Students stepping out in style


The annual fashion show held at Concord College was as spectacular as ever, as Peter Love explains.

Dreams and Nightmares’ was the theme of the fifth annual fashion show to be staged by students at Concord College.
The sell-out show, held in the theatre at the Acton Burnell complex, featured clothes designed by students studying for GCSE, AS or A-level art. The designs will form part of the students’ course work.

More than 30 models wore a spectacular range of creative designs produced by 20 designers. The clothes were made out of a variety of fabrics and materials, from silk to art straws and mirrors. Some were soft and flowing, others structural and dramatic. All were modelled by the student designers themselves, or their friends.

Prizes were awarded for the best designs which added a competitive element to the show. There were awards for the best ‘Dreams and Nightmares’ designs from both the lower school and sixth form. In addition, there were prizes for the best lower school designer and models (GCSE) and best sixth form designer and models.
