View Full Version : Attention Sydney dwellers: Fashion parade incl. UB40 mus

Yep! yours truly is in charge of joint coordination of a charity fashion parade at College St, Sydney, outside St Mary's Cathedral this Saturday 25th!

It's all part of a big festival they're having, heaps of stalls, food etc those of you who like Op-shop stuff, we'll have second hand clothing - which is what we'll be modelling, yep, I'm part of that too LOL.

The charity I'm involved in is the well known St Vincent De Paul - btw you see Ali standing/walking past one of their centres in the Come out to Play vid clip - a nice coincidence :-)
They're not the one organising the whole festival, they're just having a stall and a fashion parade, which I agreed to run, and therefore have the ultimate decision as to which songs we use!! After much thought & head scratching...mind you, the organisers are only giving us 10-15 minutes, here are the three songs:

1. Kylie Minogue - Chocolate - Items: Casual/Corporate

2. Mr.Vegas - Western Girl(B15's Ju Ju Dub) - Items: Nightclub/night outings

3. UB40 - Can't help falling in love - Items: Evening wear/Formal/bridal

I was ready to contact Festival Mushroom,Virgin etc to get copyright permission when the Lady from Head Quarters informed me the Event organisers are getting the licence to cover all songs used on the day, so Thank GOD I have one less thing to do :-)

Those of you in Sydney, if you feel like dropping by, please do :-) make your way to the stage at 12:15-12:20pm,hail, rain or shine the event will go ahead as the area is covered.

For child protection reasons I'm unable to post images, cause a few of the girls modelling are under 18.

Full details:

Festival of Faith
College St, Outside St Mary's Cathedral.
Closest train station: St. James, as soon as you get out, you'll see Hyde Park & the Cathedral in the background, you can't miss it :-)

GOD Bless!!

The fashion parade I mentioned in a previous post was a hit Thank GOD, it didn't pour cats & dogs even though it looked like it might otherwise we would've had to cancel & although it rained a little about half way through, people were still watching with their umbrellas up! yes, we all know The UB boys draw crowds, even in the rain ;)
I even got a compliment from one of the organisers about my choice of music!

& Yep! It was great dancing along to Mr Vegas on stage - dancing and parading mind you LOL & parading to Can't help falling in love :-) It was so beautiful, with the wedding dress & all the formal wear & Ali going: And I...cannnnn't heeelp.... priceless!

& yes it rained on my parade but Bless! It was a good one!
