The event, which will showcase final year fashion students’ work, is being attended by leading designers such as Leon Max. Students, who traditionally move on to work at leading fashion houses when they graduate, will be keen for their work to catch the eye of design houses attending. The University of Northampton Fashion show aims to provide employment opportunities to students.

The show will highlight the strong pedigree the Fashion and Textiles division has in leather goods and footwear – an industry traditionally associated with Northamptonshire. Representatives from footwear brands and tanners such as Church’s, Grensons, Dr Martens, Lobb’s, Pittard’s and Jeffery-West will be there.
