Our amazing Hair, Beauty and Media-Make-Up students got some hands-on experience behind the scenes at Winchester Fashion Week Catwalk Show on Saturday 21st October. 

Winchester Fashion Week celebrates style in Winchester, with a range of amazing events and activities, including showcases, exhibitions and workshops. The week culminated in a Grand Finale Catwalk show and our aspiring hairdressers and make-up artists demonstrated their talents by providing full hair and make-up services to 20 catwalk models. 

Head of Curriculum for Hair & Beauty, Nicola Glasspool, said “this was a wonderful opportunity for our students to practise their skills in a real working environment. It was an amazing day and they did a fantastic job. They demonstrated their creativity, commitment and dedication and we are immensely proud of them.” 

Our Hair and Beauty department have been collaborating with Winchester Fashion Week for a number of years and it is a fantastic platform for students to hone their skills and demonstrate the amazing work they are doing in class, whilst also supporting a local community event. Well done all!
