage Fashion Awards and a trip to Japan for her swimwear. He style is edgy and takes it’s influence from the runways of Europe. She mixes leather and lace to create stunning one off formal designs as well as chic swimwear and daywear.

Lauren Smith’s collection for the show will be a little more “eclectic” as described by her mentor, Alison Wheeler. She covers more styles in her collections and has an individual appeal. She has a talent for creating beautiful evening wear and casual day wear. The young designer will show 12 pieces from her current collection in the show and is definitely a name to watch in the future!
