Past Present Futures charity shop’s fashion show shines again

Posted: November 20, 2023

Past Present Futures boutique charity shop delighted the local community once more with the return of its annual fashion show, Putting on the Glitz 2, held last Sunday at the Woodlands Hotel in Broughty Ferry. The event, back by popular demand after the success of its inaugural year, drew over 140 attendees eager to experience an afternoon of fashion, entertainment and fundraising.

The event showcased a range of outfits from the shop’s latest donated stock through a runway show of volunteer models. Attendees also had the chance to explore a pop-up shop featuring unique finds from Past Present Futures.

The fashion show featured live music from local singer Brooke Coventry, and attendees had the opportunity to win fantastic prizes donated by local businesses in a raffle.


Past Present Futures’ shop manager Tricia Perrie, who was involved in organising the event, commented: “Putting on the Glitz 2 surpassed our expectations, and we are thrilled to see the community’s enthusiasm for sustainable fashion. I’d like to give a huge thank you to our loyal customers and dedicated volunteers who continue to support our shop and make events like this possible.

“A special mention goes to local businesses BeeWax, Prego, Tiger Lily Boutique, McNicoll and Cairnie, Bella Mella, Meraki, Our Little House, Hair by John Duncan and Paper Kisses who kindly donated prizes for our raffle, and to the Woodlands Hotel and Winter and Simpson Print for supporting this event.”

The highlight of the afternoon was not just the celebration of pre-loved fashion but also the spirit of giving. Putting on the Glitz 2 was a charity fundraiser raising £3,203 for Hillcrest Futures, a Scottish charity supporting people with additional needs to live independent and vibrant lives.

Hillcrest’s chief executive, Angela Linton said: “We are extremely grateful for the generosity of everyone who attended the fashion show. The funds raised will go to Hillcrest Futures to provide vital support to vulnerable individuals with a range of needs including physical and learning disabilities, autism, young people and older people. Further services include supporting positive mental health and wellbeing, homelessness and drug, alcohol and recovery services.”

Past Present Futures is a boutique charity shop selling a range of high quality yet affordable pre-owned clothing, jewellery, handbags, home accessories and more. The shop is located at 104 Gray Street in Broughty Ferry and is open Monday to Saturday from 10am till 4pm.
