Contemporary garments, all made in white, will be the focus of a showcase event organised by fashion design students at Nottingham Trent University. The White Project takes place on March 11 at Nottingham Contemporary and will feature work by first year students from the University's School of Art and Design.

About 100 students will each present an outfit, with a variety of designs inspired by everything from architecture and urban landscape to metamorphosis and the organic form – but everything in white.

Senior Lecturer in fashion design, Emma Prince, said: "We try to get our first year students to think about the shape, form and image of their designs, which is far easier when working in white. As they become more advanced they are introduced to colour. We have given students a completely open brief so there will be a really wide range of work on show."

Visitors to the event – which runs from 7-9pm – will be asked to pay a voluntary donation which will go toward the cost of the students' final year degree show.
