Photo gallery: Norwich show provides a platform for students’ creative skills

Students from City College Norwich put on a spectacular and professional show at The Assembly House last night.

The creative talents of students from City College Norwich came to The Assembly House last night for the annual performing arts and fashion showcase, Platform.

The event showcased the work of students from the School of Creative and Business Industries, creating a show that was full of fashion, music, comedy and art.

Fresh from making an impact at the launch of Norwich Fashion Week, textile students brought their designs to the catwalk with designs that included the white embroidery pieces designed by first year students shown at Norwich Fashion Week last month.

Second year students modelled their own garments which included an impressive array of theatrical and evening garments and a spectacular display of eco-friendly fashions made from recycled material such as plastic and paper, which were showcased in three sets inspired by the circus, horror and oriental themes.

The audience was treated to vibrant performances from City College dance students who combined the elements of jazz, street dance, ballet and contemporary dance, and were amused by the improvised comedy sketches by some of the Performing Arts students.

The event also saw a special guest appearance by up and coming rap artist C.O.L.L. The rapster reached the final of Future Radio's Next Big Thing competition and has made an appearance on BBC Radio Norfolk's Introducing series.
