St Mary's Spectacular Fashion Show!

An outstanding showcase of design flair and technical ability – not to mention poise and confidence – St Mary's Fashion Show on 28 and 29 March was a spectacular occasion.

Audiences of family, friends, former and prospective pupils were enormously impressed as Year 8 girls modelled pyjama bottoms they had made using a commercial pattern and Year 9 students showed off their festival wear.

GCSE Textiles students answered design briefs that required them to create childrenswear, theatre costumes, punk and goth outfits, or a special occasion garment inspired by another culture. All of the outfits were designed and made by the wearer, using fabrics and trimmings they had chosen themselves.

St Mary's is an independent school for girls aged 3-16 and boys aged 3-4, set on two campuses close to Colchester town centre.
