Tresham Fashion Student Launches Own Clothing Brand


nang storyTresham student, Navinder Nangla, is seeing his hard work pay off as his own clothing line ‘Nang’ starts to gain recognition. Nav had previously completed a sports qualification at Tresham before deciding to pursue his real passions, fashion and design. At the age of 19, Nav enrolled onto the fashion & clothing diploma and is now using those skills to benefit his clothing line. Nav said:

“From the age of about 16 I became more and more interested in fashion and design. I am a creative person, I like drawing cartoons and I am always doodling. Whilst I was doing the sports course, I was already working on my own t-shirt designs and getting compliments from friends. It was a natural step to start studying in this area and I have really enjoyed my time on the course. The facilities at Tresham are good, and I have been able to learn new skills in stitching and embroidery, as well as develop my design ideas.”

Nav has been able to increase his range of clothing, and is now producing sweaters, beanies, long sleeve polos and t-shirts. He has taken inspiration from established New York skateboarding shop and fashion label ‘Supreme’.

“‘Supreme’ is definitely a brand that I look up to, and hope to be as big as them in the future. I am working hard on creating an image for ‘Nang Clothing’, which draws on lots of things; like rap music, skateboarding, street-wear, and even cartoons.”

Kettering skateboard and clothing shop, Chopper, has recently agreed to stock items from Nav’s clothing line. In addition to this, has just been launched, allowing for the opportunity for wider promotion:

“It’s not just me that’s doing all of the work, I have had a lot of really good help with developing the brand. Tresham photography students Lewis Robinson and Brett Taylor have been really supportive with producing promotional films and photographs for the website, and this is an area, along with social media, that always needs attention.”

A number of other shops have started to express an interest in ‘Nang’, so Nav is expecting to stay busy and continue to develop the clothing line. After completing his diploma, Nav is considering going to university to study either fashion or graphic design.
