More than 20 women took to the catwalk as part of the seventh annual Keeping Abreast More Than Just a Fashion Show.
Women who have had a mastectomy, lumpectomy or breast reconstruction walked the OPEN Norwich catwalk in aid of the Norwich-based charity Keeping Abreast.
Sharon Lilley, 50, a first timer on the catwalk, said: 'I feel really nervous, I was okay this morning but it's beginning to hit me now.
'I came to last year's event when I was just finishing my radiotherapy, I found it really inspiring and uplifting, all the women were so brave.'
Women taking part in the show were showing off local Norwich fashion pieces for the likes of Scarlet and Jarrolds.
