Music and Fashion students are working together to create Walk of Life, a fundraiser fashion show to celebrate both fashion and music through the decades on Thursday 22nd March.
Fashion Degree students have created both classic and interpretive pieces to represent iconic fashion eras from the 1950s to 1990s.
Sophie Woodcock, a Level 5 Fashion Degree students said, “It’s been both exciting and a challenge to create our statement pieces, and our friends and other students have had the opportunity to get involved as models; however, I think out of all the eras I’ve enjoyed creating 1970s fashion the most, because of the different types of fabrics I’ve had the chance to work with.”
Music Degree students have also been involved in the organisation of the event, from marketing to budget management. Jake Jones, a student studying Popular Music Performance said, “For anyone who is thinking of buying a ticket, you’ll not only contribute to a great cause but will experience live music and creative fashion through the ages, as well as get the chance to win a prize in our raffle.”
All the money raised from the show will be in aid of Kidney Care UK, a charity that aims to improve the lives of people with kidney disease throughout the country, by offering support and advice to them, their families and kidney units.
The event will take place at The Trades in Rotherham on Thursday 22nd March starting at 7.30pm. Tickets to the show are priced at £4.50 and can be purchased on the door or in advance from:
