fashion Show July 13th

Less than a month to go till Andrea Bonnell's and Grandma Chic's fashion show!!
Grandma Chic and Andrea Bonnell present an evening of buzzing creativity, live music and fashion at Ort Cafe, based in the Old Printworks, Balsall Heath, Birmingham.
Opening the evening will be acoustic duo Mellow Peaches. “Purveyors of rootsy stomps and gutsy grooves, the unassuming Peaches have long immersed themselves in traditional, organic and freshly sourced American blues and roots, mixing it up with their own gumbo of exotic flavours to create a wholesome dish that aids digestion.” The first of two fashion shows will follow, presenting the collections of independent local designers Andrea Bonnell and Grandma Chic in an unusual take on the classic catwalk. “Andrea Bonnell’s fashion ethos is a mission to enhance natural female curves, combining tailored quality with contoured structuring. Her latest collection is inspired by the powerful and sexually emancipated Bond Girl.” Grandma Chic, an ethical fashion label who produce handmade and upcycled clothing using vintage, reclaimed and sustainable materials, will also have a pop-up shop to browse and purchase from.

Also playing are groovy electric duo Return of The Bygones, a new project from Abie and Dan of Abie’s Miracle Tonic, Little Sister and The Destroyers. Following the second catwalk show Pretentious Class will close the evening, “energetic and ballsy, Pretentious Class are a five piece rock and roll band with the spirit of times gone by and a sound to match.”
Admission is £5 on the door, and includes a free raffle ticket. Prizes will also be given for the best dressed with the theme being ‘Come as your favourite music icon’.Doors are at 8pm with music from 8.30pm.
