A BRIDAL fashion show in aid of the Children’s Hospice Association Scotland (CHAS) takes place at Society later this month.

The evening of sophistication, inspiration and excitement on April 28 has been organised by local designer and dressmaker Ann Hardie and a group of HND fashion students from Adam Smith College.

All funds from the black tie event, which has been given the title ‘Ann Hardie Designs presents ‘Precious’’, will go to the charity to aid their work of providing respite and offering assistance to children and young people with life-shortening condiditons as well as support for their families.

The fundraiser is the first of two this year planned by Ann, as in September she will complete a 10 day trek to Machu Picchu in Peru to raise money for the children’s charity.

As well as an elegant catwalk show, displaying the beautiful designs she has created, the fundraiser will also feature a silent auction with lots donated by local businesses.

Alongside the students, Ann has enlisted support from The Flower Boutique, Dance Ecosse, The Migele Experience, Lifetime Photography and Tracey Nicol Make Up for the event.

Complementary champagne and cupcakes will also be on offer on the night.

Ann said: “I am excited to be working with the amazing Adam Smith fashion students as I started my profession there many years ago as a student and more recently as a lecturer and want to inspire them to reach their goals in the fashion industry.

“Keeping local businesses involved is paramount to the success of top businesses in Kirkcaldy as they produce exceptionall service to their industry and are giving their precious time and effort for free.”

She added: “I have raised funds for many charities over the years but have decided CHAS is a very good charity that helps children and their families.”

Tickets for the bridal fashion show are priced £10 and are available from Ann Hardie Designs, High Street and Society, Charlotte Street, Kirkcaldy.
