The inaugural Shear Fashion show promises to showcase the versatility of wool from farm to catwalk during the Golden Shears shearing competition.

Using the Miss Wairarapa contestants, local club rugby players and shearers for models ensures a unique local flavour.

The event, on Thursday, February 28, adds a new attraction to the already successful Golden Shears calendar and is part of the new two- week-long Wairarapa-wide Shear Fest which starts on February 16.

"The event will appeal both to those interested in the shearing as well as attracting a new audience," says organiser Robyn Cherry- Campbell of Storm Productions.

Ms Cherry-Campbell is well known for her fashion events following the very successful and highly acclaimed Wairarapa Environmental Oversew Fashion Awards held last August.

"We are excited to have the Miss Wairarapa contestants in our modelling line up, prior to their final competition on Saturday, March 2. We also have some models you might not be expecting in a fashion show, but this is the Wairarapa," Ms Cherry- Campbell says.

"There will be clothing from underwear to farmwear to high fashion from local and well known national designers."

Storm Productions is working closely with the Golden Shears and the Campaign for Wool, whose patron is Prince Charles.

Tickets for the show are available from Dash Tickets. Website: www.shearfashion.co.nz. Updates on Facebook / Shear Fashion 2013.

Shear Fashion: Thursday, February 28, show starts 8pm, War Memorial Hall Masterton; $25 adult, $15 concession.
