Next Live Event: 2024


Fashanne 2023

“DESIGNERS OF THE FUTURE – What happens when design, ingenuity, and creativity collide? And, with it, passion for slow, sustainable and considered fashion? Fashanne is a force to be reckoned with – a place to showcase the brilliant design talents, quietly bubbling away in our universities, designers ready to shout from the rooftops about the topics that will directly impact on future generations. This year it was ‘Earth’ and, boy, did they shout… What an incredible, thought-provoking and uplifting event (and a joy to shoot!).” Rachael Connerton Photography
