Work on choreography, sponsorship, the clothing collection, publicity, construction of the set and ticket sales began before the summer holidays, and the show, directed entirely by pupils,
raised over 5,000 for Barnardos and diabetes charity JDRF.
The catwalk spectacular, entitled Sugar Rush, featured the sweetest fashions of the year as the shows three compres combined with the schools Eco Warriors and wore outfits made entirely of sweet wrappers and packets collected in school.
The models, drawn from Withingtons Fourth to Upper Sixth Forms supported by boys from Manchester Grammar School - strutted their polished choreography in style and sported
sumptuous clothes loaned by supportive retailers. The main sponsor was Beaverbrooks and clothes were loaned by Xpose, Someone Elses Wardrobe, Heavenly Way to Dye, AX Paris, Forever Unique, JDRF, Bar Code, Missguided, Internacionale, Urban Edge, Boohoo.com,
SOS and Vicky Martin.
Mrs Fabiola Cotton, Withingtons Head of Design Technology, said: It was the best range of clothes we have ever shown: a very diverse collection from quite expensive couture to secondhand and recycled outfits. The way the girls arranged the show, it all fitted together
The show ended with an explosive finale of pink and white confetti fired from eight confetti cannons!
