Models learn the latest fashion craze... walking like a sheep
It was hard to say who looked more comfortable on the catwalk - the models strutting their stuff clad in wool hats and oufits or the sheep walking by their side.
Farm animals rarely make it far in fashion circles but at Spitalfields City Farm in Buxton Street they got a chance to share the limelight yesterday at a wool fashion show.
Crowds gathered to see the creative designs of London College fashion student Melissa Roberts, with the models sporting clothes made from lambs’ wool, Shetland wool and merino wool.
The sheep of course supplied their own costumes.
They shared space on a straw-bale lined catwalk for the show which was organised along with the Campaign for Wool, which was launched by Prince Charles five years ago to promote the UK’s wool industry.

The farm also organised a host of wool-related events including sheep-shearing demonstrations, a sheep race and a guess the weight of the fleece competition.
