As New York Fashion Week begins to wind down this year, the Eric Liddle Centre is teaming up with Andiamo to bring a touch of glamour to South Edinburgh to host its second fundraising fashion show.

With support from George Watson’s College, the Bruntsfield-based clothes shop will preview its latest collection in support of the dementia care charity and community hub on Thursday (12 September) at the school.

Volunteers from the Eric Liddell Centre and pupils from George Watson’s will act as models for Andiamo’s clothing and accessories. Items from Beria will also be showcased.

Linda Maxwell, from Andiamo, said: “We are delighted to be supporting the Eric Liddell Centre. Andiamo will be showing their new Autumn/Winter collection. Our ethos is something for everybody, all sizes, and all eventualities. Come along to help support your local independent store.”

Eric Liddell chief executive John MacMillan said: “This exciting fundraising event brings together both the private and charity sectors, collaborating with one of our local schools, along with many volunteers who want to support the caring services of the Eric Liddell Centre.

"I am so pleased to be able to work with Andiamo and George Watson’s College as we continue to make a difference to the lives of the people we serve.”

The fashion show will take place at George Watsons’ College Dining Hall on Thursday 12 September at 7.30pm. Tickets for the event cost £15 per person and include a drinks reception. These can be purchased at the Eric Liddell Centre reception or in store at Andiamo (27 Forbes Rd, Edinburgh EH10 4EG).
