Events - Lunacy Boutique 'Filmology' Fashion Show

London, New York, Paris, capitals of the world, they all held their fashion weeks over the past month, and now it’s Wales’s turn. Step up Lunacy Boutique, in association with Ty Olwen and Ovacome ( An Ovarian Cancer Charity). This charity event was attended by a 100 strong crowd of fashion conscious ladies and gentlemen all keen to see what the Autumn Winter collections would bring.

Held at The Towers Hotel in Swansea all the guests were treated to a cupcake on arrival and a goodie bag with vouchers for Lara Johnson and Lunacy Boutique itself. Lara Johnson’s team (winner’s of the British Hairdresser of the Year) was also the amazing talent behind all the make up and hairstyles on the models walking the catwalk.

The Lunacy Annual Charity Show, now in it’s 6th year, choses a different theme each year, this years was ‘Filmology’. The show was split in to 4 separate sections, each based on a different film: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Saturday Night Fever, Kill Bill and Four Weddings and a Funeral. The clothing and jewellery were from the Lunacy Boutiques store in Port Talbot or their online store. The hats and fascinators, which featured in the ‘Four Weddings and a Funeral’ section, were made by Welsh Milliner Kate McKenny. Plus the flowers used were by ‘The Flower Box’ from Forge Road.

This fun packed show was full of music (and props!) from each of the films, and in all honesty was like no other catwalk show I had ever seen before. The models danced their way down the catwalk in styles reminiscent of each of the musical tracks.

The ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ show was all sugary sweet, with cute bright dresses, girly tops and skirts, sweetie inspired jewellery and candy coloured hair.

The ‘Saturday Night Fever’ show was all about the big hair and bright make up! Think fur jackets, flares and corduroy, and seriously retro print dresses!

‘Kill Bill’ was all sexy and strong. Their harsh hair and make up was reminiscent of Uma Thurman herself. The clothing was bold and eye-catching and the jewellery featured speech bubbles in the style of comic books.

(I want that jumper!)

Finally ‘Four Weddings and a Funeral’ started all depressing and sombre with a show of little black dresses and veiled fascinators and ended on a high or beautiful prom gowns and even a modern wedding dress!

The primary reason for the event was of course to help raise funds and awareness of Ty Olwen Hospice and Ovacome and the research it is involved in. With the sales of the tickets for the event and for the amazing raffle they had (plus for the popcorn that was on sale) I hope I can say that the event was a huge success and helped raise a significant amount of money for the two charities.

Paloma Faith for La Senza

The Amazing Vintage Queen Paloma Faith and the always sexy and stylish La Senza have teamed up to produce a range of 1940's style lingerie and sleepwear in aid of Breast Cancer Research UK.

With 50,000 people being diagnosed ever year with Breast Cancer in the UK, it is now the most common form of cancer, and will effect so many peoples lives. So that being said every penny that can be raised to help fund research for a cure is needed. For every item sold a percentage will be donated to Breast Cancer Research UK.

The line will launch on the 5th October and will be sold in 30 stores across the UK and online. So you better get yours quick if you want some.

And here is a little song from the amazing lady herself.
