Once again, students from the University of Central Lancashire will be among the best
and brightest of Britain's up-and-coming designers displaying their wares at The Prince's
Trust Graduate Fashion Week 2002.
Sponsored by Topshop, this unmissable event is the premier showcase for graduating
students from top fashion colleges throughout the UK. The University's Catwalk Show
will be held in Theatre 'A', at Battersea Park Arena, London, on Tuesday 11 June at 4.00
pm. There will also be an exhibition stand, for the duration of the event, exhibiting work
from final year students of the BA (Hons) Fashion, BA (Hons) Fashion Promotion and
Combined Honours Fashion & Brand Promotion courses.
Local students exhibiting this year include 22 year old Anne Louise Smith, from Croston
with her designs inspired by the traditional Spanish t1amenco and bullfighting costumes.
The former Bishop's Rawthorne pupil is joined by Janine Bolton, 25, whose work looks
at the idea of making art, such as sculpture into reality. Langridge-based J anine, who
used to attend St Cecilia's High School, calls her collection, Assemblage. Both Anne
Louise and Janine are looking forward to exciting careers within the fashion industry.
