Paris, London, Milan, New York...Lismore!
Last night saw another fabulous event being held in Lismore's Back Alley Gallery.
THREAD was a fashion catwalk spectacular featuring local designers, Tafe costume and fashion students and local fashion retailers. Gretel Killeen was the night's emcee with entertainment provided by local talent The No Frills Twins and Tommy Franklin the Dancing Man. Proceeds from the evening will go to local cancer charity, Under the Red Dress Project.
Great vibe with a few hundred people filling the alley surrounded by colour, music, happy faces, community and oh yeah...fashion!
Tommy arrives in his own inimitable style.
