Leighton Buzzard ladies are signing up to a local boutique owner’s Real Women Campaign and a fashion show on Friday, October 24.

Rosa Cristini owns soyou boutique, at the First Floor, The Green House, in Market Square. She is organising a fashion show with a difference as part of her mission to help women get the correct fashion for their own body type.

“I’m fed up with the way women’s fashion is dominated by size zero models when not all women have that body shape,” said Rosa. “Shock, horror, women have babies and have all kinds of body shapes but that isn’t represented in the fashion media.”

Rosa has invited customers and members of the community to take part in a fashion show on Friday, October 24 at The Green House tea rooms and wine bar.

She said: “The women of Leighton Buzzard, all ages and shapes and sizes want to be a part of the campaign,” said Rosa. “The fashion show is going to be a joyous celebration of the beautiful women of Leighton Buzzard and maybe, just maybe, the start of something really important in the Real Women Campaign!”

Doors open for the fashion show at 7.30pm. There will be live music and the event will rase money for ABF The Soldiers’ Charity. Proceeds from the £20 tickets will go to the charity.

Following the fashion show, soyou boutique will be open from 9-10pm for customers to look at the Christmas range and make purchases or orders.

For tickets the public should contact soyou on 07721 038823, by email or visit
