A colourful fashion show with a variety of dance performances brought the Vestry Hall to life on the 30th of August. The clothes were all designed and made by girls who have attended the Burngreave After School Support Project (BASSP).

The event, a vibrant celebration of different cultures and diversity, was organised by Diane Haimeed, the coordinator of BASSP, who described it as, “A fun event celebrating the success of the young people.”

The young girls spent time during the summer designing and making their own outfits.

Emily Yafai , Buthina Al-Shaibi, Iyah Hameed and Natasha Al-Guilaidi were just a few of the girls who were a part; they all agreed that designing and making the clothes was “the best”.

The clothes modelled included traditional Arab and Somali wear, formal evening dresses, and street wear. The T-shirts designs were creative and eye-catching, so watch out for them in the future!

Iyah told me how they went to Manchester to choose the fabric for their dresses, “we designed everything ourselves,” she said. The dresses had some really complicated and imaginative designs.

There were dance performances of Arabic and Bollywood styles, and were received with great responses from the audience, who were all local women and children. Speaking to dancers Hasseena Hussain and Moushmi Day I was surprised to find that the dance had been put together only two days prior to the event, as it all looked amazing.
