Cambridge Style Week 2016 - First Night of Fashion

CSW 2016 Night of Fashion kicked off with a bang last night with its first catwalk show, combining a selection designers, new collections and well-loved Cambridge boutiques. 

 

TV presenter and actor Karl Ude-Martinez welcomed the guests to CSW 2016 in the beautiful setting of the Guildhall in the centre of Cambridge. The show was inspired by the upcoming Spring/Summer trends with a range of different collections modelled by real men and women from the local area.

We were also treated to a beautiful dance by Cambridge University Dance team in both halves of the show.
