Whitecliffe’s biggest-ever Fashion Show was hosted on Saturday 23rd November at the Viaduct Events Centre. The impressive large-scale production was comprised of 46 designers showcasing 750 garments making up over 271 outfits, all seen by over 1000 people. Murray Bevan, Director of Showroom 22, was the MC on the night. The front row was scattered with notable industry figures with Helen Cherry, Zambesi, Liz Mitchell, Kate Sylvester, Moochi and Trelise Cooper all represented.
