College of West Anglia students take to the catwalk with their designs

The Isle Campus, Wisbech, puts on a show of final collections

A mix of fun and funky fashion has been on show at the College of West Anglia this week when fashion students show-cased their final collections on the catwalk.

Designers at the Isle Campus in Wisbech have been working hard for nine months to produce their creative collections, and the show provided an insight into new trends for the forthcoming seasons.

The range of garments on show included casual shirt dresses, winter woollen cultural coats, 1950s print dresses, and outfits inspired by the theme of below stairs.

The show was organised and produced by the fashion students and staff and the hair and make-up was designed by the fashion students.

Both first and second year students on the BTEC subsidiary and extended diploma in fashion had worked intensively to produce their collections.

The course at the Ramnoth Road site has gained national and international recognition, and is the only course of its kind in the region. It integrates fashion design, illustration, pattern cutting, garment construction and textiles, including evening wear, sportswear and menswear.
