TALENTED Wearsiders showed off their work in style.

Sunderland students took to the catwalk to showcase the ever-changing world of fashion, and reveal what will be hitting the shops in the future.

A fashion film premiere, a runway show with garments, cupcake stalls, a manicurist, and a DJ were all part of the event, held in a city nightclub, in a bid to help the students raise money to meet up with future employees.

The Basement in Green Street hosted the fashion show. About £1,200 was raised towards a trip for University of Sunderland students to travel to London for Fashion Week, with the hope of impressing some of the biggest retailers in the world.

All 21 second-year students on the fashion, product and promotion course at the university, including Miss Britain runner-up Tamzin Cummings, took part in the runway show, unveiling their designs including 1950s vintage styles, dresses and suits.

It is hoped that when they get to London next year, they can follow in the footsteps of former Wearside student Sophia Ramsey, who impressed clothing company Abercrombie & Fitch so much that she is now working for them in the United States.

Sophia, 22, landed her dream job after being spotted in London with her university portfolio. She is now working in Ohio designing women’swear.
