Charity committee members, volunteers and friends stepped out on the catwalk recently when the Çalış based children’s charity staged its first ever fashion show of pre-loved and pre-owned summer stock from its popular charity shop.

The hour-long fashion show, held to launch the shop’s spring and summer range, was watched by over 200 people at the charity’s Spring Coffee morning and Bring and Buy Sale at the Ceren hotel on Çalış seafront.

Compared by 3C’s style guru “Gok Wan” Rimms, the female and male models showed off a wide range of casual and smart day-wear outfits as well as glamorous evening wear.

The collection finaled with wedding outfits and a designer wedding dress.


Supermodels Kate Moss and Cindy Crawford watch out – the 3C’s catwalk models are giving you a run for your money!

All of the garments and accessories which have been donated to the charity went on sale the following day at the 3C’s charity shop located at the Eyna restaurant on Çalış promenade.


The coffee morning was a huge success with homemade cakes and pastries flying off the stall like proverbial “hot cakes” along with jewellery, “beanie babies” and other gift items.

The coffee morning raised a total of 2,042 TL to help fund children’s projects in the Çalış/Fethiye area.

“What a fabulous day!!! and what a fantastic turnout” said 3C’s committee member and model Barbara McCauley

“It all went off without a hitch and made all the hard work and planning worth it.”!

“A huge thanks to everyone who slaved over a hot stove and baked some amazing cakes and pastries. The whole lot went so they must have been good! Also big thanks to Orhan and the staff at the Ceren hotel. As a team we all had great fun and hope all the folk that came enjoyed the day”
