DESIGNER women's wear and lingerie retailers De Novo and Private Collection raised over one thousand pounds for Queenscourt Hospice at Formby's fashion show of the year on Thursday night.  Retailers Lynne Taylor and Lauren McIntyre organised the event, which was attended by over 120 women and was held at The Lighthouse pub on Liverpool Road.  Twelve models showed off a stylish range of suede jackets, tailored trousers, denim clothing and evening dresses from De Novo clothing and a stunning collection of satin and oriental underwear and nightwear from Private Collection lingerie.  The women attending the event were treated to a complimentary gift bag and glass of white wine on arrival and a disco and raffle after the fashion show.   Lynne Taylor (above) is the owner of Private Collection on Furness Avenue, Formby.   She said:- "The night went unbelievably well, a lot better than we ever thought or expected it would. It's so rewarding to know that we've raised a thousand pounds for Queenscourt, I chose them as the charity through a personal experience as a relative of mine died there, it's such a lovely place and I always said that if I did a fashion show this year I would donate the money to them."  Lauren McIntyre (above) of De Novo on School Lane, Formby added:- "We didn't expect to raise over a thousand pounds and would have been more than pleased if we'd raised five hundred. This is the first show Lauren and I have organised together and we'd definitely like to do it again. All the models were friends of ours that did the show for charity and they were all fantastic. We're both so overwhelmed with the whole response and generosity of everybody involved."  Queencourt Hospice require three thousand pounds per day to run the rest home, two thirds of which needs to be raised by volunteers. Pat Miller is from the Formby support group for Queenscourt Hospice and was at the event.  She said:- "I thought the show was brilliant, we're so pleased to see young people coming in and supporting the hospice which I think is great. It was an excellent night, it had a lovely atmosphere and was so reasonable for seven pounds and the clothes were fantastic for a younger age group. I'd like to thank Lynne and Lauren for organising the event and inviting us as we thoroughly enjoyed it and the money will go to a wonderful cause and the patients will benefit enormously."  All the women that attended the event had the opportunity to buy the clothes and lingerie on display. Amy Davis was a guest at the show. She said:- "I thought the show went really well and all the models were fantastic, I'd like to go to the shops to see what they have got to offer as some of the things I saw looked really good."
