PUBLISHED: 17:02 21 November 2010
A GROUP of people with learning disabilities became catwalk models for the day this week, thanks to new friends at Weston College.
More than 20 people from the Brandon Trust took centre stage with a fashion show at the Winter Gardens during the charity’s annual awards event.
The models were wearing a range of evening wear outfits designed by students at the college – and their catwalk debut was praised by model and Miss Bristol, Amy Willerton.
Amy, whose brother Ross has severe autism, told the models: “I am really proud to stand here tonight as a model because I have just witnessed a revolution in fashion.”
