    Bath Rugby players help promote Sport and Fashion exhibition

    Bath Rugby players help promote Sport and Fashion exhibition

    Three Bath Rugby players have taken the time to promote the city's upcoming Sport and Fashion exhibition.

    Francois Louw, Matt Carraro and Nathan Catt were the stars of an interesting photoshoot, which shows the players trying to tackle a model wearing a dress made entirely of rugby jumpers.  

    The exhibition, which features over 50 pieces of unique sporting fashion, begins on February 4th.

    In an interview with thisisbath.co.uk, Bath Rugby's player liaison manager, Ed Williams, said that the club jumped at the chance to get involved with it.

    He said: "When we were approached by Bath & North East Somerset Council to see if Bath Rugby would like to get involved in the Sport and Fashion exhibition there was absolutely no doubt in our mind that we wanted to be part of it.

    "The City of Bath is steeped in sporting tradition and through the ages has been a centre of fashion excellence in the South West which has helped really put Bath on the map as a cultural hub."

    According to visitbath.co.uk, other items appearing at the exhibition include a series of tennis wear from the 1920s, Victorian century riding garments and Amy Williams' famous 2010 Winter Olympics catsuit.

    The rugby shirt dress appearing in the new advert will also be on display.
