COTSWOLD SCHOOL

Fashion Guru puts The Cotswold School on the Catwalk Fashion visionary George Davies (the man behind Next, George of Asda and Marks & Spencer’s PER UNA collection) has supported The Cotswold School’s own annual Fashion Show through the George Davies Charitable Trust for many years. Building upon that fantastic relationship, Mr Davies selected The Cotswold School as the venue for a new venture: a show to launch his own new children’s and women’s wear range FG4, with proceeds going to benefit the school community. This new charitable fashion show venture was developed ‘with a view, to bringing the whole community together,’ says George, ‘to benefit the young people and give them a really exciting experience.’ Mr Davies’ new collection was modelled by students from The Cotswold School as well as from Bourton on the Water and Great Rissington Primary Schools, who were also joined by several brave members of Cotswold School staff on the catwalk.

stylists of VUOLO hair and beauty in Northleach and makeup artists from Space NK Apothecary in Cheltenham generously volunteered their services to ensure the models were catwalk ready on the night. A pop-up shop opened after the show, giving the audience an opportunity to try on and buy items from Davies’ exciting new FG4 range. Headmaster Mr Morgan said ‘the launch of the FG4 collection at The Cotswold School was an enormous success. As well as raising muchneeded funds, the opportunity for us as a school to work in partnership with professionals such as the FG4 team and involve students has been incredibly valuable. While some pupils modelled clothes, others were involved behind the scenes assisting Front of House, producing the show’s lighting and sound and others worked as photographers. Just as George envisaged at our initial meeting, this event brought our community – pupils, parents, friends and local businesses – together.The result was a resounding success and we do hope to be able to repeat it in the future.’
