AN annual fashion show proved to be out of this world as students took to the catwalk for charity.

Students from The King’s Academy, Coulby Newham, paraded in the latest ball gowns and prom suits before a packed house of friends and family.

The extravaganza raised £644.90 for the academy’s adopted charities of Health & Hope, which works in western Myanmar, South East Asia, Butterwick Children’s Hospice and Nokuphila School in Tembisa, South Africa.

Assistant principal Carey Brownless, who hosted the event with head of year John Stewart, said: “We attach such importance to the support of charities which remains the driving force behind what is always a very enjoyable event.

“Everyone involved in staging the show works exceptionally hard and we are delighted to receive the support of our retailers who provide us with some stunning outfits to model.”

The Out of the World fashion show also featured performances by the BTEC dance group and dancers Alice Smailes and Megan Hanrahan.

Refreshments were provided by Friends of The King’s Parent Group while students studying GCSE design and technology showed off their textiles based around eco-wear, and A Level art and design students exhibited textiles inspired by the 20 th century.

Retailers included DC Couture, Menswear by Skopes, Destiny Bridal and Pressed Prom & Bridal, while Autograph Prestige added a touch more glamour to the red carpet by bringing a Lamborghini Spider to display.
