Live Event

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. In 2020, we went online last minute and were able to offer 2 online awards (The Judge’s Choice & The People’s Choice Awards) for the 3rd year students that had worked so hard. The film created featured all of the students’ designs, the judge’s comments and what the winners had to say. Fashanne Awards 2020 Film.

For 2021, we went online again, with 9 awards on offer to the selected finalists. Prizes included those all-important internships to gain that valuable industry experience. Fashanne Awards 2021 Film.

We are planning our live event for next year, please do join us on 5th May 2022 at St. Mary’s Church, Nottingham.

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

Keep well and Best Wishes,
