Southampton's most stylish and creative citizens gathered together at the classy cocktail bar, Orange rooms, last night to celebrate fashion. "Its great to see people out in support of a great cause!" said Sarah-Leigh, managing editor of and prime organiser of the event.

The night started with a delightful acoustic set from
Kelly Mordecai whose soulful voice and sweet personality charmed the audience and set a light hearted atmosphere within the bar. It was not all about the live music however as there was plenty to see and do; upstairs there was an accessories bar where you could buy kitsch handmade accessories. There was also a stall for 3H Italia showcasing their latest collection of watches, art from the uniquely talented artist Lisa Jean and my favourite, a stall for Hepwrights Vintage!

There was also another room upstairs for Oxfam, (who all profits throughout the night were being donated to), who were selling music and clothing.

Unfortunately I was helping out on the door when the fashion show commenced, but I did run in and have a sneaky peak and the models looked fabulous and their audience entranced! Being sat at the door though I did get to witness the finishing of the graffiti piece that was being done outside.

Overall I think that the first EVER Style Society was a huge success considering it was the first of its kind in Southampton! Sarah said, "It was great to see so many people enjoying the entertainment and donating generously! The next few days will see the final donations pour in and we look to be well on target to enable a classroom to be built as part of Oxfam's Unwrapped scheme!"

I can't wait till the next one and am certain that it will be even bigger and better than before so make sure you come to!
