Graduate Fashion Week receives a makeover

Let’s be honest, watching long awards shows is not really something that everyone gets excited about. One hour through it and you’re ready to bail, so it is great news for fashion enthusiasts in the UK, as there will be a significant change in the Graduate Fashion Week this year.

The new programme will still showcase the best and brightest from different fashion universities in the UK but this time the set will be focused on captivating the potential recruiters to possibly secure a good future for the talented graduates.

The four day event will no longer be just a boring awards that is cramped on the last day of the week. Instead, the schedule will allow to divide awards each day. Three to four awards will be announced per day and it will be followed by presentations that will showcase the works of not just the winner but also nominees of each award categories.

They will still save the best for last because on the final night, the “Best of Graduate Fashion Week” will be shown along with the with the winner of the George Gold Award, Women and Men’s knitwear, Textiles and last but not the least, the International Awards.

The event will take place at Earl’s Court 2 is happening from the 2nd to the 5th of June. It is definitely bigger and better and centred on helping new designers in the real world. Chairman of the Graduate Fashion Week, Rob Templeman is enthusiastic about this change saying that this time will be a more intimate experience where everyone can appreciate the creativity and talent of the students.

It will be sponsored by George at Asda which will be their third year of sponsorship. The George team has long been an advocate of fashion and believes in the talents of the newcomers in the industry.
