A CATWALK provided young people with a chance to be model students as they staged a spectacular fashion show for charity.

Students strutted their stuff before a packed house at The King’s Academy, Coulby Newham, raising hundreds of pounds for good causes.

The annual two-hour extravaganza featured the latest collections supplied by local stores, ranging from stunning prom gowns to urban t-shirts.

Former student Connor Busby revealed his Conflict BCB designs while GCSE design technology students from The King’s Academy showed work influenced by the 20th century and eco-wear.

More than £1,200 was raised for the academy’s three chosen charities – The Butterwick Children Hospice, The Great North Air Ambulance and Uhuru Ministries charity, which helps orphans in Kenya.

Assistant vice principal Carey Brownless aid: “The annual fashion show has grown into an event that students, families and friends really look forward to. It was another fabulous turnout, supported by local retailers, and the students again put on an amazing show.”

Themed Pretty in Pink, the fashion show featured the latest designs from Joanne-Kay Bridal and Prom Wear, Stokesley, Joi, Middlesbrough, Euphoria Boutique, Yarm, Kinu by Leigh Millward, Bakers Tailoring, both Middlesbrough, and personalised bags by King’s Pins Enterprises.

The Year 10 BTEC Dance Group and the KS3 Street Dance Group provided the entertainment and refreshments were served by the Friends of the King’s parents’ group.

Mrs Brownless added: “The event is such a thrill for students as they are able to model some incredible clothes and also show off their own designs in a very professional and inspirational setting.”
