Hirsute men strut their fashion stuff
Nelson men have liberated their upper lips just in time for summer.
Movember was farewelled in style with the "Moustached Men on the Catwalk Fashion Show" at the Farmers Arcade on Saturday to celebrate the end of the month long challenge.
Men strutted Sidecar Menswear fashion on the catwalk. Free beer and nibbles supplied by Hangar 58 were on hand.
"The fashion show went really well - we had a range of models with some pretty good facial hair and some younger dudes with stick-on moustaches," said Sidecar Menswear owner Craig Fox.
Stormy's Man Cave Barber Shawn Stormann spoke about men's health "telling dudes to get checked out". He said there was a good turnout and the day went "beautifully". After the fashion show Stormy's Man Cave Barber was open for upper lip liberations.
At Hangar 58 on Friday evening winners of the Movember challenge were announced. Andrew Waddington from Morrison Street Cafe won overall with the "The Most Manly Moustache" prize. He said men's health was "the winner on the day".
"It actually came as quite a shock, but it was quite a lot of hard work for my upper lip to produce such a manly mo," said Mr Waddington.
Mr Waddigton thanked those who had sponsored him and "the rest of the growers at Morrison street cafe" where $400 was raised.
Hangar 58, Stormy's Man Cave, and Sidecar Menswear supported the region's men and their facial sprouting through November by putting on events, promoting awareness about men's health, and fundraising for the Nelson Hospice
Nearly $1000 was raised over the month for Nelson Hospice.
