Pupils from the West Grantham Academy St Hugh’s performed their sell-out final catwalk show at the Drill Hall in Lincoln.
The Sew into Fashion Show is an exciting event run by CfBT Educational Services, working in partnership with Lincolnshire County Council.
It is sponsored by Janome Sewing Machines and Selvedge magazine, and is the culmination of the fashion academy programme which supports students across the county with an interest in textiles and fashion.
A hundred fashion academy students from 10 Lincolnshire primary and secondary schools modelled the garments and hats they had designed and made over the last year.
During the show, as well as catwalk presentations there was an awards ceremony where the academy won the couture award and received a sewing machine for use in the school.
Two West Grantham Academy St Hugh’s pupils were nominated for the young designers award judged by Maureen Cook from Debenhams – Samantha Hardy won first prize with her sketchbook and jacket design, and second prize went to Chloe Wood for her graffiti inspired jacket.
Feedback from parents, family members and friends was positive, and students came off of the catwalk looking forward to applying for next year’s show.
