Norwich fashion degree and MA students brought the latest looks to the catwalk recently. Emma Harrowing shows you how to get the look of some of the trends on show.
Pastel coloured chiffon dresses, a pop of colour and experimental looks that were upside down and inside out provided a fashion feast for the eyes at the Norwich University College of the Arts (NUCA) fashion degree and MA end-of-year show a couple of weeks ago.
And the fashion glitterati agree that many of the designs on the catwalk were pieces that we would wear right now.
Of course many of the students would relish the opportunity to design an outfit for a ‘real’ person and see their design being worn out on the streets of Norwich and beyond and there is really no reason why they shouldn’t – time, materials and funding permitting.
However, for now perhaps we should take a moment to reflect on some of the designs that have been made here in Norwich.
On the international catwalks of Paris, London, Milan and New York, designers’ collections are scrutinised and trends picked up which are fed down to the high street where we can buy into the fashions envisaged by the artists.
So on to the looks that were on the NUCA catwalk. Pastels, chiffon mixed with leather, exaggerated shoulders, jackets, elegant dresses and clashing colours all featured heavily.
Pictured here are three of the main trends made in Norwich and how you can get the look now.
