Circus and Fairground Fashion Show


Over 120 students were involved in a Circus and Fairground themed fashion show and competition at Southport College. Staff and students from Art & Design, Beauty Therapy, Graphic Design, Hairdressing, Media, Painting & Decorating, Photography and Hospitality & Catering courses joined forces to host a dazzling evening of fashion and entertainment.

The collaboration saw hospitality students welcoming visitors to the event with a range of fairground themed snacks they had produced in the College’s training restaurant, Clouds. The circus-themed stage was designed and assembled by Painting and Decorating students. The models took to the stage and showcased costume designs produced by our Art students with hair and make-up design by our Hair and Beauty students. Media and photography students were on hand to document the event and a musical interlude provided by even more of Southport College’s talented students kept guests entertained while the judging took place.

The judges were made up of a panel of industry representatives including Reece Salon Birkdale, The Style Room Formby, Dennis Williams Hair and Beauty supplies and L’Oréal. They had the unenviable task of choosing between such high-quality work but eventually settled on the following outcomes.
