As New York Fashion Week came to an end this year, the Eric Liddell Centre teamed up with Vivaldi to bring a touch of glamour to the capital as they hosted a fashion show of their own.
With support from George Watson’s College, Moi Beauty and Craig Davidson Hair, the Morningside based fashion boutique previewed their latest collection in support of the dementia care charity and community hub on Thursday 13th September at the school.
Volunteers from the Eric Liddell Centre, the local community and pupils from George Watson’s acted as models for Vivaldi’s clothing and accessories.
The event raised over £1,200 for the benefit of the Eric Liddell Centre and created a real buzz in the local community and on the night in front of £150 guests.Chief Executive of the Centre, John MacMillan said:
“This exciting fundraising event brought 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 Vivaldi and George Watson’s College as we continue to make a difference to the lives of the people we serve.”
Lesley Drummond of Vivaldi said:
“We are delighted to support our neighbour, the Eric Liddell Centre raising money for a great cause. Working together with other local businesses, Moi Beauty and Craig Davidson Hair, we gave New York Fashion Week a run for its money right on our doorstep.”
Melvyn Roffe, Principal of George Watson’s College said:
“We’re really pleased to be able to work with Vivaldi and the ELC to support their excellent work. This is just one of the ways in which our pupils make a contribution to their community and I am sure that they will enjoy taking part.”
