Photos From The Fashion Show with Chloe James Lifestyle

Hi All,

Here are just some of the photos from the fashion show at the Cote Brasserie with Chloe James Lifestyle. It was a fantastic night raising funds and awareness of HIV too. We are hugely grateful to the staff and customers of Chloe James for making the event such a success.

Next event coming up is at the town hall on 30th May, details to come soon but get ready for a party with a difference… keep watching this space but keep the evening free..

Thanks for your continued support as ever,

The Crescent Team

Huge Thanks To Chloe James Lifestyle

Hi All,

The fundraising event and fashion show last night was an amazing success, having sold out earlier in the week still more people came along on the night it seems. Raffle tickets sold well too and are still on sale for the next few days at the Chloe James shop in the High Street or by phone on 01727 843431. Lots of fantastic prizes all donated by amazingly generous local businesses.

We must say a huge thank you to everyone who came last night, or bought a raffle ticket, donated a prize, provided services for the models or generally gave up their time to help out. The most important thanks go to the staff, models, and customers, of Chloe James Lifestyle and the Cote Brasserie for all of the hard work that went into organising the event and inviting us to participate.

Such a lovely night and proof that St Albans is a vibrant and caring city full of generous people.

Thank you one and all,

The Crescent Team
