Big thanks once again to Pete Baxter from Northwest Productions for his fabulous filming.
The students from Fallibroome Academy kicked off Runway on the Runway 2017 with their amazing show-stopping catwalk.
Winners of the best catwlak trophy in 2015, they certainly set the bar!
n 2013 the students from the Co-Operative Academy in Blackley were the first ever students to perform for us on the Concorde Catwalk and they did us proud. They performed again in 2015 and we were delighted to have them back in 2017. Runway Veterans!
One of the highlights of the evening was when 20 young people, each one of them either going through, or having been through treatment for cancer took to the catwalk. They wanted to pay tribute to Callum Ballantine and celebrate both his life and his wonderful Made from Manchester fashion legacy.

These amazing students from Cheadle Hulme were just pipped at the post for the best catwalk award.. you will see why.
Most importantly, they performed as a tribute to former pupil Callum Ballantine. Well done everyone !
Special mention to the very cool Zak who brought the house down with his fabulous footwork.
We were delighted to welcome the students from St Ambrose Barlow High School starring Shelwin and Salah to our catwalk for the very first time. Well done!
One of the best things to come out of the Runway on the Runway event is the Cinderella Project and we were thrilled to have two amazing young singers Courtney Gill and Annica Holloway perform the very poignant song "Beautiful" by Christina Aguilera for us on 31st March. Everyone deserves to feel beautiful especially young girls who may have lost their self confidence due to the greuling treatment for cancer and related illnesses.
The Cinderella Project is about pulling out all the stops to make sure that any young lady who is going through treatment or post-treatment gets to feel normal again and does not miss out on joining in any special event such as prom just because it is a lot more challenging for her.
Here at the Cinderella project we can wave our magic wand to guarantee that she looks and feels amazing.
If anyone knows of any young lady from Greater Manchester and the surrounding areas that deserves a special make-over please get in touch with us.
Runway veterans Kings School Macclesfield once again blew us all away with this showcase catwalk. The girls looked stunning in these amazing prom gowns from top designer Mori-Lee with the boys rocked the Slaters look once again. Well done Kings!
No Runway on the Runway would be complete without the amazing students from Manchester Enterprise Academy. Their hip hop catwalk was on point and the girls looked stunning in their Quiz dresses. As for the boys......coooooool !
We were honoured to pay tribute to a very special lady Alexandra Jones who sadly passed away in November 2016. 26yr old Alex was diagnosed with breast cancer when she was only 23yrs old and we aim to carry on her legacy of making sure women of all ages realise the inportance of checking their breasts regularly.
Amazing songstress Laura McDonagh from Wellington School pays tribute to Alexandra.
These gorgeous ladies from Christ the King School in Southport made their debut at Runway this year and treated us to a dazzling catwalk in their scrumpcious Jenny Packham dresses courtesy of Debenhams. Well done girls!
Joining us for the very first time were the students from Wellington School in Timperley.
They blew the audience away with a "Supersonic" display and waltzed off with the Boss Models trophy for the best catwalk. Amazing!
The last school to hit the catwalk at Runway on the Runway 2017 was Knutsford Academy and we must say they were worth waiting for.....
Well done everyone!
For the first time ever we asked the teachers to join their students on the Concorde Catwalk.
13 fashion forward teachers volunteered to pimp their uniform and join in the fun. Teachers from Fallibroome Academy, Knutsford Academy, The Co-Op Academy, Tytherington School, Manchester Enterprise Academy, Christ the King School and Wellington School all took part and looked as if they were having the time of their lives!
Thank you all of you for putting yourself out there, being such great sports and of course, upstaging the students!
We were thrilled to have this fabulous string quartet from Manchester's finest, the Halle Orchestra perform for us at the show.
As everyone knows Runway on the Runway is about supporting young people living with cancer both those in remission and those who are still fighting.....
This year we had the pleasure of welcoming the beautiful Demi, Melissa, Laura, Lydia, Rachel, Honor, Lauren and Lindsey on to the Conorde Catwalk modelling the beautiful collection of evening gowns from Diamante in Bramhall.
