Twenty four national diploma fashion, art and design students transformed the social club at Darlington Memorial Hospital into a style runway as they showed off their final collections.
A total of pounds 345 was raised to go towards transforming a room at the hospital's pain clinic into an auricular therapy room for holistic treatments.
The show was the idea of patient Susan Heald, of West Auckland, who has used the pain clinic for the past three years.
"I was in permanent pain after undergoing abdominal surgery but the clinic has given me my life back, it really has," she said. "It was a brilliant night and the kids were fantastic.
"The money will go towards the special therapy room where people will be able to go together for treatments and talk about their problems."
Darlington College fashion tutor Lynne Waterfall-Brown said: "We were delighted to help such a good cause and it also gave the students the opportunity to show off their work."
