Award-winning Ilkeston designer Fazane Malik is to give 12 lucky ladies the chance to model her collections at Nottingham Racecourse’s Ladies’ Day on Saturday May 9.

There will be three catwalk events for the 4,000 visitors expected in a fashion marquee where stands will showcase Nottingham businesses.

These include Ragdale Hall and East Midlands Designer Outlet which are both supplying prizes for the best dressed competition and New College Nottingham which will be bringing along designs by some of its students.

Fazane said:“I am really passionate about celebrating women of all sizes and shapes and feel that often when women watch catwalk shows with beautiful slim models they feel like can’t live up to those expectations.

“I want women to understand that I design for all different types of women ... not just models and I think winning this competition will be a lovely experience for them. Who wouldn’t want to be given the chance to be styled in designer clothing, made-over by professionals, get to strut their stuff on the catwalk … and perhaps catch a horse race or two.”
