A nine-year-old girl’s catwalk dream has gone from strength to strength after she was chosen to appear at London Fashion Week in September.

Summer Kershaw, who lives in Borehamwood, will walk at the House of Ikons show at the Millennium Gloucester hotel in Kensington.

Before then, Summer took part in the Kids Fashion Festival runway show at School 21 in Stratford on Saturday.

She showcased a dress by designer Michele Buckland.

Alongside her work on the catwalk, Summer has been raising money for Cancel Cancer Africa, a charity that works in rural parts of Africa educating people about the early signs and symptoms of cancer.

Last Thursday, Summer took part in a sponsored swim at The Venue in Borehamwood. She swam eight lengths.

The Meryfield pupil will walk for designer Darcey Denney, who is just 11-years-old at the fashion week in September.

Summer said: “It’s brilliant walking for Darcey as she is my friend. Darcey designed me a beautiful baby blue tutu which I loved. I love being on the catwalk and taking part in fashion shows as they are so much fun and I get to see my friends and make lots of new ones and wear lovely clothes.

“I also think it’s very important to raise money for charity and help people who have less than me. It makes me feel good. I can’t wait for show day now!”

Summer’s mother, Zoe Sherlock, said: “I have always tried to show Summer from a young age it’s nice to raise money for people who may be less fortunate. Summer did her first runway show when she was just four-years-old and so she is a dab hand at it now. She really enjoys it and All money raised will go towards a new medical centre in Africa.”
