The University of East London (UEL) has presented its students' designs at London Fashion Week (LFW) for the first time after it was recognised by the British Fashion Council.

The university’s Bachelor in Fashion Design students presented their looks under the theme ‘Intersection’ on the runway and in a showroom at a disused office block at Broadgate which was reworked by one of the architecture and interior design students at UEL.

There were 300 guests at the event: industry professionals, press, stylists, casting agents and buyers.

The Bachelor in Fashion Design students created looks based on their learnings of innovative and traditional practices in fashion design and pattern cutting, in addition to computer-aided design.

Beatrice Newman, the university's head of fashion from the School of Arts and Creative Industries, said in a statement: “It is a great accomplishment to have UEL listed on the official LFW calendar.

“A sea of uniqueness, culture and diversity was praised by industry and, quite rightly, they’re eager to see what's next for Fashion at UEL for next year! It has undoubtedly been a great experience for the students who lived the moment and received praise for their work. Some are already starting their careers with orders for their designs coming through.”
