Thirty-two final year students on the contour fashion degree course at De Montfort University unveiled their designs in front of the fashion industry in a spectacular end of year show at the Stardust Club in Coalville.

The show was the largest and most elaborate to date. With more than 30 graduate collections on display the audience saw work ranging from lingerie to swimwear, bridalwear to evening wear.

The Contour Fashion degree covers swimwear, lingerie, structured underwear, sportswear, beachwear, leisurewear and basques and has an increasing interest in medical support wear, structured bandages and specialist anatomical garments.

As the world's only provider of degree-based courses covering the art of corsetry and bra design and cutting, the contour fashion unit has unrivalled expertise.

Many graduates find their first job as designers and buyers for household names such as Triumph, Primark, House of Fraser, Janet Reger, Next, Debenhams and John Lewis.

A number of graduates work abroad for international lingerie and fashion companies, while others set-up their own lingerie design companies.
