Budding fashionistas from four South Ribble high schools have been set a challenge by a national supermarket chain – please customise our clothes!

Pupils at Penwortham Girls’ High, Lostock Hall Academy, Walton le Dale Arts College and Brownedge St Mary’s High schools are determined to show that high street fashion can be a wow.....depending on the way that you wear it.

Sainsbury’s at Bamber Bridge presented each school with a bag containing five items of women’s clothing from the store’s sale rails – a T shirt, jacket, leggings, scarf and dress.

The challenge is for the pupils to use them to the best advantage.

The theme of the contest is “Best of British” and colours have been limited to red, white and blue in recognition of the Olympic and Jubilee year celebrations.

Lisa Burquest from Sainsbury’s said: “It’s just a local initiative.

“Every outfit they put on the catwalk has to have one of the items we gave them in some shape or form.”

The show follows the success a similar venture last year when only two schools were involved, and will see pupils working on their designs both in school and their own time.

This year the make overs will be unveiled at a special show, complete with catwalk, in the cafe at the store at 7.30pm on November 13.

Tickets cost £1.00 from the store and funds raised from the show will be donated to the Sue Ryder home at nearby Cuerden Hall.
