Wedding gowns from the last 100 years are to be showcased by one man who had a hand in creating one of the most iconic dresses ever seen. Kevin Thornhill worked alongside dress designers David and Elizabeth Emmanuel to create Diana, Princess of Wales’, wedding dress in 1981. On Thursday, 11th April, he will host a Fashion Show with a difference “A Century of Wedding Gowns” – with all profits going towards the Bishop Auckland Scanner Appeal. Kevin will tell the story of each of the original period pieces from the late 1800s through to the modern day as his models walk down the catwalk at Shildon Civic Hall from 7.15pm onwards. Organised by Shildon and District Flower Club, tickets are priced at £10 and include a glass of Prosecco and canapes. Tickets, which must be pre-booked, are available from Cynthia Scott (01325) 313055 and Pauline Wadge (01388) 417145.
