Local artists celebrate successful fundraising M&Co Fashion Show

DAN artists turned models for the evening as they paraded in M&Co’s latest fashions in a bid to raise money for the Droitwich Arts Network.

DAN is always looking to raise funds to continue their artistic activities with the public and to engage more people in the arts. Wednesday 14th March was no exception, as, with the help of M&Co staff and friends, they held a fashion show. Over 80 guests attended to support the models, take part in the raffle and above all, shop!

Helen Karakashian, Chair of Droitwich Arts Network, said: “It was an excellent night with great community spirit. I would certainly like thank the local businesses such as Park’s Café, Café Morso, Muffin Break and the Community Centre who came to our aid with their chairs”.

Rosie, artist and model, said: “It was nerve-racking at first but we soon entered into the spirit of the evening and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I don’t think I will give up my day job just yet though!”

Vice Chair of DAN, Malcolm Wakeman, added: “With the help of M&Co and our own Helen, we took to the catwalk with some slightly eccentric models. What they lacked in expertise they made up for in enthusiasm and entertainment value. A fun time was had by all but we don’t expect to make the front cover of Vogue magazine!”

Helen finished by thanking everyone who attended the evening for their generous support “which will help to spread the joy of arts and crafts throughout the community”.

Thank you to all those who have helped make the future work of the network possible.
