Models turn students' work into catwalk class

Fashion students showed they were the cream of the crop when they displayed their creations at their end-of-year show, writes Joseph Lee.

Professional models sashayed down the catwalk with clothing, accessories and lingerie all designed by Bradford College students.

Second-year national diploma student Natalie Eloi was working on the theme of the natural world, and chose a plum colour for the outfit of a crop-top and trousers, pictured above. Tutor Angela Loftus said: "The Fashion Show is the highlight of the year for the students. It is the culmination of all their hard work and allows them to show off all they have learned while being at the college."

This year's students will be hoping to follow in the footsteps of successful alumni such as Colin Wolfenden. He started his own clothing label, Bent Corrupt, whose designs have been worn by celebrities from Robbie Williams to Tom Cruise.

But he has also become the star of Channel 4 lifestyle show Fairy Godfathers, in which he dispenses style advice to hapless husbands and boyfriends.

The show also included the work of children from nearby schools, given the opportunity to display their creativity on the catwalk as part of a college-run competition.
