A PENARTH designer held a successful fashion show at the National Museum of Wales in Cardiff recently.

Nathan Palmer who runs Nathan Palmer Bespoke Tailors on Stanwell Road put on the show on Friday (December 8) in association with Sinclair Mercedes.

The show called This is Theatre involved 53 outfits which took nearly 2000 hours to make with more than three million stitches involved in the tailoring,

Ashley Charlton, one of the guests on the night, said: "What I liked most about the event was it was the clothes were modelled by such a varied cast.

"Everyone cheered Jordan Howe the paralympian on the catwalk and Phil Lay a distinguished gentleman.

"The outfits were spectacular I heard guests saying I would buy that, I would wear that. High end fashion for everyone."

Staff from Ener-chi which has a branch in Penarth held its Christmas party at the event.

One member of the team who attended said: "Totally awesome, exceeded all expectations and more."

Another guest Tom Simmonds said: "I never thought I would witness a fashion show like that outside of London. Nathan’s going to be very busy after this."

Andy Sinclair from Sinclair Mercedes said: "We were proud to be headline sponsors of This is Theatre and we cannot wait for Nathan’s 2018 Fashion show.

"Our relationship has been strengthened from the excellence of this event."

Three models from Vale of Glamorgan based Virgo People Models took part in the show.

Skyler, Sanchez Watt and Leila Omar were part of a thirty strong team showcasing the latest men’s and ladies wear designed by Nathan Palmer.

Virgo People CEO Hilary Brown said: "We are thrilled to have been part of what was an extremely glamorous and important event for this up and coming independent designer."
