Thursday night saw Bath’s well-heeled fashionistas and a bevy of fashion and textile students descend on the city’s quirky Octagon venue for an evening of see and be-seen at a fashion show by Bath-based textile artist Carole Waller.
There were loads of film and media folk too, going by the sheer weight of high-tech camera and video equipment. And brand new, soon-to-be-launched Bath “digital magazine” (read: “web site”) EdenBath was present with not one, but two correspondents in evidence. Watch this space for a report from its November launch party, if they remember to send me an invitation.
The even was recorded for UCA Journalism News by this roving correspondent via iPhone. More to come on its shortcomings as a journalistic reporting tool.
Typically the venue’s power cut out shortly after the fashion show, meaning the eager punters weren’t able to actually buy as much of the clothing as the organisers hoped, as the credit card machines went offline. Anyone in Bath on Sunday (today, 9 October) can grab the chance to go to the last day of the selling exhibition and buy a small piece of unique design history.
