CATWALK models were wearing North Hertfordshire College fashion and textile students' couture creations at The Clothes Show Live 2006.
For the sixth year running the college took part in the Birmingham NEC fashion extravaganza and this time students took their inspiration from Italian fashion designer Roberto Capucci.
His work was famous in the 1950s and 60s for incorporating natural forms such as shells, petals, butterflies and fossils into striking colours, pleating and manipulated fabric.
With his work in mind and using only three related colours, the year two National Diploma Design students created two identical outfits that were paraded at the massive fashion event.
One was worn on the catwalk in front of hundreds of fashion lovers and the other was modelled by the students themselves at the North Hertfordshire College stand at the show.
They were supported by media make-up students who catwalked, and stylists and 3D design students who designed the college stand.
