A combination of womenswear, menswear and plus-size collections, will take to the catwalk - with themes ranging from ‘Unconscious art of construction’ to ‘Distortion and Exposure of the Female and Form’ and ‘Who am I – Christian Faith’.

BA (Hons) Fashion Design course leader Kathryn Sanders says, “It’s a very exciting time of year for us, and an opportunity to demonstrate what creative fashion designers we produce at Solent. The students have worked extremely hard researching, designing and producing their unique collections of outfits and are looking forward to presenting their innovative designs on the catwalk.”

The event is produced in collaboration with the University’s fashion promotion, fashion PR, fashion photography, fashion styling, digital music, make-up and hair design and media, culture & production courses.
