Well, it’s not every day that us showgirls are asked to feature as catwalk models but that is certainly what happened last Sunday when we performed at the Robsinsons of Bawtry Fashion Show in aid of Yorkshire Cancer Research.
Julia got in contact with me a few months prior to the event explaining that every year they organise a big fashion show and charity event in Doncaster at the China Rose Restauraunt in Bawtry. This year they wanted to add some sparkle and glamour to the event and came across the Supreme Showgirls website when looking for Las Vegas Showgirl Dancers.
After chatting with Julia, she explained she would like the girls to meet and greet the guests on arrival, pose for photographs, hand out champagne and then perform 2 dance routines along the catwalk to wow all of the guests!
When we got there, we were whisked away to the Robinsons of Bawtry shop where we had to pose and model as customers for their upcoming advertisement. We really enjoyed this and it certainly made a change from wearing all of our feathers and sequins as we were in our normal day to day clothes! The Shop had some of the very best designer labels to include Armani, Versace… just to name a few… we were in Shopping Heaven! It was a shame we didn’t get chance to buy anything!
Once we had made our cameo on television, we were taken back to the dressing room to get ready to greet the guests at the entrance on the red carpet. The guests pulled up in limousines, range rovers and porsche’s just to name a few and out came the most glamorous men and women ready to party the night away. We loved taking photos with them as they came in, here’s just a few for you to see:-
Once all the guests were seated, the fashion show commenced. The professional catwalk models were absolutely stunning and showcased some of the most modern and latest looks, we definitely saw a few items that we would like to add to our wardrobe!
After the models finished the catwalk show it was time for us to take the stage. We performed 2 numbers, Viva Las Vegas and New York New York and it’s fair to say the crowd absolutely loved it, our red and gold costumes really sparkled under the spotlights and were certainly a talking point amongst the guests. They even spoke to us about hiring us again for the next year!
We are incredibly delighted with the fabulous footage that they filmed from the event and yes… that is our gorgeous girls at the beginning shopping in the beautiful Robinsons of Bawtry! Enjoy…
