Pupils, staff and parents created innovative outfits by upcycling old clothes and using recycled packaging. Our runway also showcased handmade garments and outfits sourced from secondhand stores and sustainable fashion labels. Teachers and pupils modelled outfits to a projected backdrop of Paris couture fashion which had been made for the fashion house, Pierre Balmain, by a pupil’s grandmother.
Also we were delighted to host a local charity at our event called The Cowshed. They take donations of clothing and textiles to give to individuals and families experiencing hardship. They also upcycle all damaged textiles in their craft group, making new products to sell and raise money for the charity.
