ART and design students in Darlington are to exhibit the work that marks the culmination of their studies.

About 40 National Diploma Fashion and Clothing and Design students from Darlington College of Technology are putting the finishing touches to their creations.

They will display their work at a catwalk extravaganza at Darlington Arts Centre's theatre on Tuesday, at 7.30pm.

This year the theme is Chaos and the show will feature 25 scenes.

College tutor Lynne Waterfall-Brown said: "I am very impressed. The students have worked extremely hard and shown a great deal of endeavour and energy in producing garments that reflect individual expression and push the boundaries of the fashion world."

All students will exhibit their work in the Art Centre foyer and glass corridor. The exhibition will be open from 10am to 11pm, from Monday until July 1, with a private viewing between 6pm and 7pm on Tuesday.
