Springwood students strut their stuff at annual fashion show
A West Norfolk school held its fourth annual fashion show on Tuesday with outfits and accessories made by sixth form students.
Springwood High School’s year 12 and 13 students designed, created and styled outfits in this year’s fashion show, which showed off some “creative and flamboyant designs”.
Course leader of BTEC Fashion, Emma Markwell said this year’s show was a “huge success” and enabled students to use the school’s new technology to create “unique and stylish” garments.
She said: “I am very proud of all the year 12 and 13 designers and the models who have volunteered their time.
“The great thing about this show is it brings so many students and staff together.
“This year we had students from Hair and Beauty styling the models’ hair and make up. A-Level Media Studies students filmed the show and staff from the Design and Technology and Art department were busy behind the scenes helping everything run smoothly.”
The show kicked-off with music from sister-duo Georgia and Maddie Dawson, and models only had one-day to rehearse the catwalk before owning the runway.
Among the audience of students, parents, grandparents, friends and siblings who watched the show were guests of honour borough mayor Nick Daubney, and his wife, Cheryl, as well as headteacher Andrew Johnson.
Miss Markwell added: “I was proud of this year’s show due to the creativity and flamboyance of the students’ designs and creations.
“Their use of modern technology such as the school’s laser cutting machine to create embellishments, surface decoration and fabric manipulation made the garments unique and stylish.
“The models only had a day to rehearse the catwalk routine but by the end of the show were total professionals, owning the runway with sass and confidence. Hopefully the show will encourage more students to study fashion.”
