Our Year One BA (Hons) Fashion Design and BA (Hons) Fashion Accessory Design students have had the fantastic opportunity to exhibit their work at the launch of Nottingham's 48 Hours of Fashion event.

48 Hours of Fashion takes place annually across the city of Nottingham, bringing together free catwalk shows, in-store events, master classes, stylist top tips and trend advice. Organised by the Nottingham Business Improvement District (BID), the event aims to raise awareness of the range of retailers and businesses in the city.

It's so important to have opportunities like this, as they allow you to showcase your work.

Over 30 students exhibited their work in a catwalk show on the opening night, which took place on the Old Market Square. They showcased garments and accessories from their first research, design and manufacturing project, alongside collections from retailers including Ted Baker, Topshop and French Connection.

Fashion Design student Leanne Westbury commented: "The highlight was seeing the first garments I have made out on the catwalk for the public to see. It's so important to have opportunities like this, as they allow you to showcase your work."
