Fashion designers showcase their work during show

Aspiring fashion designers have the opportunity to show what they are capable of during the Norwich Fashion Week in England. The show will feature design students work over the years, and they are challenged to find their creative style throughout the process, according to the Norwich Evening News.

The six students who will be starting off the week’s events are from Norwich University College of the Arts (NUCA).

“Through the partnership with Cancer Research UK, students were briefed to be experimental and challenge creativity within their work,” Sue Chowles, course leader of the BA Hons Fashion course at NUCA, told the news source. “Using key words such as metamorphosis, inside out, upside down and back to front, students were encouraged to take risks, develop technique and produce conceptual and directional fashion.”

The Norwich Fashion Week starts up this Thursday, the media outlet reports.

Prospective fashion designers may be interested in what they will be earning once they start their career and finish their design programs. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the annual median salary in 2008 was $61,000.
