    Young designers wow crowds

    Up and coming fashion designers saw their designs hit the catwalk in an end of year fashion show in trendy Camden Town.

    Crowds at chosen venue 'The Cuban' were wowed by a range of designs created for the show, organised and staged by the students themselves to mark the end of their first year at Middlesex University.

    Approximately 100 fashion and fashion textile students, worked in pairs to design and make the outfits.  They conducted research for the pieces at the Museum of Domestic Design & Architecture (MoDA) Camden fashion show 3based at Middlesex University, where they used material from the late nineteenth to the late twentieth century for visual inspiration for their contemporary outfits.

    Middlesex University fashion lecturer Paul Rawson said: “From the first year we ensure the students work together so that they get used to collaborating with others as they would do in industry.  It works well and I’m really pleased with the show, particularly as the whole production was organised by the students.  Everyone challenged themselves and there was nothing ‘safe’ in the show.”

    Fashion student Olivia Overton (19) from Hendon said: “The catwalk was incredible and great to see all our hard work on show.  It is really fulfilling seeing it all come together after working on the project since December.”
