Students step up and show they have a real passion for fashion

Waiting for Video...

Students from Arnold King Edward Queen Mary School strutted their stuff on the catwalk to show off the latest spring/summer 2014 looks from high street giant Debenhams.

The special event took place at the store, based in the Houndshill Shopping Centre, in Blackpool.

The night included a performance by Blackpool singer Emily Adams, who recently reached the quarter finals of TV talent show The Voice.

There were discounts and concessions throughout the department store for the night, and exclusive shopping. There was also a DJ, raffle and penalty shoot-out.

The event, which saw 60 school pupils and eight teachers take part, was held to raise money to support a boys’ rugby tour to South Africa and a girls’ hockey tour to Australia, taking place later in the year. The tours will be funded by parents, but pupils were challenged to raise funds to support them.

Katie Mitchell, personal shopper at Debenhams Blackpool, said: “The event was very exciting to plan and working alongside such a credible school was a great experience.

“The night was packed full of events, including a fashion show showcasing Debenhams latest trends.”

Jim Keefe, AKS head teacher, said: “We are grateful to Debenhams for supporting this exciting family event and supporting our rugby and hockey players in their fundraising efforts.”
