An Isle of Wight artist, comedian, and social commentator is launching a collection of upcycled fashion.

Ryde's Donna Jones will release a new collection on April 27.

Known for her unique and outlandish fashion creations, Ms Jones has been hard at work throughout the winter sewing together costumes from 85 donated jackets.

A total of 31 models aged between six and 82 will showcase the new collection.

Donna's creations will be available for a donation of £25, with proceeds going to the Isle of Wight Pop Up Soup Kitchen.

She said: "I am passionate about developing women's confidence through upcycling clothes.

"Why be ordinary, when you can be extraordinary?

"Fashion is for everyone - style is for the individual.

"The theme of the event is Paris in the Springtime, so think Moulin Rouge and colour.

"My challenge to everyone who comes this year is to wear the brightest colours you can - let's light up the room!"

The event is taking place at The Depozitory, Nelson Street, Ryde, with guests encouraged to bring their own drinks and snacks.

Entry is £7 on the door, with live music from Clear the Beach.
