Fashion Designers of the Future Awards


Fashanne are pleased to announce that we are hosting 2 x Online Awards for 2020 to recognise this year’s 3rd year students’ amazing talent, who would have ordinarily taken part in the event earlier this year. Unfortunately we could not hold the event due to the Covid-19 pandemic, yet we now can look forward to next year – 6th May 2021 – we hope you will join us!

The 2 Awards are: “The Judge’s Choice Award” and “The People’s Choice Award”.

Please go to our ‘Online Awards 2020‘ page to view the entries and place your vote.

RESULTS: The Online Awards film will go live on our website and shared on social media on 30th July at 7.30pm. Make sure you tune in! The film will showcase all the students’ designs, the Judges comments and of course the 2 winners hosted by our founder BBC’s Anne Davies.

Fashion is so much more than clothes…it’s about the way we think, the aspirations we harbor, the way we live and the way we want to live.

It’s about our future as much as our present and our past, and to reach out to the next generation in the best way possible is possibly the only way of ensuring that the future is what we all want it to be.

I hope you are all keeping well in these strange Covid-19 times. This year we have had to adapt, yet I am pleased we can offer 2 online awards for the 2020 3rd year students that have worked so hard. Please vote for your favourite and join us for the results, the talent is always outstanding!

A big thank you to our sponsors and supporters for their continued support. We hope you can join us in May 2021!

Keep well and Best Wishes,

FASHANNE: Fashion Designers of the Future Awards – What it’s all about

Fashanne 2018 Highlights

Fashanne 2018 was our third awards event and the students designs were outstanding!

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.

The awards 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.

As seen on the BBC…
