The ecclesiastical event was a showcase of the latest designs of religious gowns in various colours, patterns, shapes and textures.
Several priests acted as 'models' to strut the cat walk in front of hundreds of clergy at the exhibition .
One model, The Rev James Hutchings, said: "I've done nothing like this before. It has certainly caused lots of laughs in the parish. "My children thought it was hilarious. They probably won't ask me back. My pirouette was terrible."

That is so gay.
Lutherans are definitely not CoE and nothing like the Episcopal church of America.And believe it or not, there is no real surge in the Roman church either. More the shame, Americans seem to be abandoning their faith based institutions for a variety of reasons
"They are not as willing to put up with dirty, worn-out robes. I think this has rubbed off on male clergy."
A nickel for your thoughts ... where does it go from here?
I’ve been given to understand that in Rome it’s very important for Priests to look good too. But, at least they’re really priests.
I visited a parish church in England that was built in the 12th century. My friend’s father helped install electric lights in it back in the 1950s. They still had no plumbing, but a rather nice perma-portapotty in the back.
They have a chasuble dating back to before the apostate Henry VIII, as well as a paten that he wasn’t able to steal, as he stole most of the rest of the gold from the churches.
At any rate, it’s no dirty worn out robe, that’s for sure.
