Selkirk High School’s first annual fashion show, The Frocky Horror Show, glammed up the Royal Burgh last Thursday.

The school’s creative fashion students designed and modelled their garments, created by ‘Up-Cycling’ clothes to fit the categories they had to work their magic on.

The course’s Claire Hood praised the students, saying: “They fulfilled their design briefs superbly and took to the catwalk in a confident manner, strutting their stuff to a very appreciative audience.”

The show was opened by two former students of the course, Sarah Blake and Amy Robertson, both now primary school teachers in Selkirk – and the women even wore outfits they had designed years ago.

Senior pupils and staff also graced the catwalk in imaginative sports and wedding outfits.

Earlier, Selkirk High’s feeder primary schools competed to design a T-shirt or top suitable for Glasgow’s Commonwealth Games, with the winners modelling their creations, while all primary seven entries were displayed in the hall.

First-year pupils also modelled scarves they had made in the school’s art and design department.

Scocha got the show off to a lively start, and music for the Tweed, Wool and Tartan sections was provided by students from the school’s music department.

More support came from the mills which donated offcuts and trimmings, and from Parris Photography.

An exhibition of the Selkirk students’ work will be on display at the Borders Textile Towerhouse in Hawick from Saturday, April 12, until May 24.
