FASHANNE: Fashion Designers of the Future Awards 2022 announces much-anticipated return to spectacular live event

The who’s who of the fashion world will be descending on St Mary’s Church, Nottingham on Thursday May 5th to celebrate the amazing fashion design talent of our next generation. 

Joined by legendary fashion designer, Patrick Grant, and leading industry experts from Paul Smith, John Smedley, NEXT and Pentland to name but a few, the Fashanne Awards celebrate up-and-coming design talent in the historical heartland of the UK’s clothing and textiles industry.

Set up by BBC presenter and journalist Anne Davies in 2016, this year marks a return to a live event after two years online due to Covid and this year’s event is set to be the most exciting yet!

With over 10 award categories and hundreds of entries, the competition is set to be fierce, but it’s not just about winning; Fashanne is helping to bridge the gap between education and employment with internships offered to the winners by the many global brands that sponsor and judge the awards, helping to nurture emerging young design talent in a fiercely competitive industry.

Fashanne founder, Anne Davies said

“Fashanne, Fashion Designers of the Future Awards exists to reach out a helping hand to the next generation and connect them with industry – to the benefit of both. It’s committed to championing inclusivity, diversity and inclusion and, as it goes into its sixth year, will continue to promote and showcase the huge talent in our universities.”

Featuring a live catwalk show showcasing some of the most innovative and exciting fashion ideas from the next generation of talent, incredible circus-themed entertainment, fabulous food and drink, Fashanne will also be raising money for Rainbows the children’s and young people’s hospice.
