The work of Norwich's next generation of fashion designers was showcased on the catwalk in London as part of Graduate Fashion Week at the weekend.
More than 30,000 guests, leading industry brands, critics and trendwatchers gathered in the capital to see 22 catwalk shows and exhibitions from over 40 universities.
Representing Norwich University of the Arts (NUA), 18 students from the BA Fashion degree course presented their graduating collections of garments on the catwalk at the Truman Brewery.
Course Leader Sue Chowles said: 'The course encourages students to be truly revolutionary and push boundaries.
'The students have had the opportunity to engage with live projects with brands such as Marks and Spencer, Topshop, Urban Outfitters, Burberry and Monsoon and have produced some innovative and beautifully refined collections, which continue to set the benchmark for the future.'
