PRESS RELEASE AND PHOTOCALL


DESIGNER KICKS OFF WITH FOOTBALL FASHION…

A fashion designer who is defying a red card ban from some of the country’s top soccer clubs will be unveiling her football inspired collection in the North East next week.

Avante garde designer Angy Morton has created a whole range of fantasy evening wear using the soccer strips of some of the UK’s top teams.
And while some have given her the go-ahead to show her collection, others have forbidden her to use their branding and logo.
But Angy, from Cumbria, is determined to show her “Stolen Dreams” dresses as planned and will unveil them at a catwalk event being held at Newcastle’s Eldon Gardens on Thursday (November 12).
“Stolen Dreams is a unique fusion of fashion and football which has been inspired by the ups and downs of top flight football,” she said.
“This is an artistic collection. All of my outfits are unique, one-off designs created to raise my profile as a new designer and awareness of my rather unusual creativity.
“They are not intended for sale.”
North East teams such as Sunderland and Newcastle have given Angy their blessing as have leading sportswear manufacturers Umbro but she’s had a resounding no from Chelsea and Liverpool who have said she can’t use their logo or trademark – despite the fact that the dresses are not for sale.
But Angy has come up with a unique way to beat the ban – and now intends to make some minor alterations to ensure these one-off pieces can take to the catwalk.

NOTE TO NEWS DESKS/PICTURE DESKS/CAMERA CREWS
YOU ARE INVITED TO A PHOTOCALL ON MONDAY NOVEMBER 9 WHEN TWO MODELS WILL WEAR THE SUNDERLAND AFC AND NEWCASTLE UNITED FC DRESSES.
VENUE – OUTSIDE SHEARER’S BAR, ST JAMES PARK, NEWCASTLE UPON TYNE
TIME – 10.30 am
ANGY MORTON WILL ALSO BE PRESENT AND AVAILABLE FOR INTERVIEW.
