Bernews: Fashion Show Fundraiser at Verdmont
A fashion show fundraiser last Saturday [Oct 1] at the Bermuda National Trust’s Verdmont property.
A spokesperson said, “Verdmont, a Bermuda National Trust historic house and garden, was the splendid setting for a one-of-a-kind fabulous fashion show on Saturday October 1st. Most likely for the first time in its 300-year history it hosted a Fashion Show Fundraiser!
“Sharon Nannini of Nannini’s Fashion showcased a variety of garments from European designers from Italy, France, Spain, Portugal and Ukraine. Eleven Bermuda models showed off more than 50 outfits beautifully to a group of women interested in elegant yet comfortable and relaxed fashion. All outfits were designed and made in Europe with only natural fibers such as raw linen, cotton and viscose.
“Donna Pink moderated the event in the most entertaining fashion and brought her locally made custom jewelry to complement the outfits of the models. The garments and jewellery were on sale after the show and part of the proceeds were donated towards the Bermuda National Trust’s cultural and natural heritage programmes by Nannini’s fashion. Gosling’s kindly donated refreshments for the afternoon.
Head of Development Dr. Dörte Horsfield stated, “This was such a well-received and fun event. The guests, many of whom had never set foot into Verdmont, loved the elegant setup, the warm autumn breeze blowing through the open windows and doors, the cool Prosecco and the beautiful models walking through the rooms showcasing the fabulous pieces Sharon Nannini selected for the show. We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect afternoon!”
