GATHER18 Fashion Show and After Hours music at OPEN

03 July 2018

This year's Fashion Show, in aid of Break charity, was organised by members of the school's charity committee and showcased not only some of the city's best fashion retailers but also lines designed by pupils at Norwich school, as part of their A Level Art and Design portfolios.

The evening included several dance acts, many of which were choreographed by Norwich School pupils. 

Sixth former, Maisie Cruikshank, designed a impactful collection using the suffragette movement as her inspiration. The clothes were particularly poignant this year, as we celebrate the 100th year of women having the right to vote in the UK. 

Sophie Todd, Norwich School sixth former and organiser of the Fashion Show, designed a collection for Break. Drawing inspiration from the artwork created for the Norwich School hare, which is part of the GoGoHares trail by the charity Break. All merchandise Sophie designed was on sale at the end of the Fashion Show. 

Having designed collections, modeled and danced in previous years, Sophie was keen to organise the Fashion Show this year. "I learnt so much," she says, " I am keen to get into the fashion industry, so this was the perfect event to get involved in. It was a real opportunity to manage people."

Over £2,500 was raised on the evening, which will go to Break, including money from ticket sales and the raffle. 

TV presenter and patron to Break charity, Jake Humphrey's, was in attendance on the night. Jake gave a moving speech to the audience about the excellent work Break charity does with vulnerable children in Norfolk.

"It's great to be here and see the confidence of the children on stage tonight. But we must remember that right outside these doors there are people that are less fortunate than us."

Following the Fashion Show, bands and singer-songwriters from a range of year groups performed live as part of 'After Hours', a GATHER18 event.
