Fashion in fifteen minutes! 

Live 'Passion for Fashion' challenge in the Parade
 
Students from New College in Swindon have been celebrating fashion with a twist.

Three students were set a challenge to transform the 'little black dress' to something stylish, using the shops in The Parade in Swindon town centre - on a strict budget and in fifteen minutes!
 
Stitching delight:
winner Lydia Akernam

And after styling their models, the girls were judged by Mike Pringle, Head of Cultural Partnerships, Swindon mayor David Wren, Vicki Colland from hairdressers Toni and Guy and Giovanna from Clarks.

The winner declared as 16-year-old Lydia Akerman, who was crowned the fashion guru for dressing her model in vibrant colours and feathers in the theme of 'Festivals'.
"I was the youngest here and I haven't been sewing long, so I'm totally shocked to win," Lydia told us.

Jade Owen and Sophie McFarlane were runners up in the challenge, with Jade going for a 'Day of Dead' Mexican theme, and Sophie going for a 'Homecoming Troops' theme, supporting her boyfriend in Afghanistan.
 
The show also included free professional fashion makeup makeovers, on-the-street hair styling and lots of chocolate for those watching courtesy of Thorntons.
