Catherine Lovick, 22, is hoping for a career in sportswear or swim wear design now that she has finished her Bachelor of Arts honours degree in contour fashion at De Montfort University in Leicester.

Ms Lovick, who attended Hethersett Old Hall School, said: 'When I left Hethersett in 2013, I wasn't sure what to do next so I took a gap year and worked as a lifeguard at Riverside in Norwich for a while.'

Ms Lovick said HOHS's textiles teacher Jo Ling told her about the contour fashion course - one of only two in the country specialising in underwear, swim wear and night wear and corsets.

She said: 'It appealed to me. I looked at lots of others but kept coming back to this one, and am so glad I did. It's given me amazing opportunities, including an internship at bridal designers Caroline Castiligiano.'
