A fashion parade hosted by the Anglican Church showed that it is possible to be fashionable even on a small budget.
The event, called the Groove Scarf Competition, showcased the clothes and accessories from the church’s op-shop and the ladies’ skills at the catwalk.
Lettie Allen, one of the organisers and models of the event said many of the items were for sale.
“The event is a scarf competition, but it also shows the variety of the things for sale at our op-shop,” Ms Allen said.
“We have two judges, Cheryl and John Hawkins-Clark, and prizes for the best scarves, which some were donated and will be for sale and some are just part of the competition.
“There are about 60 scarves for sale and the money raised will go to the Anglican Board of Mission.”
Dean of the Anglican Church of Port Pirie, David Amery, said the parade is likely to become an annual event.
“We have a vision that something like this could make Port Pirie become the scarf capital of the world,” he said.
“I am only disappointed to see there were no entries from men... maybe next year.”
“We are very happy with this year’s participants and even had a 12.4 metre scarf in the competition. It might be a bit difficult to wear it though.”
“This is only the first year and we will be bigger and better next year.”
The fashion parade showed some nightwear, sleepwear, casual outfits and accessories, including some of the scarves.
The models were stunning and nailed it at the catwalk!
