Young women from the Gypsy, Roma and Traveller community transformed into icons of the silver screen and took to the catwalk in Lancaster.

Teenagers aged 13-19 modelled their designs based on a cinematic theme at The Dukes theatre.

They dressed as characters from films past and present such as The Wizard Of Oz a as part of a project called Lights, Camera, Fashion.

Their costumes were made from recycled materials and had been partly inspired by a visit to a textile museum in Manchester. They designed and made the costumes, promoted the event and helped to choreograph it.
