Popular Hawke’s Bay fashion show set to celebrate 100 years of Red Cross in style.

After two sell out years in Havelock North, Runway Red Cross is to showcase the latest in fashion at Napier’s War Memorial Centre on September 12.

Parading down the catwalk volunteer models of all ages, shapes and sizes will wear handpicked clothing from the Hawke’s Bay Red Cross retail stores. This year guest models from Napier City Rovers FC will grace the runway in clothes from Rodd & Gunn.

A special feature of the show is the inclusion of original nurses’ uniforms to recognise 100 years of Red Cross in New Zealand.

Karla Lee, New Zealand Red Cross East Cost Programmes Coordinator, says the showpiece uniforms were sourced from throughout the country.

“As Red Cross is celebrating 100 years of activity in New Zealand, Runway will include a very special segment in support of this celebration. Original VAD nurses’ uniforms will be worn on the cat walk in memory of and respect for those who wore them in war time and volunteered their service to the cause.”

Runway Red Cross will raise much needed funds for local youth programmes such as People Savers, SAM (Save-a-Mate) and Rise Up - Tairawhiti.

People Savers is a first aid course for kids, SAM (Save-a-mate) focusses on teaching secondary students to help ‘save a mate’ in alcohol and drug-related emergency situations. Rise Up - Tairawhiti is an outdoor education programme for 10-12 year olds organised by New Zealand Red Cross, with New Zealand Fire Service, Police and Army.

“Runway Red Cross has been Sold Out for the last two years, so be sure to get your tickets early”.

“Guests refer to Runway as one of the best nights out they have ever had. So if you want to smile and laugh till your cheeks hurt then come along to the show.”
Ms Lee says Red Cross is extremely grateful to local sponsoring businesses and people who are supporting the show by supplying clothes, doing the model’s hair and makeup and donating raffle prizes.
