We’re proud to be supporting the Brave Girl Vein Girl fashion show in aid of Something to Look Forward to on 4th & 5th October. Join us on the night for fashion, an art auction and DJs, all in aid of a great cause!
This Breast Cancer Awareness Month (October 2023) cancer survivor and artist Sharon Bennett will host a charity fashion show presenting six t-shirts she designed during her own cancer treatment. The tees celebrate the strength of spirit of women experiencing cancer. 69b will be providing other clothes and accessories from the Autumn Winter collection for the show.
Each t-shirt will be modelled by a survivor of breast cancer, who as a collective have had over 30 rounds of chemotherapy between them. Many of these women lost their hair, and all felt a change in their sense of self. This fashion show is a statement of rebellion and owning the experience of cancer.
Join Us at the Fashion Show
The shows will take place on 4th and 5th October at
30 Prescot Street
Tickets are £20, with all proceeds going to Something To Look Forward To who supported Sharon during her cancer journey.

Sharon’s art is deceptively vibrant and playful, with darker undertones and references. Follow her on Instagram @sharon.bennett1969
