NOTTINGHAM TRENT STUDENTS SUCCEED AT GRADUATE FASHION WEEK

Nottingham Trent University triumphed once again at this year’s Graduate Fashion Week with Ella Nisbett, BA (Hons) Fashion Knitwear Design and Knitted Textiles, crowned as winner of both the Stuart Peters Visionary Knitwear Award and the Menswear Award.

Graduate Fashion Week (GFW), in collaboration with George, is the world’s leading event for fashion students and provides a platform for more than 1,000 graduates, from forty of the most influential UK and international universities, to showcase their work to industry. It also gives an insight into just what we’ll be wearing in the future as well as who will be designing it!

Also shortlisted for the awards show was NTU BA (Hons) Fashion Design student Rachel Siggee, whose bold printed menswear collection A is for Androgyny has received high praise since first appearing on the catwalk at Nottingham Trent University’s own graduate fashion shows.

Ella told us: “When my name was called for the knitwear award I was so amazed and happy. Then when the menswear award  was announced I was absolutely shocked. The menswear standard this year was so incredibly high, so to have won the award is overwhelming and incredible.”
