ISLE of Wight eco-clothing firm, Rapanui, is teaming up with a charity that provides services for people with learning disabilities to stage a fashion show.
Skateboarding company, Wight Trash, and the Getaround skate shop are also supporting Way Forward’s first fashion show.
Other boutiques to be featured at the show, on October 19, at West Wight Sports Centre, Freshwater, include Victoria Dale, The Shoe Box and Positively Different Products.
On the catwalk will be outfits designed by people who attend sessions at the charity’s outreach programme in Freshwater.
Way Forward works with people with autism and learning disabilities and the cash raised at the event is needed to ensure the West Wight programme can continue.
Guests will be treated to a champagne reception, live entertainment and a buffet.
Several exhibitors will offer discounts on their clothes and accessories.
Mini pamper treats will also be offered by TLC and Wight Beauty and there will also be a raffle.
Rob Drake-Knight, from Rapanui, said: "Rapanui is delighted to support this worthwhile cause. We’re passionate about both sustainability and local social impact and use our business where possible as a vehicle to support local social initiatives."
The walk-in event, from 6pm to 8pm, is open to all, with a donation at the door.
