Following on from the success of Ashdon’s ‘Frocks and Frillies’ show in February, the village hosted a fashion show recently.

A repeat performance by popular demand was done on October 27 at the village hall.

Advertised as a ‘Fashion Show with a difference’ the audience of over 100 were taken on a trip through two hundred years of village history.

More than 60 costumes were displayed, beginning with nine white muslin dresses from the time of Jane Austin and concluding with a 1960’s mini skirt.

Historical village details and anecdotal stories accompanied the fashion parade, all mixed with a large pinch of humour.

Organised by the Village Museum and Women’s Institute, from who many of the models came, the evening was again hailed a success.

A special word of thanks is due to the teenagers who joined the cast and helped to make the

evening so memorable.

Among the clothing on display was a dress from England’s World Cup winning year, donned by Rosemarie Grant.

Jeffrey Goodwin was also among the models on the catwalk, sporting a 1960’s ensemble.

Oliver Coston showed off a 1947 DeMob suit, partnered by Alice Eddenshaw in a 1949 wedding dress.
