Shaken and stirred at Fasque

The lovely surroundings of the recently refurbished Fasque House provided the ideal backdrop for a fashion inspired fundraising evening on March 22.

The surroundings were complemented by the fabulous balloon and flower decorations kindly supplied by Occasions in Brechin.

The event, organised by Sally Mack and Elizabeth Havens, raised over £2,400 for the Iris Cancer Partnership.

The evening started with 160 followers of high fashion enjoying cocktails and canapés whilst being serenaded by guitarist Rory Comerford.

This was followed by Lorna Forrester and Anne Williams of the Iris Board giving an update on the latest developments within the Charity.

The Fashion Show then performed a journey through this season’s fashion trends from Elizabeth Havens of Stonehaven and Laurencekirk using a variety of themes such as a Caribbean Cruise, the Cannes Film Festival, Ladies Day at the Races and an invitation to the Garden Party at Balmoral. The ladies on the catwalk were local Complimentary Therapists, Kim Pearce of Finella Therapies, Morna Wilson Smith, Jill Webster, Sally Mack and Sharon Pace, all volunteering their time and donating ‘lucky ticket’ prizes of treatments to winners.

Marie Church of Brechin and Emily and Caitlyn of Pamperzone in Laurencekirk kindly gave their time and skills for the models’ hair and makeup.

Four young men, students from RGU, helped during the evening and also took to the catwalk by accompanying the models in the second part of the show.   The event would not have been possible without the kind sponsorship of Peterkin Homes, Carnegie Fuels Ltd, D.M. Carnegie, Tom Church, The Edzell Tweedie and Alex Scott Kilt Outfitters.

Organiser Sally paid particular thanks to Fasque House, Occasions, Pamperzone, Marie Church, Pampermama, Sharon Pace and the ‘Toy Boys’.

She also expressed a ‘Special thank you’ to all who so generously supported the evening for what is a very deserving cause.
