A passion for fashion
Students exploded onto the catwalk in the drama hall at the College of North East London (CONEL) at an eagerly anticipated Fashion Show on Thursday 16 December.
CONEL students, friends and families were in attendance, and after the success of the previous fashion show, held in February, this follow up certainly showed off the diversity and creativity of students at the College.
The ticket only event brought together many different cultures through their passion for fashion so that Tottenham could show what it has to offer to the rest of London. The money collected from the tickets will go towards equipment and trips for the participating students in recognition of their hard work.
The show was split into three sections; Cultural Fashion where students proudly showed off clothing from their roots, Formal Wear and Freestyle where the best male and female outfit won prizes.
Jackson Ogunyemi, also known as Action Jackson, hosted the nights entertainment which included singing, belly dancing and a traditional Chinese dance believed to ward off evil spirits. Afterwards, the audience tucked into an assortment of food that mirrored the clothing worn in the Cultural Fashion section.
The College attracted a large audience who had a memorable night and Karlene Sutherland, Youth Worker/Student Liaison Officer who co-organised the event, was very proud of the students, They have all put in so much to make this event work and they should all be very proud of themselves, this event is definitely one to remember.
