Local modelling agency hits the catwalk for a cure

A ROCKHAMPTON fashion show put its best foot forward on the weekend to help raise funds for cancer research.

The 2018 Pretty In Pink Runway saw a number of local models hit the catwalk for the good cause in association with Pretty In Pink High Tea Fundraiser.

The event was a huge hit, with all tickets sold out prior to the day.

The fundraiser, hosted by Rocky local Tammy Dorsett and one of her organisers Julie Way saw the region's best talent short-listed for the runway.

"Elite Avenue Modelling Academy & Agency is Rockhampton's leading modelling and deportment training Academy,” Elite Avenue director Louisa Bradley said.

"They have been training on the regular to be able to bring such a showcase on the runway to the locals of Rockhampton for the second year running.”

Next year's event is expected to be even more successful.
