Five talented BA (Hons) Fashion Design alumni from Nottingham Trent University (NTU) had their collections featured this year at Singapore’s internationally recognised fashion event, Singapore Fashion Week (SGFW).

The five-day, high profile event was hosted at Singapore’s National Gallery, a new visual arts institution that houses the largest public collection of modern art in Southeast Asia. Headliners included the internationally acclaimed Naeem Khan, Beijing-based haute couturier Guo Pei, and London-based Malaysian designer, Han Chong.

The show featured collections from (Hons) Fashion Design alumni Olivia Barclay, Stacie Horton, Chloe Jackson, and Charlotte Rollings. A collection from Koki Abe, a graduate from Tokyo Mode Gakuen who recently won a scholarship to study at NTU, also featured on the catwalk. All five students were selected after their collections starred at London’s Graduate Fashion Week in June 2016, with Chloe winning the prestigious N Brown Catwalk Textiles Award for her stunning womenswear collection.

Stacie Horton, who is currently developing her design work as part of a Masters course, told us: “I am so happy my work got to be featured at SGFW. It was really exciting news - I’ve seen a few pictures on Instagram which makes me so proud.”

Drawing inspiration from international experiences, cultures, and everyday living and nature, the alumni made their mark on the catwalk amongst other young talent.

Gilly Staples, BA (Hons) Fashion Design Course Leader commented: “Their outstanding work and consistent achievements in their final year have got them to where they are today. They have been a great representation for the course and the university.

“Their work will certainly be an inspiration to many, I couldn’t be more pleased for them.”
