Charity shops to battle it out for top fashion crown

Have your say

FASHION Face Off returns to the Villa Marina in Douglas on Saturday (November 24) following the success of last year’s event.

Crossroads Care’s Formal Wear Shop will be on the catwalk defending its title as ‘Queen of Charity Shops’ against British Red Cross, Hospice Isle of Man and ManxSPCA.

The event showcases the island’s charity shop clothing, with guests voting for their favourite collection.

Wendy Campbell will see whether people can spot the difference between high street and designer outfits and give tips on dressing for your body shape/ colouring and how to give clothing a new lease of life.

And there will be a vintage catwalk, wearable art, and entertainment from Gena’s Dance Academy.

The Beauty Playground and champagne reception sponsored by Barclays opens at 6pm. For £5 guests can enjoy a 15 minute treatment such as manicures and make-up ahead of the show at 8pm.

Guests who donate a new/used handbag at the show will receive £100 of vouchers from Crossroads Care.

Buy tickets from the Villa box office, 600555 or For the Beauty Playground menu and treatment vouchers go to and buy in advance or on the door subject to availability.
