In November 1991 the Fashion House, Millom, presented the latest in clothes by top British designers and Italian, French, German and Scandinavian fashion houses.

The event raised £1,000 for local charities.

The show took place at the Bankfield House Hotel and attracted around 250 people, who admired the clothes being modelled.

The event was organised by the Millom Inner Wheel Club.

Club president Joyce Whitaker welcomed everyone and thanked the Fashion House.

The six models were Angela, Denise, Felicity, Joan, Lynn and Pat.

Background music was provided by Chris Clouter and Peter Koth.

Two bridal outfits were modelled by the brides who had worn them earlier that year – Zareena and Sandra.

One was in white dupion with embroidered motifs in crystals and pearls and the other was in pure silk ivory with a waterfall train and finished off with pearls and roses.

Both dresses were sewn by Irene Mackereth, of Millom. Floral arrangements were by June.

In April 1993 a Dairy Crest-sponsored charity fashion show was held at the Coronation Hall at Ulverston.

The event featured clothes from the Honeysuckle Boutique.

There was a step aerobic work-out from Imago Fitness Centre and proceeds from the event went to local charities.

Another fashion show staged in 1991 was held at Forum 28 at Barrow in aid of the South Cumbria Dyslexia Association.

It raised more than £400 for equipment at Barrow’s new dyslexia centre at Alfred Barrow School, which was due to open that November.

Fashion clothes for the event were supplied by Options, of Bolton-le-Sands in north Lancashire.

In summer 1994 a charity fashion show was staged at the Lisdoonie Hotel in Barrow.

The event was organised by Rave and was to raise money for people suffering from cancer.

About 120 people attended and more than £400 was raised.
