Pupils at BSix Sixth Form College, in Kenninghall Road put on the show on May 19 showcasing their talents with looks for different categories, all following the theme “Create an Image”.

There was a live media feed on the big screen and DJ sets from music technology students between each act.

Hair and beauty teacher, Gilly Church said: “I was overwhelmed with the commitment and dedication from both of my groups. They pushed through personal challenges and built skills, self-esteem and confidence to participate in this show.”

Both stylists and models said that doing the show and having their work judged by a panel improved their confidence.
