Oxfam Boutique second birthday fashion show

Cardiff’s fashion elite came out in force to celebrate Oxfam Boutique’s second birthday last month and Chic & Cheerful was there to see it all.

Morgan Arcade was turned into a catwalk for the night to showcase some of the donations Oxfam has received in a fabulous vintage fashion show. Models strutted their stuff to a quirky soundtrack,wearing outfits put together by Boutique staff. All of the garments featured were available in store (although judging by the enthusiasm of the attendees I'd be surprised if any are left now!).

After the show, guests were treated to wine, nibbles and the opportunity to have a chat with some of the ladies and gentlemen who had volunteered to model: one of whom confessed to Chic & Cheerful that she nearly walked down the catwalk the wrong way! Eek! But luckily not even nerves could stop this from being a well-choreographed and very successful birthday bash.

For vintage designer fashion, Oxfam Boutique is one of the best shops in Cardiff. The store sells donations from the very generous people of the city (thank goodness there are so many fashion followers in Cardiff!) so we get the best vintage right here in South Wales. If you haven’t popped in yet, visit for the very friendly staff and a great selection of clothes and accessories.
