All entries will be pre-judged by our panel of judges over a 2-week period by 2D submissions – detailed below. We will then inform you if you have been successful and through to the final, where your designs will be showcased as part of our live awards event on 22nd June.


  • Any final year student reading a BA course in any fashion and textile related course can take part. Please ensure you read the criteria set by our judges before considering entering.
  • As De Montfort University, Nottingham Trent University and the University of Derby already partner Fashanne, they will be selecting their own students to take part and therefore students from these universities cannot enter individually.
  • There is NO FEE to enter.
  • All entries must be signed off by your course leader/ senior lecturer from your university.
  • If successful and through to the live event, 1-2 (we prefer 2!) of your designs will be modelled by professional models as part of the fashion show at the live event. We like all students’ designs to be showcased – even if fabric samples, 1 shoe – we can get creative!
  • You must be able to attend the live awards event on 22nd June 2023 at St Mary’s Church, Nottingham. Please be aware due to rehearsals etc, attendance will be required from around 10am that day.
