The Apex is to host the return of Fashion Fusion, showcasing new and established retailers while raising vital charity funds.

The catwalk fashion event has raised more than £20,000 since it began in 2011 and is all set for a spectacular return.

All funds from the evening go to St Nicholas Hospice Care which supports people with long-term or life-shortening illnesses, as well as their families.

This year, 10 high-street and independent retailers from Bury St Edmunds will take part in the fashion show, which will also feature designs by students from West Suffolk College and also by those who use the hospice’s service.

Tickets for the event on May 5 are now on sale at 
The Apex with the 10 retailers to be revealed in the coming weeks.

“We are very excited to be hosting Fashion Fusion again,” said Cllr Joanna Rayner, St Edmundsbury Borough Council’s portfolio holder for leisure and culture.

“St Nicholas Hospice Care have secured 10 exciting retailers and the stage is set for a truly great evening.”

Apart from the fashion show, guests will also be able to view a selection of fashion and beauty related stalls on the night.

There will also be cocktails, refreshments and a prize raffle draw.

“Fashion Fusion is always a wonderful evening for the style-conscious and has raised thousands for us in the past,” said St Nicholas Hospice Care Fund-raiser Abby Mayes.

“Our thanks go to The Apex for hosting another event.”
