Fashion 20ten

I previously posted the behind the scenes from the press day exhibiting the Nottingham Trent Fashion Design students work. It was there annual fashion show last night and it absolutely took my breath away. I have hundreds of pictures I couldn't possibly share with you all. But I have picked my favorites from the evening and split them into trends so you can see more! Unfortunately I was unable to get any pictures of one of my amazing friend Vicky Hunts outfits as they walked a different way to where I was sitting! I'll wait for the professional ones to share her work!

The written introduction to all the collections was as beautiful as the clothing;

We are not just designers
We are pattern cutters...illustrators...makers.
Our personalities, enthusiasm and characters
unite us to challenge and express ourselves not
only as unique individuals, but also as a
corporate identity.
Together we make 20ten Fashion Design.
Upon entering the evening displayed center stage was my other friend Steph Dales work. Honestly words cannot describe how beautiful her 3 product collection was. A wedding dress with layered tulle took the spotlight, sitting next to a white exaggerated shoulder dress and a cute sophisticated grey cocktail dress. Her illustrations were just perfection, girly and some of the best work i've ever seen.
Other work was displayed in a very feminine way with sweets, stripes, candy colour palettes and beautiful pale blue drawers.
Accessories were umbrellas, books, oversized bubble balloon necklaces and un-matching shoes!

  37. Hi Char lovely blog and pictures from the show. Everyone did so well!

    Really liked the photos you did for a couple of my outfits and if possible wondered if you could email me the files? Would be much appreciated as I had to sit at the back and didn't get chance to take any of my own.
    (final two designs in your dollhouse dance section)
    many thanks,
