100 students take to catwalk for Canvey school fashion show
More than 100 students at Cornelius Vermuyden School in Dinant Avenue, Canvey, took to the catwalk for their first ever fashion show.
MORE than 100 students took centre-stage on the catwalk.
The first ever fashion show at Cornelius Vermuyden School in Dinant Avenue, Canvey, saw a number of departments come together for the extravaganza.
Canapes were provided by the food department, budding artists created unique designs to decorate onesies, and technology students showed how sustainable materials can be used in fashion.
Katy Hibben, head of art and design at Cornelius Vermuyden, said: “The pupils absolutely loved it. You put beautiful clothes on them instead of their school uniform and it’s amazing to see how they grow up ten years.
“Our audience was jam-packed with nearly 300 people, and the tickets sold out straight away. We will definitely be doing something like this again- I don’t think the kids will let us not!”
Boys and girls from Year 7 to Year 11 got involved with the event by creating items for the catwalk or modelling them.
Mrs Hibben added: “As we’ve just had London fashion week we wanted to do something to raise the profile of fashion and design in our school. We went on a school trip to the Clothes Show in Birmingham so the students have all been to fashion shows but this time they actually got to star in one.
“We’ve also got the end of year prom coming up which is a really big celebration for us, so this was a build up to that.
“It was a fantastic evening. It was about raising pupils aspirations, and we always try to work with higher education centres to build relationships for our pupils.”
