The Textile Institute is proud to sponsor the Fashanne Awards 2022.

The Fashanne Awards began in 2016 to provide a showcase for the design talent that abounds in our universities and to give the next generation a helping hand into the world of work.

Based in the East Midlands – not only the heart of the country but historically the heart of clothing, textile and shoe manufacture, these awards pitch the best 3rd year fashion design students against each other – all under one roof.

Fashanne attracts high level and sustained support from industry, universities and opinion makers with substantial media attention, TV, radio, print and social.

The aim of these awards is to be:
  • a byword for emerging talent
  • a conduit for employability
  • and THE place to see the very best designers of the future.

Participating universities choose their most talented students for the Fashanne Awards. Each university may enter 2 students per award category. The criteria for each award category will be submitted to the course leaders. All students taking part automatically are entered for the special award as well, namely – The People’s Choice (public vote) Award and The Daniel Hanson Award for Excellence.

There will be 8 Fashanne Award categories for 2022, which are; Womenswear Design, Menswear Design, Textile Design, Knitwear Design, Footwear & Accessory Design, Commercial Design, Sustainability and Athleisure Design. Also, The People’s Choice Award and The Daniel Hanson Award for Excellence.

A few weeks prior to the awards, the finalists will be asked to submit some 2D work (to include portfolio and some video footage) to Fashanne – specific details of requirements are available from the course leaders. Each entry will be listed on this website and voting will be enabled for the People’s Choice Award. Every student taking part will be required to have 2 complete outfits for the catwalk show. It is to be noted that judging will be from the 2D work submitted prior to the event. Textiles/Footwear & Accessories will also feature in the catwalk show – they will adapt where necessary!

Each winner will receive a Fashanne Award; a certificate; prize money of £200; and, for the sponsored awards, a paid internship with the sponsor of that particular award. The winner of each category will also win a complimentary one-year membership of The Textile Institute.
