Rosie the GoGoDragon! is the star of the catwalk at Norwich fashion show

She is one of 84 dragons soon to take to Norwich’s streets in the GoGoDragons! charity art trail which starts Sunday and is organised by children’s charity Break and Wild in Art.

Illona Clark, the artist who designed Rosie, said: “The Cottage Hair and Beauty wanted a dragon that would represent both strength and femininity.
