Brilliantly organised by Hannah Long and Marianna Cox and supported by the sensational technical crew, led by Luke Gilliver, the Amnesty International Fashion Show was a huge success. The theme of ‘Fashion through the decades’ saw students from Year 6 at Bootham Junior School right up to College II strut their stuff. New age, pirates, flappers, Vikings, tropical warriors, mods, hippies and new romantics were all represented: view them all in our gallery below. Furthermore an auction of paintings and prints generously donated by Richard Barnes and Jade Blood just after the interval was hosted by Chris Jeffery. Ticket sales, a crisis lunch, donations from a bake sale and a very lively art auction raised a total of £1356.71! What an achievement!
