Highlighting the menswear at the Nottingham Trent BA (Hons) Fashion Show during Graduate Fashion Week 2014

The first menswear collection on the Nottingham Trent catwalk was by Kim Louise Sutcliffe with her statement shark print.

Making a practical statement were the many oversized pockets hanging loosely from shirts and jackets. Lots of layering and colour accents of blues and golden tans .

Lucine Sandiford juxtaposed pretty pastels with a sporty look.

Ready for the race, each outfit was numbered on long cagoule style tops, shorter bomber jacket, bowling shirt and a flowing silk boxer's robe.

 Xi Lin's collection made an impact with all the models in red down to their little cotton socks. A repeated print of Chairman Mao gave a hint red was chosen for its association with communism.

Textures included shiny patent strips on an overcoat and oversized embossed spots on matching shorts and jacket.

Last but definitely not least was Aimee Dunn who won the prestigious GFW 2014 menswear award for her black and white collection.

 The inspiration behind the collection was Maggie Thatcher and the coalminers' strike hence the Maggie Thatcher jumper below.

Statement pieces include those with  embroidered slogans on the back saying 'Thatcher snatched our milk, now she is stealing our bread'.  Chunky knitted scarves were embellished with rows of beads
