Gallery: College of West Anglia students show off work at fashion show

OUTRAGEOUS punk fashion and demure designs from the 1950s were the inspiration for some of the head-turning designs at the College of West Anglia’s catwalk show in Wisbech.

Students took their cue from a wide range of design ideas to come up with their own eye-catching pieces, which went on show to the public at the college’s Isle campus.

Lecturer Michelle James said: “We are very proud of our excellent reputation in the world of fashion and textiles and the shows are a fantastic opportunity to impress everyone with the results of all the hard work over the year.

“The students put everything into this and their dedication is reflected in the high standards on display – it is a real credit to them and to the hard work of all the staff.

“Many of our students go on to continue their studies at university and ultimately find work in their chosen profession. It’s incredibly rewarding to know that we have given them the best possible start at Isle.

“Our standards are high, as are our expectations.

Children’s charity Barnardos has also been heavily involved in this year’s show as it donated knitwear which the students have manipulated to create completely new looks. Students will make a collection for the charity during the interval.
