Supported by Burberry’s Christopher Bailey, fashion royalty Vivienne Westwood, and the astronomically successful Victoria Beckham, Graduate Fashion Week has gone from strength to strength. And this year’s celebration of young fashion talent looks like it’ll be the best yet. Set over four days, 22 catwalk shows will showcase work from over 60 of the UK’s top fashion universities.
The largest event in the world dedicated to undergraduate fashion, it has launched the careers of Stella McCartney, Giles Deacon and Matthew Williamson, with Christopher Bailey being the first ever recipient of the Gold Award back in those heady days of 1991. So it really is the chance to see some of the UK’s best fash talent before their shows are invite-only, darling.
In addition to the shows, there will be a series of talks and workshops from the likes of designer Holly Fulton, artist Daniel Lismore and the indomitable Hillary Alexander.
Here are just some of the incredible fashion designers you can see:
Graduate Fashion Week is at East Works Studio, 65/75 Whitechapel Rd, E1 1DU. Jun 4-7.
