Fashanne Autumn/Winter Newsletter 2022


We are very excited to announce that designs by finalists of FASHANNE have been unveiled as part of a permanent exhibition at East Midlands Airport.

The stunning 24 piece photography display shows off the creations of final year fashion and textile students from Universities that have participated in the awards over the years. The images will be displayed in stages with the first three already up in the Immigration Hall, and more images going up in Departures and the West Pier from early 2023.

The display forms part of the airport’s ambition to highlight the regions rich clothing and lace heritage and legacy.





Planning is well under way for our 2023 live awards show taking place on Thursday 22nd June at the beautiful St Mary’s Church in Nottingham. We have some very exciting ideas which for now we’ll keep up our sleeves, but we are very pleased to announce we have added a brand-new awards category!

The new category High Street Menswear, sponsored by Next, will allow designers to freely work with a more fluid and modern aesthetic suited to everyday lives.

We can’t wait to see the designs!



We are also very pleased to announce that Nottingham BID have come onboard as sponsor of the Daniel Hanson Award for Excellence for 2023.

“A worthy tribute to Daniel Hanson, whose passion for textiles grew out of a love of unclaimed and unloved charity shop fashion in the 1980s, this award celebrates the young fashion designers who seek inspiration in Nottingham’s diverse and exciting culture and counterculture. Nottingham has always been, and continues to be, a city of pioneers and home-grown success stories. Daniel’s tailoring business grew to achieve international acclaim; we look forward with excitement to see where the career of this year’s award winner will go next.”  Amy Coulson, Sponsorship, Events and Project Manager

We are thrilled to have their support!
