We at Celtic Curves had the pleasure of walking along side many fantastic models for the 2nd Annual Live Out Loud Charity Fashion Show on June 25th in the Tower Hotel, Co Waterford.
“Sherrie Gearheart founded Live Out Loud Charity (LOLC) in 2010 after losing her childhood friend to suicide. He was only nineteen years old at the time of his death. Since its inception, LOLC has educated millions of individuals globally on the signs of depression and suicide prevention. Live Out Loud Charity focuses on core character development, anti bullying, and suicide prevention.”
A few thank you's from the Celtic Curves ladies and our Mini Celtic Curves (our children)
that also had the pleasure of being in the show! First, the LOLC, Jade, Rebecca and Sherrie for putting together such a wonderful show. Shirley Watson for helping backstage with changes, and our very own Fiona for organising the plus size clothes, I think it’s the first show we have done as the plus size models that there was a range of clothes to fit us.
And obviously, all the designers (Trail by Georgina and Elaine Honey Designs) and shops Lumy by Paris, Curvy Gurl Portlaoise, for providing such fabulous outfits!
The hair and makeup ladies (Leah McCahey and Hannah Troy) for being absolutely fantastic and for keeping everyone fabulous all day. They did not stop - total super women!!
There was amazing organisation and team spirit about the whole day, and backstage was the calmest atmosphere I think we have ever had at a show, and it allowed everyone to enjoy themselves!! Emma and Jade's inspiring and heart wrenching speeches were amazing, yous are extremely strong women! The atmosphere and the support between the models and designers continued to keep up momentum even with a small crowd we all sat out and cheered each other on!
Lastly all the models, who without there would have been no show! Amazing work by everyone! But we have to say an even bigger, more special well done to the kids. The younger ones did a show stopping job! They practiced all day and the gave all us older ones a run for our money! They kept up the momentum and smiled right through the night! The crowd loved them!!
If we have forgotten anyone apologies but a huge well done and congratulations to everyone who organised/helped out/modelled/designed - You all did a wonderful job and we will hopefully see you all again in February.
There is not one person or family who has not been touched by mental health problems or suicide. on that day, we remembered all the loved ones that we have lost. Mental health awareness and suicide still has a negative stigma attached to it here in Ireland. This show allowed a positive enhancement on how prevalent it is here, while showing how we as individuals can help. We sincerely hope this charity continues to grow in support in Ireland and all of us at Celtic Curves will support their goals 100%. Thank you for allowing us to be part of a truly generous cause and wonderful show xx
