Ushers wearing woolliwoolli garments at the Naponda Hospital Auxiliary fashion show fundraiser on Friday night – Eliza Conallin, Rachael Wishart and Chloe Charlton.
Friday night’s ‘woolliwoolli 2014’ fashion show raised a record $6400 for the Deniliquin Hospital, topping last year’s total of $5000.
The third annual Naponda Hospital Auxiliary charity catwalk saw about 200 people pack into the Deniliquin Town Hall.
Naponda Auxiliary president Pam Ellerman said the show had ‘‘such a great response’’.
‘‘We’ve had fabulous feedback, with people saying it’s the best one yet,’’ she said.
‘‘It was great to showcase local produce – wool, wines from Restdown and with the models being local too.
‘‘Jo does a great job and really knows how to sell her product.’’
Eight local models paraded designs from the woolliwoolli label of Deniliquin designer Jo Nathan.
The 2014 collection features an array of knitted garments including sweaters, cardigans, skirts, dresses, scarves and hats.
Mrs Nathan said she was ‘‘absolutely thrilled with how the evening went’’.
‘‘The turnout was amazing with close to 200 guests,’’ she said.
‘‘The town hall looked amazing with the lighting installed by Matt Kylie and Michael Ladson and the models were stunning with their runway look which was created by the talented girls at Hair Desir and Nicole Cavallaro from Beauty by Desir.
‘‘They also carried themselves with a very professional attitude, something I have watched develop over the last few years while working with these girls, so I was very proud of how they performed.
‘‘It was really great to see that the guests had made such an effort to dress up and enjoy a night of fashion in Deniliquin while also raising funds for the Deniliquin Hospital.
‘‘The Naponda Hospital Auxiliary again did an amazing job with the catering and general organisation of the event. I am very grateful to everyone who came along as well as those who generously donated their skills, services and products to make the show happen.
‘‘It was a real community effort, proving that when people cooperate and work together amazing things are possible.’’
The new collection will be available to purchase via the website www.woolliwoolli.com within the next few weeks.
Mrs Nathan encourages anyone interested in the designs to make an appointment and see the collection first hand.
‘‘One of the benefits of living here in Deni, locals have access to the woolliwoolli collection before the rest of the world,’’ she said.
The fashion show was supported by Deniliquin Council and Ricegrowers’ Association of Australia.
