Fashion show outfits created and modelled by learners

Art and design students from Lancashire-based Nelson and Colne College proved they were cut out for the fashion industry by creating stylish outfits that they modelled on the catwalk.

The group of 18 level two and three learners were photographed during the fashion show at Colne Golf Club by level three extended diploma art and design students studying photography and media as a part of their course.

Their hair and make-up was done by level two hairdressing and beauty therapy students.

Joanne Hadcroft, curriculum leader for art and design, introduced each student on to the catwalk with a short explanation of the techniques and inspiration behind each garment.

She said: “The show was flawless and the students performed admirably.

“We’re all very proud of everyone who took part.”

The event raised more than £800 for the Stand Up to Cancer charity.

Art and design student Amelia Ward, who created and modelled an outfit inspired by changing weather patterns, said: “I enjoyed taking part as I have lost a few people to cancer. I really liked showing the garments I have made to the public as they are very different to the clothes modelled by the fashion shops.”
