More about the photo shoot
ESPC will be ‘talking Italian’ as its protégés take part in a fashion shoot ahead of a charity dinner later this month. Olympic hopeful, skier Anna Vincenti and Paralympic athlete, Libby Clegg, both sponsored by ESPC, will don the latest Italian and Scottish fashions in the ESPC showroom, prior to the Italian Scottish Fashion Show Dinner at Gosford House on 21st March.
Styled by top designers including, Misuma’s Caterina Monico and Edinburgh based Judy Clark, the collection also features Milan based Maison Olivia, showcasing the finest fashion for this eclectic catwalk.
Ahead of the event, the ESPC showroom on Edinburgh’s George Street is showing a sample of the fashion show designers’ work. A preview event, free to attend and open to the public is taking place at 12.30 – 2pm on Friday 8th March. Here you can get a chance to meet the designers and see a selection of their work with refreshments provided. See how these two will be tranformed from their day-to-day sports wear to glitz and glamour!
Fashion Show Dinner
The Italian Scottish Fashion Show Dinner is being held in aid of Sense Scotland and La Lega del Filo d’Oro, charities supporting thousands of disabled people and their families affected by deafblindness.
Sponsoring the event, Malcolm Cannon, Chief Executive at ESPC said:
“Gosford House is a fantastic ornate property and will form a stunning backdrop for the Italian Scottish Fashion Show charity dinner.
“It will be great to see the two Olympic hopefuls we sponsor, Anna Vincenti and Libby Clegg, in their finery as they take part modelling on the catwalk in our very own showroom..
“It is a fun way to raise money for charity and ESPC is delighted to be supporting this worthwhile cause.”
Libby Clegg, silver medallist at the Paralympic Games 2012 added:
“The photo shoot will be a fantastic experience and I can’t wait to get out of my trainers and tracksuit to wear a stylish dress designed by Maison Olivia and help raise funds for Sense Scotland.”
ESPC is also running a competition to win one of the dresses modelled by Libby or Anna on the night, as well as a Starbucks hamper and House of Fraser vouchers. The dress, has been donated by White Rabbits Boutique in Dunoon, exclusive stockists of Maison Olivia dresses.
