STUDENTS from Nottingham Trent University have had the opportunity to showcase their designs and creations at intu Victoria Centre this month as part of the centre’s Autumn Winter fashion season.
First-year BA Fashion Design students from the university dressed mannequins with their outwear designs for shoppers to visit throughout the week.
Nicola McCabe, marketing manager at intu Victoria Centre, said: “Fashion is all about personal expression and nothing shows this more than the fantastic pieces designed by the students at Nottingham Trent University.
“We’ve loved showcasing some of the amazing work produced by these students during our Autumn Winter fashion season and look forward to seeing more of their designs as they progress through their studies.”
Emma Prince, senior lecturer on BA (Hons) Fashion Design in the School of Art & Design at NTU said: “This has been a fantastic opportunity to showcase the work and development of our students to intu Victoria Centre visitors.
“On the BA (Hons) Fashion Design course we have strong links with many of the high street stores that are here in intu Victoria Centre. We actively encourage industry-facing projects, competitions and work experience right through the three years of the course, so that our students are in touch with the demands and workings of the UK fashion market.
“It’s really fitting that we’ve had the chance to give an insight into the work of the next generation of designers who will go on to play their part in developing the looks and collections of the future.”
The display also supports intu’s own fashion campaign, working alongside leading retailers including: House of Fraser, John Lewis, Monsoon, New Look Men, Quiz, Superdry and Topshop to showcase the latest trends. An eye-catching giant ‘look book’ has also been installed on the mall; taking inspiration from scrapbooking and magazine style mood boards and will be in situ until the end of October.
