Bushbells hit the catwalk at the extremely well attended annual St Catherine’s Bramley Fashion Show hosted by Charities Board on the 6th of March (fortunately just before ‘lockdown’ and the school closing!)
The Bushbells clothes were a huge hit with all of the girls modelling them, due to their flattering cut and bold and varied colour schemes which meant that there was a pair that suited everyone. The Busbells collection had the highest volume of girls modelling it, out of the entire Fashion Show, with other well-known brands such as Nike, Becca Jacks and Phase 8 being modelled too.
The event takes place in order to raise funds for charities which the School regularly helps support. This year the Charities Board supported: Afghan Connection, The Magnet School in Nairobi and the Clean Clothes Campaign. Bushbells was an excellent company for the catwalk due to its ethical nature, considering the theme this year was surrounding the current topic of eliminating “Fast Fashion”.
Over the past years over £18,000 has been raised by the Fashion show and this goes to supporting education and resources for children in many countries. As a school, it is a privilege to be able to raise money for children less fortunate. The Charities Board really appreciated being lent the garments for the purpose of the Fashion Show and we really hope we are able to continue our relationship with Bushbells and support the wonderful work they do.
Emily M, one one of the girls on the Charities Board organising the event said - “The Bushbells clothes were such fun to model, and we loved the bright colours and easy-to-wear comfort. Once again, a huge thanks to everybody who enabled this from Team Bushbells and we can’t wait for next year!
"As a school we were really delighted to make a donation to Bushbells and so pleased to know that it will be helping to furnish a class-room that is being currently being built, as well as buy another water tank and supply drainage to capture precious rainfall."
Many thanks to Emily and St Catherine's School for their ongoing support, and we are thinking of them and hope remote learning is going well.
