Millie Betito, a final year fashion student at Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU), has been selected by a panel of external judges to send six of her creations down the runway at Graduate Fashion Week at Earls Court on Tuesday of this week.

Her designs are inspired by structural objects such as furniture, lighting, ceramics and buildings using fabric to create volume, texture and layering with pleating.

This high-profile annual event has previously launched the careers of John Galliano and Stella McCartney. Outfits from MMU's 2009 graduate catwalk show have been spotted on pop stars Lady Gaga and Marina and the Diamonds.

Ms Betito, 22, tells People: "It's every fashion student's dream to show at Graduate Fashion Week and what I have been working towards for the past three years."
