Walking the Runway for Changemakers

This year’s highly anticipated charity Fashion Show was a stand-out evening of entertainment featuring a cast of models from the Fourth Form upwards from eleven different Houses.

The organising team, Phoebe Hornor (W), Tilly Salmon (W), Poppy Chatterton (W) and Georgie Pringle (W) partnered with six fashion brands including Religion, Brora and La Llama, and programmed their show into themes from grunge to black tie. 

Together with the Porters and Mr Pettitt on tech, the team transformed the Chapel with a theatrically lit raised runway extending down the central aisle.

Each model pairing strutted the walkway with tight and usually amusing choreography, displaying remarkable flair and confidence before a cheering audience.

In between the walks, while the models went backstage to change, musicians took the stage, including Sophie Lee and Declan Boyle (L), Phoebe Gammell (K), and an unexpected duet of Miss Dawes and Mr Barnes impressing the audience with “Diamonds on the soles of her shoes”. The final walk section featured a cast of teachers showcasing their “signature looks” to the audience’s immense enjoyment.

The evening raised over £7400 for Changemakers, a new summer programme that the pupils will be participating in to provide a week of outdoor experiences in Derbyshire for children from Peterborough schools.
