Meet our models #5: Maxine Macpherson #hospice #fashion #show

wirral_hospice_fashion_show_maxine_elle_macphersonFacilities Administrator, Maxine Ashton, will be strutting her stuff along with all our other models at our fashion show with a twist on tonight.  This afternoon she took the time to answer the questions put to some of our other Hospice Supermodels earlier this week.

What are you most looking forward to on the night?

Ok, small spoiler here, but I’m looking forward to my Halloween outfit, my son was born on Halloween and we take Halloween very seriously at Ashton HQ.

Do you know what you are going to be wearing?

Unfortunately I haven’t seen anything yet, but I have heard about some of the themes and outfits on show and I am very intrigued!

Our models are all members of hospice staff – who do you think is your greatest competition?

Hang on I didn’t realise this was a competition – eep!

What are you most nervous about?

Falling over in my heels – it’s a worry that’s keeping me up at night.

How are you preparing for the night?

I’ve been timing myself getting dressed – got to prepare for those quick changes between outfits.

What music are you hoping will play when you debut on the catwalk?

I would love something a bit different, you know.. Slipknot or Metallica, something like that would be good.

What are you demanding for your dressing room?

Yes I know, its very divalike, but if everything could be left hand friendly that would be perfect.

Have you perfected your autograph yet, you are going to need it?

No, not yet – I’ll get practising soon!

Finally what do you think of the likeness that has been drawn between yourself and Elle Macpherson?

Er… I’m very flattered, but there’s not much!


 If you want to see Maxine and the rest of our models strut their stuff at Heswall Hall on Friday 26th September, call 0151 343 0788 or visit one of our Hospice Charity Shops to buy your tickets.

Meet our models #4: Teresa Moss #hospice #fashion #show

wirral_hospice_fashion_show_teresa_kate_mossOur fourth Hospice Supermodel to share her thoughts about Friday’s fashion show is Teresa Nightingale – Head of Fundraising who can’t wait to get out there onto the catwalk.

What are you most looking forward to on the night?

I’m really looking forward to falling over in front of all those people… it’s going to be amazing… really.

Do you know what you are going to be wearing?

No idea, the descriptions I have heard have already terrified me

Our models are all members of hospice staff – who do you think is your greatest competition?

If I’m honest, all of them, they are all at least 3 ½ feet taller than me.

What are you most nervous about?

I’m really nervous about not walking in time to the music, it will be so cringy if I am out of sync.

How are you preparing for the night?

I will be staying up until 3am the night before, just like all real supermodels do.

What music are you hoping will play when you debut on the catwalk?

I don’t know about what I hope they’ll play – it just better not be ‘Nelly the Elephant’!

What are you demanding for your dressing room?

Nando’s and some hunky male models – how else am I supposed to get ready?

Have you perfected your autograph yet? You are going to need it!

Of course I have, can’t be signing peoples t-shirts, autograph books etc. with a rubbish signature!

Finally what do you think of the likeness that has been drawn between yourself and Kate Moss?

I taught her all I know and that’s all I’m saying on the matter.

What are you most looking forward to on the night?

Donning my top hat, that is going to be amazing.

Do you know what you are going to be wearing?

I know what I am wearing on my bottom half… I haven’t been told about the top… that’s worrying me.

Our models are all members of hospice staff – who do you think is your greatest competition?

I think they are all effortless, it is going to be tough keeping up to their high standard

What are you most nervous about?

Falling over, I know everyone says it but definitely falling over.

How are you preparing for the night?

I’m popping on my super high heels all night every night, it’s been like I’ve been standing on a slope for weeks now.

What music are you hoping will play when you debut on the catwalk?

Something 70’s and funky, you know, like the Bee Gees.

 What are you demanding for your dressing room?

Chocolates, loads of chocolate and a hot masseuse for my poor feet afterwards.

Have you perfected your autograph yet?  You are going to need it!

No! I hadn’t thought of that – I’ll get practising.

Finally what do you think of the likeness that has been drawn between yourself and Helena Christensen?

Just one thing – I wish.

Meet our models #2: Hayley Schiffer #hospice #fashion #show

wirral_hospice_fashion_show_hayley_claudia_schifferNext up is Hayley Gough, Community & Events Manager at Wirral Hospice St John’s. Hayley will also be modelling at our ‘Battle of the charity shops’ fashion show. She is very excited about a couple of her themes and her ‘tribal pose’ is certainly going to be a highlight! Hayley took some time to share her thoughts on the upcoming show (after demanding a re-write that is).

What are you most looking forward to on the night?

I can’t wait for my sci-fi spot, I’m loving the sci-fi specs I’m going to wear!

Do you know what you are going to be wearing?

Yes I know. All I can tell you is a couple of the themes… Sci-fi and Tribal… it’s going to be very different…

Our models are all members of hospice staff – who do you think is your greatest competition?

I know that Evangelista will be bringing her A-game!

What are you most nervous about?

Nothing – I don’t get nerves… honest

How are you preparing for the night?

I have been getting in a lot of practice, I’ve been doing my sci-fi walk in the kitchen at  home, and practising my tribal face in the mirror in the mornings, I can’t wait!

What music are you hoping will play when you debut on the catwalk?

Barry Manilow, he’s my favourite and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

 What are you demanding for your dressing room?

Well, there are a few things I am going to need – nothing unreasonable like some of the other models though, all I need is sparkling water, marshmallows, fresh flowers and Bovril – nice and simple.

Have you perfected your autograph yet? You are going to need it!

Yes, naturally I am ready and poised with my pen.

Finally what do you think of the likeness that has been drawn between yourself and Claudia Schiffer?

No comment – Claudia and I haven’t spoken for years!

Hayley, without a doubt, Hayley – she has challenged us all to see who can strut the best – she’s got to be pretty confident!

How are you preparing for the night?

Don’t worry – there is no preparation needed.

What music are you hoping will play when you début on the catwalk?
