Fashion show and a tea, with some twists

For some weeks now, a group of dedicated female volunteers have been working on a special event to be held in Daglan on Sunday, June 2 — an event built around a fashion show and vintage-clothing sale, with the added bonus of a true afternoon tea, the kind featuring all sorts of goodies.

The event has been organized by a group of the women who belong to the Club de l’Amitié Daglanaise, or the Daglan Friendship Club, including my wife Jan.

So far, the women have not only planned and organized the event but collected a lot of used but well-cared-for clothing (for women, men and children), sorted it, and priced it for sale.

The event will begin at 3 p.m. in the village’s Salle des Fêtes with the fashion show. The entry fee is 7.5 euros, which includes the afternoon tea (including cakes and small sandwiches). Another 2.50-euro contribution will allow the guest to enjoy Prosecco as well as tea.

After the fashion show, attendees will be invited to shop among all the articles for sale. Proceeds from the event are destined for two charities — one being a group that helps people coping with cancer, and the other being an organization that helps refugees.

Reservations are recommended, and may be made by phoning either Judith Thomason at 06-71-18-43-55, or Jacqui Lindsey-Smith at 05 – 53 – 29 – 52 – 12.

In closing, here’s a look at the poster that’s been printed to promote the Salon de la Mode Vintage:
