Sixth Form Pupils Stage Charity Fashion Show

Sustainability on Show

10th May 2022

On Thursday 5 May, an audience of over 300 gathered in Flint Court for Resilience 2022, a sustainable fashion show in aid of local children’s charity Naomi House & Jacksplace. The event grew out of the College's pupil-led Sustainable Fashion Society, whose members include students from St Swithun's School, and a new collaboration with Peter Symonds College to bring the project to fruition. 

The first event of its kind for the College, 60 young people came together to source and curate outfits from Naomi House & Jacksplace’s Winchester shop. Others were involved backstage with make-up and wardrobe.

Winchester College band Arcane opened the evening, and the audience was treated to a catwalk showcasing an innovative take on sustainable fashion. 

All garments featured in the show are available in an online auction in aid of the charity, which will end at 6pm on Thursday 12 May. Resilience 2022 has already raised £1,500, and hopes to reach their target of £5,000.
