Work by more than 100 students was showcased in the end-of-term events, which were opened by Roberta Blackman-Woods, Durham City MP, who congratulated the staff and students on their hard work.

As well as providing the students with a chance to show their talents the fashion show also helped to raise money for a number of children’s charities.

Linda Butterfield, curriculum and course leader at the Framwellgate college, said: “The art students grafted away, focusing their efforts on this end-of-year show and the results were definitely impressive.

“The work on display was outstanding, the students worked incredibly hard and we are all very proud of what they achieved.”

For many of the students the event marked the end of their time at New College Durham before they head off to university.
