The third annual East Midlands fashion awards at which students from Universities in Nottingham, Derby, Loughborough, Leicester and Northampton share the catwalk to showcase their unique talents takes place on the 21st June at St Mary’s Church in the Lace Market, Nottingham.

Also taking centre stage this year are Nottingham College’s Level 2 Professional Chef Diploma and Level 3 Hospitality Supervision students.  The students, who normally ply their skills to the public through the Adams Restaurant, will be catering for, and at, the event.

It’s the perfect opportunity to showcase the next generation of chefs and front of house talent at an exciting event that that raises Nottingham’s profile further still.

The Fashanne Awards, created and fronted by BBC East Midlands presenter Anne Davies, continues its trend setting with this year involving models from all walks of life including those that have, and are, carrying disabilities such as double gold Paralympic Richard Whitehead, BBC national weather presenter, Lucy Martin, and school motivational speaker, Sian Green, all of whom are not only delighted to participate but to be able to showcase the designers’ fashions and show that whoever you are and whatever you have to deal with, there’s a place for everyone.

Again, this innovative event has involved yet another larger-than-life celebrity from the fashion industry.  Following on from Gok Wan’s involvement last year, this year sees British Fashion Designer, Patrick Grant, from The Great British Sewing Bee, take his place as head judge.

The event costs just £40, the evening starts at 6.30pm and ends at 10pm.  For more details, check out
