It also has a thriving online community where Simply Ladies members can seek support and advice from other women in the city.
Carron said: “As women, we’re often very good at taking care of other people but neglect ourselves. After going through a difficult time in my own life, I wanted to create something that had the potential to make women feel great about themselves. Alongside the local offers and discounts Simply Ladies members can access, they also have the support of the wider community, through events like the fashion show.
“The fashion show is all about revolutionising the way that we see fashion, bringing awareness to brands that is for everyone! Which is empowering women, regardless of their situation, age or size. There will be women from all walks of life on our catwalk and we’ll be sharing their stories as they strut their stuff in some stunning outfits from our local designers. The event will be a real celebration of all women and I hope our guest leave feeling supported and inspired by each other.”
