Year Two BA Fashion student, Dianne Kwok, has been shortlisted in the Graduate Fashion Week Little Black Dress competition to design a dress for the TV star.

The Britain's Got Talent judge will announce the winner live at Graduate Fashion Week and wear the dress at a high profile red carpet or TV event.

The brief was to encapsulate Alesha's style in a high fashion. Entrants were asked to showcase their skills by showing the creative process, technical specifications, pattern cutting, prototyping and a marketing plan around their finished product.

Dianne Kwok said: 'I am so delighted to reach the final stage of the competition. I really enjoy creating real garments from the research and design development I'm doing on my course. Presenting my design to Alesha Dixon was nerve racking but so exciting.'
