Showing Off Vanilla Fudge’s Latest Lingerie

21 Feb 2018

On Tuesday 20th February, local luxury lingerie, swimwear and leg wear retailer Vanilla Fudge hosted their charity ‘Pizza & Lingerie’ evening at Mercato Italiano. To host this ticketed event, the team at Mercato made changes to the layout of the rear terrace restaurant to form an oval catwalk in the middle of the venue, allowing a parade of stunning girls and guys to showcase the latest lines.

The event was a sell-out success with a charitable cause at its heart; raising money to help local 20 year old Aeronautical engineering student Tom Watson recover from a broken back and neck. Proceeds will be put towards a much needed wheel chair and other vital equipment for this determined young man. The charity auction boasted a signed Manchester United shirt, as well as a cricket bat and Derby County shirt, signed by both Freddie Flintoff and Robbie Savage.

Mercato Italiano and Mercato Grill offer a variety of venue spaces and configurations for private and event hire, from birthdays and celebrations to fashion shows and corporate events. Please contact for more information.
