A night at the movies

A night at the movies

For the last hundred years, the film industry has worked seamlessly with the fashion industry, projecting new styles to the masses and forging the first fashion icons such as Audrey Hepburn. The Guildford High School Fashion Show this year exhibited this fusion with the theme of ‘A Night at the Movies’. With a red carpet entrance, popcorn and nostalgic clips of classic films, the mood was set for a night of entertainment and fabulous fashion, showcasing the contemporary clothing in movies set from the 1910s to 2010s. From the leathers of Maverick to the khaki fedora of Indiana Jones, the girls displayed an array of enviable outfits and a large thank you must go to our retail sponsor, French Connection, as well as the textiles students who exhibited their latest styles on the catwalk. A variety of dances, including a Sound of Music ballet and tongue-and-cheek Grease number, fuelled the night with fun and vibrancy. It has been a pleasure to watch the show evolve from fanciful ideas originating eight months ago and come alive with the help and commitment of GHS and RGS students as well as the teachers involved. We are proud to announce that the Fashion Show raised £4,750 in aid of the Alice Ramsey Trust, a teenage cancer charity established by a former head girl’s parents; thank you to our audience and sponsors who kindly donated to this very worthy cause.
