Students’ Charity Catwalk Show

A charity catwalk show organised entirely by students on the Creative and Media Advanced Diploma at City College Norwich has raised over £200 for Comic Relief.

The event at The Garage in Norwich treated the audience to a vibrant evening of fashion, dance and music.  The show was organised by students Nisha Ellis, Tuesdy George, Natasha Torbati, Camilla Bell and Laura Parker, and was assessed as part of their Diploma course.

Local independent retailers showcased their latest collections on the catwalk including Another Store on Lower Goat Lane, previously known as Bespoke Boutique, who showcased its new spring casual wear for men. Love Couture showcased a unique collection of dresses. 

The second half of the show took the audience back to the 50s with Retreat Vintage on Magdalen Street and Daisy & Lola on Lower Goat Lane both showing 50s vintage and 50s inspired outfits.

In addition to the fashion, the evening featured high energy performances by dancers choreographed by Stephen Knights and a solo performance by Bodywork dancer Oliver Chapman.

Nisha Ellis, one of the organisers of the show, said: “The idea was to entertain the audience with a performance that mixes fashion, dance and music. It was also a great opportunity to show what the smaller shops in Norwich have to offer rather than just introduce the collections from the bigger high street brands that everyone is already aware of.”
