Budding designers from Leeds will get the chance to showcase their work in front of American Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour.

Young talent from Leeds College of Art and Leeds Beckett University will be taking part in the Northern Youth Fashion Show, featuring designs of students from a number of regional colleges and universities.

The fashion show is in aid of refugee charities the Xavier Project and Refugee Action York and will also be attended by editor-in-chief of The Guardian, Katharine Viner.

Event organiser, Ellie Wintour, said: “We wanted to host an event that would highlight the creative talent of students and support the community by fundraising for local charities.

“It’s fantastic to have Anna and Katharine on board to help make it a success. We are pleased with the positive response we’ve had so far. It’s going to be a night to remember.”

The event will include a talk with Ms Wintour followed by a question-and-answer session led by Ms Viner, plus a champagne reception and live music.

It has been organised by HARD Magazine, a fashion publication at the University of York, and sponsored by train company Grand Central.

A spokesperson for Grand Central said: “The Northern Youth Show is an opportunity for us to once again demonstrate our commitment to young people, as well as their colleges and universities that are based along our routes.”

It will take place at the University of York’s Central Hall on January 29.

Tickets cost £30 or £15 for students and are available at www.yusu.org/tickets
