A ROCHESTER student is set to showcase her work at London Fashion Week next month.
Lucinda Roberts is a fashion student at UCA Rochester
Lucinda Roberts, a third-year fashion design student at UCA Rochester, will get to display her work on the Vauxhall Fashion Scout catwalk after making the final of national talent competition Fashion Awareness Direct.
The 22-year-old, originally from Buxton, Derbyshire, said: "I'm incredibly excited about showing my work at London Fashion Week – it's a dream come true.
"It's amazing to be able to show my work at an event as big as LFW, especially while I'm still at university. It's a great opportunity for me to have my work seen by a huge audience and to network and promote myself before graduating from UCA."
Donna Ives, UCA Fashion Design course leader, said: "We are thrilled that Lucinda is through to the final of FAD.
"She is a very talented student and produced a really strong design package for the competition and we all have our fingers crossed for her."
Previous UCA Fashion School graduates include Karen Millen and Zandra Rhodes.
