Selkirk High’s really frocky horror show

Selkirk High School is putting on a fashion show called The Really Frocky Horrow Show on Thursday, March 27, in outfits designed and modelled by students.

In the months before the show, the school’s creative fashion students presented a design brief to local primary 7 pupils, who will be modelling their outfits with a Commonwealth twist on the catwalk.

First-year youngsters have also designed scarves, beside high-fashion outfits created by many Borders companies.

A taster of the children’s work was shown at a photoshoot in The Haining by photographer John Parris, who has supported the school’s creative fashion course for 10 years.

The show will be opened by two musicians, Davie Chapman and Iain Scott from Scocha, plus two former pupils of the course, now both teaching in Selkirk primary schools.

Tickets are on sale from Rogerson the Newsagent and Scott’s Selkirk at a cost of £6, and £4 for concessions, for the evening show at 7.30pm. An afternoon dress rehearsal, starting at 2pm, is also open to the public, costing £2.
