An outfit designed by a student of BA (Hons) Fashion at Norwich University of the Arts (NUA) has been named as one of the best 12 examples of fashion student work in the country in 2014. Chloe Fuller, who is in her final year of study at the University, has had her work selected by the UK Fashion and Textiles Association for two high profile catwalk shows which will be seen by the leading figures in the fashion industry.

Sue Chowles, Course Leader of BA Fashion at NUA, says: “What’s remarkable is this is the first time that this new course has had a catwalk show at Graduate Fashion Week, so to have a student selected for the previews is a fantastic achievement. It’s great for Chloe, showcases the course and established Norwich University of the Arts at the forefront of fashion education in the UK.”
The first event was a Graduate Fashion Week preview at the Houses of Parliament on Thursday 1 May which showcased Chloe’s work to fashion industry and political figures. She will also have her work modelled at an exclusive black tie event at the historic Tobacco Dock in Wapping for the 2014 Fashion & Textile Awards on Thursday 22 May.
Chloe says: “I’m showing a full outfit comprising a coat, trousers and top which epitomises my whole collection. I’m trying to create something new using bonded fabrics to create impressions on the surface of the materials. I’m pretty excited to be going to these events but also very nervous!”
