Cambridge University Charity Fashion Show

The Cambridge University Charity Fashion Show (CUCFS) opened its doors on Friday 13th February 2015 in the Guild Hall. The team was lead by Millie Clark and Victoria Herrenschmidt and was for the charity Cambridge House, which was founded by students of Cambridge 125 years ago and now help on the order of 80,000 people. Here is a glimpse from the evening.

Sarah Mercer and George Longworth lead the evening. The spotlights were all angled towards the stage, which gave dramatic shadows when shooting from just in front of the stage.

The Cambridge House representative. She told us it was the first time on the catwalk for her, and she walked down the catwalk to big cheers.

I brought a 50 mm and a 35 mm lens, but ended up only using the latter. The wider angle allowed me to capture more of the surroundings. Here Stephanie Skeet.

I experimented a bit with different post processing styles. Turning this photo black and white gave it more contrast. Here Becca Elson walking down the catwalk.

I had seen part of the rehearsal when I first arrived, so I knew that Joanna was going to do a jump, and positioned myself a bit down the catwalk to capture it.

I also wanted to capture a bit of the audience and their reactions. Here the head is cut off which I would not normally do, but here his anonymity puts the focus on the girls.

I like how all the eyes are focused on the model’s back (Mariane Lisboa). This is one of my favourite photos from the evening.

Leora Amy Taratula-Lyons. I was tempted to make this photo black and white, but this dress needs the colour.

After the show ended, the catwalk was free for all. Here Hannah Jump and Lucy Pickworth.

This was a fun evening, my first fashion show. I also did a photo shoot with some of the models at the end of last year. You can find the blog post here. If you still thirst for more fashion, then have a look at the rest of the photos which are uploaded on Facebook. There is also a blog post on Cambridge Creatives by Maddie Skipsey about the fashion show. Many thanks to the committee for organising the charity fashion show!

Also read the interview with the designer Judith Musker Turner and have a look at her webpage.
