A 22 year old student from March had her work chosen to be showcased at London Fashion Week.
Aimee Spies, who studied a fashion knitwear degree course at Nottingham Trent University, created six pieces for the catwalk show in the capital which has been known to springboard the careers of some of the most famous fashion designers in the UK.
Aimee, who hopes to find design work with a high street store, said: “It was a real honour. To be part of such a prestigious event was amazing.”
The former Neale Wade student added: “I had so much positive feedback on the day from people who said they had never see anything like it before.”
Aimee’s collection was one of six chosen from 34 students on the fashion knitwear and knitted textile design course.
