Fashion design students at Nottingham Trent University will see their work paraded on the catwalk during the first ever Nottingham Fashion Week.

Almost 100 first year students were asked produce contemporary garments as part of their first project challenge on the BA (Hons) Fashion Design course.

The results will go on the catwalk at the university’s Old Museum - as part of Nottingham Fashion Week's VIP Style Show - on Friday 29 April.

Nottingham Fashion Week - the first ever week-long fashion event for the city - is organised by Nottingham Business Improvement District (BID) and the Creative Quarter.

Taking place between 22 and 30 April, it is dedicated to showcasing the best of Nottingham fashion from local designers and independent and national retailers in the city, with various events and activities taking place.

Nottingham-born BBC1 Radio 1 DJ Alice Levine will present various shows during the week, including the Style Show Live at the Old Museum during 29 and 30 April.

"I am really looking forward to being a part of the first ever Nottingham Fashion Week. It is a real honour to be involved in an event in my hometown", said Alice.

Nicola Tidy, a director of the Nottingham BID, said: "Nottingham already has an excellent reputation for fashion and Nottingham Fashion Week will build on this.

"It will be a great event that should attract local people as well as people from further afield and show them what a great city Nottingham is."

It is the highest national honour for a UK university and recognises the institution’s world-class research. Pioneering projects to improve weapons and explosives detection in luggage, enable safer production of powdered infant formula, and combat food fraud, led to the prestigious award.
