A Fashion Show for Charity

Photos: Tara Nofal 

Last week I walked the ramp in a fashion show for a charity event by Helping Hands. The event took place in the ballroom of a 5-star hotel. Every year the event takes place just before Ramadan and includes a sumptuous breakfast buffet and a chance for the attendees to socialise and have a fun morning. The money from the ticket sales and raffles goes to support the security guards at a local school, while sponsors fees go towards local societies for children with cancer, autism or Down syndrome as well as children who are orphans.

There's a different theme every year and this year’s theme included a fashion show featuring traditional Arab clothes from Plus 973 Artisanat Gallery. It also had a Fashion Bazaar with 30 vendors offering fashion, accessories, jewellery and various other items.

All of us models were from non-model backgrounds, and we did the fashion show for free. There were around ten of us from different age groups, cultures and careers. We were coordinated by Esky Girmay, who is the Honorary Consul to Ethiopia in Bahrain, a movie producer and multiple-business-owner.

All of us had a great time wearing the beautiful traditionally Arabic outfits and walking the ramp. 

Here are a few photos:

My lovely friend Valentina Simon who I asked to join the show and she immediately agreed

Helping Hands was started in 2015 when two working mums, Aniseh and Nancy, decided to raise some funds in Ramadan for the security guards at St Christopher’s School, where both their children are pupils.

I wanted to take this jalabiya home!

I really enjoyed the experience. I got to meet lots of lovely ladies, got to wear gorgeous clothes, and got a chance to do the catwalk. And thankfully, I didn't trip and fall on the runway!

Until next time
