A LIVERPOOL-born fashion student received rave reviews after he debuted his collection to a star -studded reception.

More than 500 guests viewed Paul Beckett's designs on the catwalk at the London College of Fashion graduates show at the V&A. And a further 4,500 people watched worldwide over the internet.

Guests at the London exhibition included quirky singer Marina from Marina and the Diamonds, fashion designer and Strictly Come Dancing star JoWood, and British accessories designer Lulu Guinness.

Paul, 30, who grew up in Anfield, said: "Showing to so many influential people was amazing and a great opportunity. I've had a lot of interest from stylists and magazines to use my collection for shoots, including some really high profile stuff that I can't talk about yet -but it's all been very positive."

The student's unique collection was also checked out by hundreds of fashion industry insiders looking for new talent.
