Norwich fashion students have collaborated with retailer John Lewis on a limited edition eveningwear collection.

The three Norwich University of the Arts students, who have all graduated this year, worked with the John Lewis design team to create dresses for the John Lewis Kin range.

Alice Potts, Daina Ecaite, Yee Ki Ng were given the opportunity to create a range of dresses that highlight their expertise within pattern cutting and design.

The dresses are currently on display in John Lewis Norwich and are available to purchase on John Lewis' website.

Sue Chowles, NUA Fashion course leader, said the collaboration was a wonderful opportunity for the students to experience and be actively involved with the entire creative process from initial designs on the drawing board to final model fittings.
