Last Saturday I went to check out the work of this year's graduates from the impressive range of Art and Design courses at Nottingham Trent University. There are shows open for both private and public view in June each year, with so much to see. It's no wonder the university has such a good reputation for design, and having been to these shows before I was keen to go along again.
The Theatre Design course at Nottingham Trent nurtures a wealth of talent and produces a fantastic display of work every year. This exhibition is my personal favourite to go and visit (I didn't take any photographs of the set designs but they were good too).
Of the fashion collections there were three that particularly stood out to me because of classic staple peices with smart tailoring, and timelessness. Their shapes reminiscent of those seen at Chloe and Jil Sander.

I also totally want this blazer;
Once again I came away with a bag full of business cards and exhibition booklets.
The public view is until 8th June, so if you're in Nottingham you've still got 2 days to take a look.
