Night of fashion for surf club

LAUGHTER and banter echoed from Mantra on Salt Beach on Thursday night as fashionable women gathered for Bubbles on the Beach.

The Salt Surf Life Saving Club fundraiser was a hit with Tweed fashionistas, showcasing stunning designs from Dune, Lorna Jane, Sunburn and Yours Truly Lingerie.

The popular event was sold out days before the runway was laid, and the audience cheered as fashions in every shape and size hit the catwalk.

Co-organiser of the event, Susie Carpenter, who worked with Bev Clark and Stephanie Curtis, said the night was about fun and friendship.

“Every year the boys have a sportsman’s lunch and we wanted to do something for the ladies, and we thought what better than a fashion show?” Ms Carpenter said.

“All of the models are local girls and women who are taking part in the show.

“We are very happy with the response we have had. Many of the tickets were sold as soon as they went on sale.”

Tweed beauties Kath Hoare, Kareen Smith, Kelly Allen, Alana Cannon, Kath Kelly and Leonie Richards paraded styles for the upcoming winter season.

The fashion parade raised funds for building costs of Salt’s new clubhouse, planned as an extension of the current building on the foreshore at Salt Beach.
