As New York Fashion Week begins to wind down this year, the Eric Liddell Centre is teaming up with Andiamo to bring a touch of glamour to South Edinburgh as they host their second ever fundraising fashion show.
With support from George Watson’s College, the Bruntsfield based clothes shop will preview their latest collection in support of the dementia care charity and community hub on Thursday 12th September at the school.
Volunteers from the Eric Liddell Centre and pupils from George Watson’s will act as models for Andiamo’s clothing and accessories. Items from Beria will also be showcased.
Chief Executive of the Centre, John MacMillan said: “This exciting fundraising event brings together both the private and charity sectors, collaborating with one of our local schools, along with many volunteers who want to support the caring services of the Eric Liddell Centre.
I am so pleased to be able to work with Andiamo and George Watson’s College as we continue to make a difference to the lives of the people we serve.”
Linda Maxwell from Andiamo said: “We are delighted to be supporting the Eric Liddell Centre. Andiamo will be showing their new Autumn/Winter collection. Our ethos is something for everybody, all sizes, and all eventualities. Come along to help support your local independent store.”
Melvyn Roffe, Principal of George Watson’s College, said: “We’re proud to work with the Eric Liddell Centre as one of our Community Partners. I am sure that this event will be enjoyable for our pupils and everyone involved – as well as raising funds for the ELC. This is just one of the ways in which we encourage our pupils make a contribution to their community.”
Tickets can be purchased either at ELC reception or at Andiamo. They cost £15 per person and include a glass of fizz. The event is scheduled to begin at 7pm
