Shrewsbury School

£3000 raised for charity on the catwalk

Friday 10 October 2014

A report by Mrs Drew on the hugely successful Sixth Form Fashion Show.

A fantastic Fashion Show took place at Shrewsbury School on Saturday night.  There were clothes from Jaeger, modelled by Sixth Formers from the School, and also by those who work in the Shrewsbury branch.  There was jewellery by Boodles, and menswear from, among others, Harry Mundy, who was a boy at the school himself and is now established on Savile Row as a clothes designer.

The evening included canapés with Tanners’ Cava, a musical interlude and a raffle.

The entire event was organised by two members of the Sixth Form, Georgia Bruce and Miranda Woods. Georgia was delighted with the support that local shops and businesses had given, while Miranda was pleased to introduce her own grandmother, Jean Woods, who was featured in Channel 4’s documentary 'Fabulous Fashionistas'. 

The models are all currently studying for their A levels and tackled the catwalk with great panache, introduced by Siobhan Connor, who has worked with Comic Relief, so was ideal for this charity event.
The charities which benefited were Ethiopiaid, which provides healthcare and education to the poorest in Ethiopia, and The Brain Tumour Charity.  

Photos from the Fashion Show will be published on the website soon.
