Students walk of fashion for charity

June 13, 2014

Students at West Cheshire College are walking tall after staging a fashion show and raising more than £400 for charity.

The fashion show, a collaboration between Marks & Spencer Cheshire Oaks and the College, was organised to raise money for Guide Dogs for the Blind.

The event, which took place in the rotunda at the College’s Ellesmere Port Campus, involved more than 30 students, College staff, and M&S employees who all helped make the evening a success.

A mix of technical theatre, fashion retail and dance students lent a hand to ensure that the catwalk was lit and the models were styled according the M&S branding.

Beci Clark and Abby Harding, Visual Merchandisers for Marks & Spencer, contacted the College with the idea of organising the fashion show on behalf of the store’s chosen charity.

Beci Clark said: “The fashion show was a great success and it was very rewarding to see so many people come and support such a great cause.

“Abby and I were former students at the College between the years 2010-2012 and know how much they love to get involved with events such as this.

 “The fashion retail students did a great job in helping us to organise the event and we couldn’t have done it without them and their tutor, Jo Williams.”

The evening included a catwalk show, which showcased a selection of Marks & Spencer’s mens, womens and childrens clothing as well as a raffle with a selection of prizes up for grabs.

Maria Davison, Area Manager of Creative Arts at West Cheshire College, said: “The fashion show was a huge success and it’s great that so much money was raised.

“The students put so much effort into organising the event and it was great to see so many students from different courses get involved.”

Over the past financial year, the Marks & Spencer Cheshire Oaks store has raised an impressive £25,000 for Guide Dogs for the Blind.
