The carefully crafted creations covered a range of fashions, including funky everyday wear, evening and prom wear and fantasy, which saw students draw inspiration from the classic War of the Worlds sci-fi novel.

Judith McArdle, lecturer in hairdressing, said: “We’re thrilled to be able to raise money for such a good cause and showcase our students’ incredible talents at the same time.

“As well as modelling on the day, our students were busy backstage providing all of the make-up and beauty treatments needed plus styling and colouring hair.

“Here at City of Sunderland College we strive to offer our students additional enrichment opportunities to support their learning.

“Experiences such as this fashion show offer our learners a chance to practise their skills which they will take with them into the world of work.”

A total of 60 first-, second- and third-year students joined forces with 16 Thornhill School pupils to put on the show.

Some of the clothing used was sourced from Sunderland stores, including Wild Brides and Special Occasions.
