2nd December 2015 - Steil Fashion Show - WILLIAMS & WELSBY

The Steil Fashion Show, 2015

We arrived at the Castle Hotel at around 17:30 to frenetic activity from the Steil management who were busy rehearsing the models for this the annual Steil Fashion Show, in aid of Breast Cancer Care.


We'd intended having a quick look round then heading off for something to eat but it was clear the room was going to cause us some technical challenges, with multiple light colours and strengths - nothing we couldn't handle but it would need some thought, especially as angles to shoot from were limited.

Upstairs the clothes were racked and the models were being made up and having their hair done. There was a really positive buzz about the place and all appeared very well-organised, with a tray of sandwiches making the rounds, luckily passing within arm’s reach…

Downstairs people began to arrive. With everyone dressed to the nines it was going to be a very glamourous evening; to tell the truth Paul and I felt a bit underdressed. There was lots of laughter and much chatting, people enjoying the complimentary bubbly and canapes. Amidst all this sneaked Elvis Desley. He couldn’t be the surprise star act, could he…?

Before long the immaculately-dressed Yvonne Evans, S4C’s weather expert, stood up to start the fashion show itself. The whole event is was organised for a great cause – Breast Cancer Care – a charity that aims to provide information and offer emotional and practical support, to bring people affected by breast cancer together whilst campaigning for improvement in standards of support and care and promoting the importance of early detection.

Needless to say the models looked superb and were well-practised in their routines. We didn’t head upstairs during the catwalk session but it must have been organised chaos because there were some very quick changes. Here are a few images from the evening.

A mid-show break allowed for the raffle to be drawn and at the end of the show Yvonne built the audience up for, you guessed it, Elvis Desley! He performed a magnificent set and had the audience up on their feet, a fitting climax to a great evening.
