NEWTON Mearns teens Hollybeth Gourlay and Heather Currie are on the road to design stardom, thanks to some creative dresses made from the pages of glossy magazines.

The 17-year-olds were chosen to create a collection for a WeightWatchers fashion show and calendar, in aid of Diabetes UK.

The duo worked for 90 hours on their 50s inspired pieces — using 250 WeightWatchers magazines and 12,000 staples.

Hollybeth,S6 at Hutchesons’ grammar school, told The Extra: “The project was very worthwhile and we both learned a lot from it.

“We really appreciated everyone’s support, and are completely thrilled to have gained valuable experience while having a great time.”

The calendar is available by mail order for £9 (including P&P) from 245 6380 or scotlandfundraising@diabetes.org.uk.
