DMU wows Graduate Fashion Week crowds with show of pride in their City of Champions

Graduate Fashion Week is the Premier League of shows for new fashion talent – so it was the perfect venue for De Montfort University Leicester (DMU) to celebrate Leicester City’s incredible title win.

DMU students sent their models down the catwalk in London’s trendy Brick Lane wearing their latest designs accessorised by LCFC flags, scarves and hats and a banner declaring: “Leicester City Premier League Champions 2016”.

As the strains of the Post-Horn Gallop – the tune which LCFC’s players run out to – were played, the lights were dimmed and the audience burst into applause as the models paid their own special  tribute to the club.

“Fashion can be so serious, I felt this would be a lift and it got such a positive reaction.. We put on a really good, strong show. Everybody has been wowed.”
