Last week figleaves.com were honoured to support the Teens Unite charity fashion show in Hertfordshire. Toni and Guy provided all the hair and make up for the models, including our very own Jerry and Lauren. We dressed 25 models in our AW09 lines, with some sneak peeks at what to expect from SS10.

We’d like to give a huge thank you to all our models for strutting their stuff. Other than Emma Noble who opened the show for us, none were professional models. All were ordinary people volunteering their time to lend their support and we were overwhelmed by their positive and confident attitudes, especially those of the boys as they sashayed down our catwalk in just their Calvins.
Our marketing manager Christina had put together an array of outfits featuring pieces from our swim, lingerie, loungewear, luxury, party and men’s underwear collections. Remi looked a dream in the Carol Malony Morning Dew set in powder pink, adorned with a frosting of sparkles. Jade captured the spirit of burlesque in the red Dita Von Teese Satin Teese bra and waist cinching suspender belt, complete with figleaves Italian hosiery. Representing the men, Paddy and Pete stepped out in luxury John Smedley knits, Calvin Klein jeans and cosy figleaves loungewear.

The catwalk show was choreographed by the charismatic Kevin Adams. He did a fantastic job at putting all the models through their paces and ensured our runway was as packed with turns and pouts as it was with tasty treats.
Outside, the lovely Lisa worked tirelessly selling the featured products which the fashion show audience were clamouring to get their hands on as for Christmas gifts. Favourites from the evening included the figleaves embellished hem dress, the Adele Marie snake beaded bracelet, cute, fluffy robes for your little Christmas angels and candles by True Grace, all of which will make for a perfect pile under the tree this season.
