Nottingham Contemporary hosts Trent fashion show

Nottingham’s contemporary gallery went white for a Trent fashion design project.

Over 30 models strutted their stuff last Thursday around the gallery’s latest exhibition: ‘Star City: The Future Under Communism’.

First year fashion design students have spent the past five months designing outfits based around a white theme that incorporated form, structure, silhouette and shape.

Jasmin O’Hara modelled at the show and said it was really good fun. She added: “It was really about enjoying yourself and showing off people’s fantastic work. I was so amazed at how many people turned up.”

Some of the designs were fantastic and really showed off the great work that Trent students do.

There were two shows in total, each attracting a full gallery of spectators, including journalists, students and members of the public who were all eager to see the designs and show their support.

Duncan Cameron, an NTU architectural technology student who went to watch the show, said: “It was really well organised and I definitely didn’t think it would be that professional for a first year show. The clothes themselves were out of the ordinary but original and eye-catching.”
