Fashion Show Facts

Our fashion shows are guaranteed to be a fun evening for all those involved. We pride ourselves on offering a professional event whilst enabling you to raise lots of money for your chosen charity.

All we need from you is to provide the venue and sell the tickets, we can provide the rest.

We will showcase our latest collections of clothes, jewellery and accessories, all sourced from across the globe. Our collections are constantly changing so there is always something new hitting the runway. We will provide a bespoke range of outfits, tailored to your audience, all at very affordable prices.

Venue

Your venue must comfortably seat 100+ ladies, and accommodate clothes rails and tables for accessories.

We can do one of two types of fashion shows:
* Catwalk Style Fashion Show
* Around Tables Fashion Show

If you prefer Around Tables layout the room must have enough space between the tables and chairs for the models to walk past.

The venue must provide three trestle tables and have a minimum of two long mirrors within the customer changing area. They must also have a separate room close to the main room for the models to get changed in. This room can also be used after the event for your guests to try on, should they wish. The venue must be located on the ground floor.

Models

We have a team of models available for all fashion shows and we provide this free of charge. We pride ourselves on using ‘real life’ models, with real figures, who most guests can relate too.

Compere

We will introduce the event and compere throughout the show providing your guests with a commentary on prices, sizes and colours available in the styles showcased.

Advertising

There are many ways to promote your event. We suggest starting with a poster which will provide your audience with all the information they need. Distribute these in your local area, school or club. We can provide the Lucy Cobb logo should you need it.

Social Media is an extremely powerful tool when advertising your event, ask friends and family to share your fashion show on Facebook. We will put your fashion show on our Lucy Cobb Facebook page, which has over 11,000 followers. Try tagging our Facebook page in your posts to enable our followers to see it.

We will promote your fashion show on the Lucy Cobb Fundraising Fashion Show website pages.

Don’t forget to ask your friends and other committee members to spread the word about your event and help sell the fashion show tickets.

Tickets

To ensure a good turn out on the night, we ask that tickets are sold prior to your event.

We recommend starting to sell your tickets 4-6 weeks before the fashion show. We do however find there is often a last minute surge for tickets the week before an event.

We require a minimum of 100 ticket sold prior to all events.

We recommend pricing your tickets at a minimum of £5.00 per ticket to maximise your fundraising potential.
100% of the ticket sales will go to your charity.

Some of the hostesses will offer a welcome drink or free raffle ticket included in their ticket price. This is entirely your decision.

We suggest splitting the tickets between committee members to help sell them. We will also sell your tickets in Lucy Cobb Uppermill. You will be surprised how many events are beyond ‘sell out’ on the last minute.

Booking Fee

A £150.00 booking fee is required to secure all fashion show bookings. This fee is fully refundable after the event has taken place. Should the fashion show be cancelled within 6 weeks of the event date the fee becomes non-refundable.

Commission

As a thank you for helping to organise a Lucy Cobb Fashion Show we will donate 10% of the sales from the event to your chosen charity. We will pay your commission by BACS or cheque following the event. Should the guest numbers be below the 100 minimum quota the commission can not be paid. 

Fundraising Ideas

A raffle is a great way to raise money during your fashion show, as well as providing something fun for your guests to get involved in. Contact local businesses or ask committee members to to donate a prize. This is a good way to create interest in your fashion show.

If your venue doesn’t offer bar facilities, a good idea is to hold your own bar selling refreshments. This will increase the overall money raised on the night.

Payment & Returns

We accept debit/credit cards and cash for purchases on the evening.

We ask that you let your guests know this information prior to the fashion show.

If any of your guests are unhappy with an item they purchase we will be more than happy to swap the item for something else in store within 14 days of the fashion show. Unfortunately we cannot offer refunds, as the commission has already been paid.
