Havering College students show fashion flair

The next generation of up-and-coming designers from Havering College of Further and Higher Education showcased their creations at a major catwalk event.

Five final year BA Fashion degree students from the college in Hornchurch, Essex, took their cutting edge collections to London’s Alternative Fashion Week.

Press photographers from across the globe descended on the six day event at Spitalfields Traders Market in East London.

The bi-annual show is regarded by the fashion industry as a hotbed for raw, undiscovered designer talent.

Havering College was chosen from hundreds of applications for one of 85 catwalk show slots.

Head of fashion Marie Loney said: “Alternative Fashion Week is a truly international event and we are very proud our BA Fashion degree students were given the opportunity to be a part of it.

“It gave the students a real buzz to see the fantastic reaction from the sea of photographers when the models stepped onto the catwalk wearing their designs.”
