Canterbury College students get fashion fix

Thousands of clothes, shoes and accessories went on sale at Canterbury College’s fashion show to raise money for charity.

The Fashion Fix raised more than £300 for The British Red Cross, Pilgrims Hospice and The Children’s Trust Tadworth.

The catwalk show was followed by a giant indoor one stop charity shop, with raffle and tombola stalls.

The show featured contributions from several other College departments. Hair and beauty students designed the models’ hair and make-up and dance students warmed up the catwalk crowd with an energetic routine to music provided by the music department.

Julia Joslin, section manager for Business and ICT, said: “I’m really proud of the students for staging this year’s fashion show. They worked incredibly hard and it looks as though the Business Fashion Fix will become an annual fixture in the College calendar. The event has given them some fantastic skills that they will eventually take into the workplace.”
