CANCER patients took to the catwalk in a charity fashion show.

The event, in aid of the Sussex Cancer Fund, took place at the Audrey Emerton Building in Eastern Road, Brighton, on Friday.

Stylish models showed off winter collections from shops including Hobbs, Rock Lobster, Next, Debenhams, Collectif and Phase Eight. Cove Hairdressers and Rose Waters styled the hair, Trendco provided wigs and Clinique staff were in charge of make up.

Stylist Jane Busby staged the event which was organised with Mhairi Donald and Julia Lenton from the charity. The money raised will go directly to the Royal Sussex County Hospital cancer centre.

Jane said: "The evening was a huge success. The models were patients and the room was filled with women who were affected by cancer. It was a great evening to boost everyone's confidence."
