Vintage never looked so good

DARLING Range Seniors Hub (DRSH) put on a show this week, opting to give back to the community in style.

The not-for-profit organised Recycled Style: A Fashion Show on Wednesday, August 11, a runway charity event aimed to promote connectivity within the community.

Members of the hub wore clothes brought in by the Kalamunda CWA, The Esther Foundation and local boutique Bubble and Squeak, strutting their stuff on the stage at the Jack Healy centre.

Profits from clothes sold were donated back to each group.

DRSH coordinator Jacqui Pettett said she hoped the event inspired people to give back and increase connection between generations.

“Our group is all about friendship and connection, so forging bonds with the younger girls from the Esther Foundation was lovely,” she said.

“They do great work helping young girls from crisis backgrounds and hosting an event to help them was great.

“It’s also good to let people know that we’re here as a group as we don’t want anyone in the Kalamunda area growing old alone.”

Ms Pettett said the event was very enjoyable.

“It was a bit like herding kittens, getting all our members/models ready and dressed to go out on stage,” she said.

“Everyone seemed to have a great time and it was a sold-out event.

“We thank our sponsors Bendigo Bank for their support.”

Model Derek Winter rocked a beret he thought was very snazzy.

“I should be a professional model,” he said.
