Creative designs from a new generation of Northern Ireland fashion stars hit the catwalk during a spectacular show at the University of Ulster.

Funky knits, flowing gowns and bold prints were all unveiled as part of the 2011 Ulster Fashion Show last night in Belfast.

The annual catwalk event, sponsored by Victoria Square, showcased edgy designs from first, second and third year students at the University.

Among the students displaying designs was Grainne Campbell from Newry, who was inspired by planes, trains and automobiles to create her Loco collection.

"Transportation is always on the move, seeking new features and ideas, just like fashion," she said.

Janet Coulter, senior lecturer in Textiles and Fashion, added: "It's tremendous to see how students, working across hybrid disciplines, create their own fabrics to generate original outcomes."

The fashion event is part of the Ulster Festival of Art and Design that runs until June 12.

The festival also hosts the students' End of Year Show, the annual large-scale exhibition, which is a showcase for emerging talented artists and an ideal opportunity for visitors to buy work from young up-and-coming stars.

Based at Ulster's Belfast campus in York Street, it covers a broad spectrum of the art and design world, from the glamour of fashion to the latest in gaming technology.
