Preparing for the “Walk This Way” fashion show

Walk This Way – A Fashion Show by Carole Waller & Blue in aid of The Forever Friends Appeal Cancer Care Campaign & St John’s Hospital Bath, UK

[youtube_sc url=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MGQm_gtbjok”]

Presenting a fusion of fashion, art and performance with all proceeds going to the Forever Friends Appeal’s Cancer Care Campaign at the Royal United Hospital and St John’s Hospital.

Local painter and textile artist Carole Waller presents her unique label ‘I’m No Walking Canvas’ in collaboration with designer boutique Blue accented with pieces from accessory designers Carole Wadham Millinery and Cate Wood Jewellery.

The evening soiree with drinks reception will play host to the creativity of the region championing Carole Waller’s signature ‘painted’ clothing with Blue’s contemporary and progressive summer designs. The fashion show to be held in the historic Octagon on Milsom Street will be brought to life by a broad range of models, including Fabulous Fashionista Jean Woods and actress Sara Kestelman, stamping the message that style and exquisite design can be enjoyed by all.

The team also includes Bath based choreographer, Emily Taylor and music from Will Renel, a current Mmus (Master of Music): Creative Practice in contemporary music at Goldsmiths College. Both Will and Emily have collaborated with Carole on previous occasions and as a creative team are looking forward to presenting a new take on clothes, movement and sound.

The event will raise essential funds to support art within the new Cancer Centre to improve the holistic environment for the patients, their families and the staff. Art takes many forms, and in this instance can include integrally etched windows that could act as screens, maximum use of light and colour to brighten waiting areas, small gardens, as well as lovely pieces of artwork, such Bruce Munro’s Brass Monkeys which has already been acquired. The charity aims to raise a total of £250,000 for art to really create a pioneering Centre that complements the existing high quality care for patients at the Hospital.

Additionally support will also be allocated to St John’s Hospital which aims to provide an improved quality of life, through housing and support for older people within the local community.

Please join us on Thursday 15th May at 7pm at the Octagon, Milsom Street, Bath for an exciting and vibrant evening of creativity and fundraising for The Forever Friends Cancer Care Campaign and St John’s Hospital.
