Fashion students will be showcasing their creative side at a catwalk show.


The Dress Fancy event sees students from the University of Central Lancashire using clothes donated by St Catherine’s Hospice stores to create outfits.

The show, at 53 Degrees, will also raise money for the hospice.

Fashion course leader Jacqui McAssey said: “I think it is fitting that these young people have been challenged to create a modern fashion show whilst acknowledging the creativity of 80s art, music and style.

“They are also motivated by the support they have received from St Catherine’s Hospice and are working hard to produce a high quality event.”

Two shows will take place on Wednesday 27 November.

The first show is for schools and colleges to attend at 3pm, tickets are available by emailing Sue Forster on

The second show is at 7pm and tickets cost £4.
