    It depends on the theme of the fashion show. Generally, though, you'll need to play a mix of up-beat stuff, but not necessarily a club hit. I'd a suggest a song from Kanye (maybe Flashing Lights?), Pharrel/NERD (just about anything), also Snoop and Pharrel's Beautiful (might not be appropriate for your school, though).

    I was thinking about this the other day actually. I'd have an angry fashion show like Vivenne Westwood's, I'd begin with Choose Life from Trainspotting and then go into Argument by Robots In Disguise.

    was thinking the same as you, although we used to use instrumentals when we did these, avoided the lyrics

    use the tab on the right to see the rest, cos kanye is quite a good producer if nothing else

    Atomic - Blondie
    Born Slippy - Underworld (has a good marching pace for the models, if they can manage in heels)
    But this one is awesome, especially if you can use those same visuals After Every Party I Die

    It sounds quite funky, techno and I think it would go well with a fashion show

    Hm, not necessarily but it would get a little boring after a while.

    What's the theme? Punk, electronic? (in regards to the music). Watch some of Gok's Fashion Fix and see what music he uses (even though he's an ass), or alternatively watch a fashion show online that's similar to the sort of thing you'll have at school.

    They used this one on Gok's Fashion Fix, I know it's pretty long so you could edit it but it worked on his show..

    I've an Elle Collections kicking about my house somewhere with the music from all the fashion shows, if that would be of any use!

    I just came here to post the exact same song. :p: It'd work with the futuristic theme as well.

    Most big desingers do dancey stuff like Simian Mobile Disco (Versace) or Justice etc. They tend to do modern dance songs unless there is a specific theme to their clothes like vintage stuff, then they might play a vintagey song. Sleep Deprivation by Simian Mobile Disco is really good and Hustler Just adding LCD Soundsystem - Daft Punk is playing at my house, Fedde Le grand- put your hands up for Detroit and Chemical Bros - most of their stuff really, Midnight Madness, Saturate and Do It Again are all good.
    Just for fun, Ernie K Doe - Here come the girls (off the Boots advert)
    Good Luck! I hope no one trips over

    'Temptation Waits' by Garbage would be a good'un. Random upbeat, dancey, hip hop stuff...perchance 'Stronger' by Kanye West.
