Students strut their stuff to raise funds for cancer
Charity took on a chic new look at a student run fashion show that raised over $30,000 towards cancer services.
The 14th annual Kristin School Fashion Show was once more a success generating $36,000 towards CanTeen, The Breast Cancer Research Trust and the Child Cancer Foundation.
Originally established by former students Tom McRae and Claire Ashenden who lost a friend to cancer in 1998, the show has now raised over $302,000 in total.
This year's event involved more than 200 students and 21 renowned fashion labels including Trelise Cooper, Moochi, Yvonne Bennetti and Sera Lily.
Past student Hadley Pegden, owner of Ponsonby store Needles and Threads, saw his garments walk the runway along with designs from current students Darcy Hughes, Emma Sinclair and Georgina Thompson.
The two-day production has been more than a year in the making.
It saw around 1500 guests through the doors.
