Wrap yourself in Bangalow fashions

A passion for fashion was what prompted Bangalow retailer Alana Manion to launch the Wrapped in Bangalow fashion parade three years ago.

The parade won the Community Event of the Year in the Byron Shire Australia Day awards last year and is organised to showcase local Bangalow retailers. But it also raises money for local charities, with proceeds this year going towards the Munch and Crunch healthy eating programs at Bangalow and Newrybar schools and to Bangalow Ground Force a group of locals that tend the gardens in the towns main street.

Alana said fashions being showcased span classic designer one-offs, casual, mother-of-the-bride, childrens wear, swim-wear, antique kimonos with stylish accessories, shoes and handbags.

She said the clothes were dateless, beautiful and sophisticated and came in a range of sizes.

The audience will be greeted with champagne on arrival and finger food provided by Leah Roland from the Bangalow Cooking School.

Wrapped in Bangalow fashion parade is on next Thursday, October 19, at the Bangalow A&I Hall at 6.30pm. Tickets cost $22 and are available from Bangalow 2479 or Barebones Art Space.
