IMG_20150602_135935061

The final part of my Graduate Fashion Week experience involved the exhibition – where I could literally have spent all day admiring the innovative, colourful and quirky creations. It was great to find out about the talent coning from Fashion Schools that I was not previously familiar with, especially Nottingham Trent and Northumbria University. I also attended the International showcase bringing together the worlds best emerging design talent. Graduate experience is always the highlight of my fashion year and am already counting down to the next one!

Graduate Fashion Week Awards Gala Show

IMG_20140603_204359751_HDR

I attended the Graduate Fashion Week Awards Gala before I went on holiday last week and this amazing sartorial experience as well as GFW as a whole made my holiday shopping experience in the US comparatively dull. Innovation was everywhere and I have the utmost respect for all of the students who were able to create such striking and innovative designs. The Awards which were  presented by Hilary Alexander, Philip Treacy, Zoe Hardman and judged by British Fashion Council‘s Sarah Mower; designers Peter Pilotto, Philip Treacy and Louise Gray; Sara Maino of Italian Vogue; and Fiona Lambert, vice-president of George at Asda. I think the students were able to get the right balance between wearable pieces that still wowed on the runway. My highlights are below- if I had space for a hundred more pictures I would have included more  or less everything I saw but I managed to bring it down to this;
