It was weekend when models took the Marlands Shopping Centre escalator to the catwalk.

The charity fashion show was staged by Southampton Technical College to raise money for Shelter, a fund for the homeless.

Shops in the centre provided the clothes, student hairdressers and makeup artists applied the finer effects, and student technicians organised the recording of a promotional video of the event.

The student models underwent weeks of rigorous training to learn how to walk, smile, glare and get noticed.

As the seats filled, it looked like the months of hard work had paid off.

Interestingly, not all the pictures were shot in colour.
