Creative industries students in London brought some sparkle to winter at Brent Cross shopping centre with a showcase of live music, photography and fashion.

The winter showcase was themed ‘glitz and glamour’ and combined the talents of creative learners from Barnet and Southgate College, with fashion and hairdressing students modelling their own designs as well as make-up by beauty students, who were also offering make-overs to shoppers.

Music students accompanied the fashion show with live performances, while photography students had a chance to exhibit their work in public.

Kamila Agayea, 18, an NVQ level one hair and beauty student who modelled in the show, said: “I was a little nervous before I stepped onto the catwalk but the cheers from the crowd were amazing. It’s such great experience to be part of a live show, with live music in front of an actual audience.”

She added: “We’ve been preparing for the show for several weeks to ensure it all looks amazing and goes smoothly – it’s definitely been the best thing about my course so far.”
