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 times. Last year we went online and offered 2 online awards for the 2020 3rd year students that have worked so hard. Please take a look at the film below featuring all their work, the judge’s comments and what the winners had to say.

This year, 2021, we are going online again, with 9 awards on offer to the selected finalists. Prizes to include those all-important internships to gain that valuable industry experience. Keep an eye on this website and our social handles for further information and dates.

A big thank you to our sponsors, universities, judges and supporters for their continued support.

Keep well and Best Wishes,

FILM: What is Fashanne 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…
