Preview: Living Vintage Fashion Show
The Living Vintage travelling fashion show promises to be something special when it rolls into the Grand Opera House on the evening of 4th June, 40’s film star Joan Crawford (above) would be in her element!
A flurry of gowns, suits, hats and gloves, along with the models who will put on the style, will fit perfectly into this elegant and beautiful building.
Over the years sisters Bridget Owens and Marian Keenan have gathered a fabulous collection of fashion garments from the 40s and 50s and by taking their show around the country have raised a lot of money for local charities. On Thursday this not-for-profit organisation, based in Downpatrick, will be presenting their cat walk show in aide of the Seán Crummey Foundation.
For over 10 years Seán wrote and starred in the BBC’s hugely successful ‘The Folks on the Hill’ and with his keen observation, political satire and wit he proved his comic genius, he was the voice of them all. The show was a hit and was appreciated by politicians across Northern Ireland who looked forward to being scripted into the programme. Seán died on the 13th November 2011 from a cancer–related illness and this fund has been established by his family in memory of a man who will be remembered for his gentle humour and keen appreciation of our political scene. The Fund in his name supports research into bowel cancer by the Queen’s University of Belfast Centre for Cancer Research & Cell Biology .
