Fashanne 2018

Wow! What an amazing event it was this year! This was our 3rd year of these awards and Fashanne 2018 exceeded all our expectations on so many levels. The graduate’s designs were outstanding this year and our team of judges had their work cut out.  Congratulations to our winners: Freya Whittaker (University of Derby) winner of the Fashion Design Award, Stephanie Douglas (De Montfort University) winner of the Footwear & Accessory Award and The People’s Choice Award, Alice Beadle (Nottingham Trent University) winner of the Knitwear Design Award and Aoife Thomas (Nottingham Trent University) winner of the Textile Design Award. A big thank you to Patrick Grant, Katie Greenyer, Daniel Hanson, Simon Platts, Kieran Pathak-Mould and Humphrey Barrett for their efforts and expertise on the day.

Thank you to our sponsors: NEXT, The Tier Hairdressing, Lace Market Hotel, Eden PR and Office Twelve.

This year’s event was made even more special by our wonderful guest models. As part of our brand, we strongly believe in diversity and inclusivity and for Richard Whitehead MBE, BBC’s Lucy Martin and Sian Green-Lord to join us on the catwalk was fantastic! A special thank you goes to them.

Our next awards will be on Wednesday 22nd and Thursday 23rd April 2020 at St. Mary’s Church, Nottingham.
