The Finale; Graduate Fashion Week 2015

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!

Britain’s Got Talent; Graduate Fashion Week Exhibition

SAM_1213

I’m still blown away by the wonders of Graduate Fashion Week after attending last week at Earls Court. It was an eye opener for me to see the number of universities throughout the UK that seem to have excellent fashion courses. As a Londoner there is always the bad habit of thinking that anything outside of London will have a tough time competing with the fruits of the capital. My regionism was definitely challenged and it was great to see the creative talent that this whole country is blessed with not to mention the tangible excitement in the air of graduates showcasing their designs to the public for the first time! This is only part of the exhibition as there were so many amazing pieces I had split my coverage in to two parts with the second post coming soon.
