Vicki Dean, Head of Fashion commented: "We have huge ambition at the University of Northampton and our graduate work just gets better and better so Silverstone provided a suitably iconic venue.

This is the best year we have ever had, with fantastic work not only in the surface design and catwalk collections but also in textile design and of course in footwear, being at the heart of the footwear industry in Northampton."

“This is a University which is globally renowned in subject specialisms such as Leather Technology and Fashion. The fashion show represents the highlight of the academic year for the Fashion and Textiles Department and turns out students who go on to work at leading fashion houses when they graduate.” University Vice Chancellor Professor Nick Petford
