Five shops from Woodbridge’s Thoroughfare are getting together to show off the best of late 2018 fashion in Woodbridge Library.

Four clothes shops, members of the Parkside Group of Thoroughfare retailers, will be joined by the newest menswear retailer in the town to show a range of styles, brands and colours.

“This is going to be a superb way of promoting the quality and style available in our independent shops,” said Nicky Risby, proprietor of Ninni Noo and one of the main organisers of the event.

Holly Blue, Ninni Noo, Laura Jane and Sweet Dreams will be showing clothes for all adult ages from classic brands such as French Connection and St Tropez, from casual styles to knitwear and nightwear, from the classically smart to ‘up-to-date edgy’. The fifth shop on show will be from a bit ‘off-Thoroughfare’: Carbon Male opens in early October in Quay Street and will be a welcome addition to the town’s menswear options.

The Parkside Group, so named because of their proximity to Elmhurst Park, was formed 18 months ago to promote the shops at the Melton end of the Thoroughfare.

The show will celebrate the success of the independent retailers trading down the street at the heart of Woodbridge.

Holding a fashion show in the library may appear odd to some but organisers are convinced it’s the right place for the event.

“It’s because I love the Library,” says Sue Risby of Holly Blue, “and because the Library is so firmly at the centre of the Woodbridge community.”

Tickets for the event cost £8 which includes a drink on arrival. They are available from any of the participating shops or from the Library and entry will be by ticket only.

A number of other retailers will have table-top sales and there will be a raffle with great prizes during the interval.

The event will take place on Wednesday October 17 at Woodbridge Library.

Doors will open at 7.00pm for drinks and viewing. Table-top sales will be open before the show begins at 7.30pm.
