Nottingham Lace Inspired Collection

Return to the main Designer Maker blog page

As someone who was born in Nottingham and, after living in many other areas of the country, someone who is now living back in the town, I’m always interested in local history, especially anything related to design. I was therefore particularly interested in the Oasis womenswear collection inspired by the Nottingham lace archives at Nottingham Trent University. The retailer developed a 25 piece collection including dresses, shoes and accessories and students studying Fashion Design at the university also had the chance to have their own design included as part of the collection. The winner was Robert Goddard and his dress can be seen below. 

Other items from the collection can also be seen below. 

What a great way of celebrating the town’s history, alongside giving opportunities for new, young designers in the area.
