Glitz & Glamour



Posted: October 30th, 2008

Carlisle Living magazine was launched this week and David Allen & Co has been getting involved in the sponsorship of the new magazine and being part of the “Glitz & Glamour” launch event.

This was a charity fashion show held at Carlisle Race Course on 29 October and had some of the Carlisle United players strutting their stuff in memory of player Peter Murphy’s girlfriend Kelly Gourlay.

Some of our staff had the pleasure of having VIP tickets for the show with prime seats on the front row so we wouldn’t miss a thing.

We were greeted with a champagne reception to start the night off then headed upstairs to catch the action.

The footballers were joined on the catwalk by some of their girlfriends and some professional models but the players did not look out of place at all infact they looked fantastic from where I was sitting.

They really got into the cabaret atmosphere, especially in the second half when the dirty dancing music started playing.

The whole night was a real success and was a great showcase for local businesses like Chameleon, Crème, Casanova, Hoopers and Edinburgh Woollen Mill whose clothes were modelled and Hair @ Jibe who did all the hair and makeup. Hopefully lots of money was raised for the nominated charities.
