Models showcase University of Lincoln fashion graduates’ costume designs on catwalk

Clothing and costume designs inspired by sleep states, Victorian photography and brutalist architecture were among the collections featured in the University of Lincoln’s annual Graduate Fashion Show.

The end-of-year showcase of work by final year students from Lincoln’s BA (Hons) Fashion degree was held at the Lincoln Performing Arts Centre on Friday, May 27.

Collections were modelled on the catwalk by both amateur and professional models, including Maxine Sykes, a graduate of the University of Lincoln, whose catwalk career has already included a role at Paris Fashion Week and an appearance in Vogue magazine.

Victoria Bellandini, Programme Leader for BA (Hons) Fashion in Lincoln’s School of Fine & Performing Arts, said: “We pride ourselves on developing fashion innovation in a degree course which embraces a hybrid approach to the subject and includes the study of fashion, costume and millinery.

“We are aiming to develop graduates who go on to successful careers across the creative industries.”
