FASHIONISTAS can look forward to a charity fashion show with a difference at a Southampton city centre hotel on Sunday, August 10.

Visitors to the Mercure Dolphin Hotel are invited to make up their own outfits with second-hand clothes from charity shops and raise some cash for Autism Hampshire.

There is no theme, so people can be as daring and creative as they wish, with a prize for the best outfit.

The event is from noon to 3pm and entries are welcome in three categories – under-12s, 12 to 18 years old, and adults.

Tickets cost £5. To book, email Iain Macdonald at
