Fashion in July 2021

A Luncheon and Fashion Parade was held at the Bairnsdale Sporting and Convention Centre on Saturday 10th July.  An extremely successful event with a sell out crowd who enjoyed a delicious two course lunch to start the afternoons proceedings.

The Fashion Parade sponsored by Lloyd’s Men's and Women's Fashions, and  Seven Sunday's Women's Fashions, was compered by Lloyd himself with some great stories and insights into the fashion industry.

Our models did a wonderful job, with outfits from formal wear to jeans and short sets and beautiful merino suits.  A big thank you to our three members Avis, Kathie, Maureen; and Julie, Kim and Ben, Ricky and Rob. for showing the various outfits off so well.

Our Club have been lucky to have ongoing support from the Bairnsdale Sporting and Convention Centre and we appreciate the support from St Marys Primary School.
