Diversity on the catwalk in Southampton

Daily Echo: Diversity on the catwalk in Southampton Diversity on the catwalk in Southampton

BEAUTY and style came in all forms on the catwalk in Southampton at the weekend.

Southampton Solent University student Pasha Hughes organised a fashion show with a difference, using a diverse range of models from 82-year-old pensioners to British Paralympic athletes.

Pasha, 21, said: “The whole idea was to promote diversity in high street fashion because the current high street shops don’t cover it well enough.

“You never see a mannequin of a guy in a wheelchair or a plus-size model in a high street window and we wanted to show that these people can wear high street brands just as much.

“We had a really good turnout and were raising money for Young Minds, a charity that engages with young people and encourages positive mental health.”

Among the models at the show at The Marlands was Myles Pearson, a member of the wheelchair rugby team at the 2012 London games.

Daily Echo:

More than 50 people turned out to see the show and the money raised is still being counted by organisers.

The fashion show was also in memory of Stevie Brazier, a friend of Pasha's from Kent who died in February.

Just like to comment on how proud I am of my daughter, Pasha Hughes for the successful Catwalk show that she organized as part of her Final Major Project. She worked so hard to pull together a fantastic team and together they put on an amazing show. This Catwalk show raised money for the Charity Young Minds, and was also in memory of Stevie Brazier. Fantastic day, shame the report missed some of the these important facts?
