Frock Club Coming to Deepwater!

22nd Mar 2019

Who doesn’t speak ‘Frock’?

Fashion is indeed a universal language and the award-winning* Frock Club fashion program is coming to Deepwater on 4 April 2019.

Frock Club co-founder and co-ordinator, Ruth Povall said “Late last year, Frock Club raised funds to help out drought-affected communities.”

“Based on the warm reception and success of Frock Club in our home town of Alstonville, we soon realised that the best use of this money was to take Frock Club on the road and deliver it free of charge to drought-affected communities in 2019.”

“Frock Club offers a unique opportunity for fashion lovers to momentarily put their cares to one side and spend the morning in fun, fashion and fellowship. We’re hoping it will come as a welcome relief to the daily realities of drought and put a spring back into people’s steps.”

Deepwater is first cab off the rank.

“We’re excited that we have received support from all three levels of government to host Frock Club in Deepwater,” Ruth said. “Local community organisations, crossing over from primary industries into the arts, have also been quick to back the initiative.”

• The session will examine:
- Issues facing the fashion industry and the public alike, such as:
o Clothes fitting incorrectly
o The fast fashion phenomenon / environmental (un)sustainability
o STEM studies’ connection to fashion

- As a counterpoint, we’ll then look at fashion between the wars … an incredibly innovative and exciting period for fashion

- Tips on styling will also be presented, as well as an opportunity to try on vintage garments and hats

• Thursday 4th April 8.45 am for 9.00 start – 12.00 noon

• Deepwater School of Arts Hall, Tenterfield St, DEEPWATER 2371

• Cost: No charge to drought affected Frockers; country style morning tea provided
