Fashion Inspired by Everything Foodie – Charity Fashion Show
The Art Department and Reps were excited to host the return of The Sixth Form Charity Fashion Show on March 30th after a two year gap due to Covid.
Art Reps Georgia F and Saira B organised the whole evening of fashion, which included four amazing catwalks to music on a wonderful set inspired by Andy Warhol’s Iconic Pop Art Food images.
The first catwalk focused on the competition entries from students. The competition, which followed the theme of “fashion inspired by everything foodie,” was judged by alumna and founder of MERRI Intimates, Ella Merriman. We were delighted to see so many fantastic entries, particularly from Year 7-9 students.
Our overall winners were Nairi C in 9G for her magical mushroom creation and Maddy H in 8D and Coco J in 8S for their salt dress.
Creative winner of unique use of materials went to Hannah P in 9D for her creative corset created from sweet packaging. Special mentions go to Sofia A in 9D for her exquisite hand embroidery on a denim jacket and Frankie S in 7S for her imaginative geometric hat inspired by Vita Coco Drinks packaging. Well done to everyone taking part!
Our remaining catwalks all featured art by Year 9. The first, Year 9’s Fruit Cell Repeat Patterns, was inspired by Alexander McQueen, the second by another Year 9 group showing silk scarfs inspired by Hermes and iconic food symbols with the third Year 9 class displaying clothing created from food packaging. There was also an art display in the atrium of the Year 9 work.
All profits from the event will be donated to the charity we are supporting; The Felix Project. The Felix Project collects fresh, nutritious food that cannot be sold and delivers this surplus food to charities and schools so they can provide healthy meals and help the most vulnerable in our society.
A big thank you to all the Art teachers, Art technician Shuk, Drama Technician Jo, the caretaking team and our judge, Ella Merriman.
