The King’s School young models staged their annual fashion show for The Christie, which celebrated the music of the Seventies, Eighties, Nineties, Noughties and their own decade with a record-breaking sell out event.

The event raised £4,500 as the students cruised down centre stage in front of a packed audience of 400 friends, parents, staff and family.

Organiser and Year 13 student Emily Underwood, who had been planning the show with fellow student Toby Sayle since September said: “One or two took easily to the cat walk, especially the ones who had done it before, but most of us were extremely nervous – well terrified actually.”

The theme was a homage to the cat walk hits of last 50 years with the teenagers choosing ‘Play that Funky Music’, ‘Funky Town’, ‘Mambo Number Five’, ‘Crazy in Love’ and ‘Up Town Funk’ to represent each decade.

The students would like to thank Sorella and SOS of Bramhall and the Attic Clothing Company, who graciously agreed their clothes could be auctioned off after the event which will further boost the funds for the charity.

Organiser Mr Jamie Macgregor, who is King’s Head of Economics, said: “The team showed resilience, dedication and great collaborative skills to make this a truly memorable event.”

King’s Fashion Shows have now raised around £50,000 over the last 10 years for the region’s leading cancer centre.
