Bloomin lovely spring fashions

FROCKS, smocks and lovely locks will all be on show for this week's Hortons Fashion Spring/Summer Fashion Parade.

The parade, which kicks off on Thursday evening at the store, will raise funds for Daffodil Day, with part of the proceeds of the event going towards cancer research, prevention and support services.

Hortons Fashion owner and parade co-ordinator Celina Hellyar said the evening would be a great opportunity to get the girls together, enjoy an evening of fashion, and support the fight against cancer.

"So many of my customers have a connection with cancer," Mrs Hellyar said.

"It's nice to do things for those ladies and promote a worthy cause."

Mrs Hellyar said the event, despite being for a serious issue, would also be a lot of fun.

"It's just nice to have a play around with fashion and try something you wouldn't normally buy," Mrs Hellyar said.

"Amazing fashion transforms the way you feel ... You can mix and match over the seasons and create a new look."

Mrs Hellyar said there would be something for everyone, with sizes ranging from 8-20 and a lot of natural fabrics.

Specialist breast cancer nurse Monica Hogan will be a guest speaker at the event, and parade attendees will go in the draw to win a pink Titleist golf bag donated by Lismore Golf Pro Shop.

Candi Hellyar one of the parade models, said she was looking forward to model- ling some of this season's latest fashions.

"I think it's a great way to see all the bright colours [of the season]," Candi said.

"It's raising money for a good cause too."

Included in the parade will be demonstrations of well-known cosmetics ranges and Christine headwear, an affiliate of the McGrath Foundation.
