Petroc fashion show make a “Mini” statement to raise money for Children’s Hospice South West

CHARITY catwalk fun was in the offing on Thursday as graduating Petroc fashion students displayed their newest designs to help raise money for Children's Hospice South West.

With local radio personality James Chapple at the mic, art and design BTEC National and First Year Diploma students from the college's School of Creative Industries exhibited their designs in a multimedia fashion show at the Brannam campus.

They were also modelling the classically British 2011 Mini clothing collection, which will be auctioned off in aid of the hospice. They also designed a "wrap" for the Mini and the winning design was unveiled on the night by event supporter Westerly Barnstaple.

The show raised around £600 for the Children's Hospice.
