Drinking a small glass of wine every day could help prevent Alzheimer's disease, experts say. Scientists have discovered that 25ml of wine per day, getting a good night's sleep and increasing heart rate through exercise can help stimulate the brain's own cleaning system. Previous studies have shown that Alzheimer's disease is associated with the toxic build-up of proteins in the brain, which causes neuron cells to die.

For her graduate collection, Nadia combined fashion and science in a bid to raise awareness of Alzheimer’s; a disease which both her grandmother and great grandmother had suffered from. “My aim was to design a collection that meant a lot to me. It was emotional at some points,” the designer admits.
