We are presenting two Period Fashion Shows this month. I am very excited to announce that the first show at Killingworth is to be filmed and featured on television! The second show is to be presented at beautiful historic Washington Old Hall in Tyne and Wear!
My exciting and dynamic Period Fashion Show includes historically inspired costumes worn by models accompanied by beautiful period music. There is also a brief history of each historical figure and a talk about the design and construction of each costume. Our show includes Elizabeth I, Henry VIII, Anne Boleyn, Jane Seymour, Catherine Howard and Mary Queen of Scots taking off her velvet robes to reveal her elegant execution gown.
We have been booked by North Tyneside Council to present our Tudor Fashion Show at the White Swan Centre in Killingworth on Thursday 25th September 2014. The Centre has excellent facilities and is used to present special events such as weddings and shows. It is an attractive airy building with beautiful natural light – a wonderful setting for our Show.
My Tudor Fashion Show at Killingworth is to be featured on television. It is to be filmed by South Korean TV Station KBS – the Korean equivalent of the BBC. KBS produces award winning documentaries internationally. The documentary is to be called ‘Fashionable’ – it will be filmed in UHD, the latest high definition and will be all about hidden and amazing history about fashions, focusing on Corsets and Renaissance Costumes. We are very excited to be a part of this excellent production.
The show is to presented on Thursday 25 September 2014 at 7pm – for more information including details of how to book please visit the following-
The following evening Friday 26 September we will presenting our Tudor Fashion Show again in the wonderful Washington Old Hall in Washington Village for the National Trust. Washington Old Hall is a Manor house associated with the family of George Washington, the first president of the USA. At the heart of the historic Washington village lies the picturesque stone manor house and its gardens which provide a tranquil oasis, reflecting gentry life following the turbulence of the English Civil War. The building incorporates parts of the original medieval home of George Washington’s direct ancestors, and it is from here that the family took their surname of ‘Washington’. It will provide a wonderful historical setting for my historically inspired costumes. I am really looking forward to presenting the show in such an amazing setting – for more information visit http://www.durhamnt.org.uk/socials.html
It is an very exciting time – I do hope you will join us and become part of my costume events!
