After months of  preparation, the day of the Trashion Show finally arrived. The Theatre On The Hill, at St John’s Marlborough was buzzing throughout the day as our dedicated committee, made their final preparations for this incredible event.

From 2pm the designers started to arrive and the excitement started to build, until Rob,  our sound and lighting guy was counting down the last two minutes before the show began and the presenters, Phil Ridge and Angela Hobbs arrived on stage.

Judges, Jennie Bethwaite, Craig Becconsall, Tanya Sarne, Karen Ryan and Waz had an incredibly difficult task ahead of them and throughout the show, they heaped praise on the incredible effort and innovative ideas that had gone into the designs. The Audience Prize, sponsored by the Hills Group was presented by Mike Hill and a delighted winner, can now start to plan her week at the London College of Fashion.

Photographs of all of the category winners, the Charlie Lamb Achievement prize and Judges winners will soon be available, we are  busy collecting the images and reports of the evening. Photographs of the event and winners will also be available to purchase, with proceeds to Charlie’s Charity.

So come back here soon for full news and reports. Plus news of future Charlie’s Charity events .

Thanks to all our helpers, supporters and sponsors.
