A FASHION show, organised by one teenager to help raise funds for a Cirencester children’s charity, saw students from Cirencester College strutting their stuff and striking an elaborate pose.

Students taking part in the show on Friday, January 10, that was put together by 17-year-old art student Hannah Carter, modeled a range of outfits that had been supplied by Helen and Douglas House.

Hannah said: “I wanted the show to be about sustainable fashion and to show students that fashion doesn’t have to just come from famous designers and high street shops.”

The 17-year-old is one of three Cirencester College students currently working towards a Gold Arts Award with the support of the town’s New Brewery Arts.

As part of the leadership component of the award, Hannah took on the responsibilities of producing and staging the fashion show.

The award has been set up to develop young people’s creativity, communication, planning teamwork and leadership skills.

She said: “The award has given so much help in preparing me for the art sector. I have really enjoyed doing this award and have learned many skills including planning, public speaking and working as part of a team.”

Hannah Brady, of New Brewery Arts, said the Gold Arts Award is “crucial” for developing talent and nurturing creativity.

She said: “Hannah Carter’s fashion show demonstrates her strong leadership skills, creative flare and clear commitment to the scheme.”

The outfits worn during the show were available to buy afterwards with all the money being donated to Helen and Douglas House.
