GFW 2017


SCROLL DOWN

GFW 2017


Last year,  Graduate Fashion Week celebrated 25 years of being one of the world’s most important sources of new talent for the global design industry. Fashion supports 797,000 jobs domestically alone, contributing £26 billion to the economy. Graduate Fashion Week is a crucial part of the dynamic – fuelling innovation in all parts of the fashion business. It is a showcase for the imagination and possibilities – shaping the way fashion works as well as looks.

To mark its 25th anniversary, the first lifetime patrons of Graduate Fashion Week were announced: Christopher Bailey MBE of Burberry, Dame Vivienne Westwood DBE RDI, Nick Knight OBE and Victoria Beckham OBE. To mark this year’s event, similarly celebrated names from the ranks of former University alumni joined them – each of them an industry success story. Graduate Fashion Week took place from the 5th-8th June, culminating in the globally prestigious Graduate Fashion Week Gala Awards Show.

The British fashion school system has created an environment that drives young designers to try new ideas without feeling like they have to fit into a predetermined way of doing things,” says Christopher Bailey MBE, the first winner of what is now endowed as the Graduate Fashion Week Gold Award, 25 years ago. “It’s a very exciting environment to learn in”.

About the Charity


About the Charity


The world's leading event celebrating the creativity of students and graduates within fashion.

Graduate Fashion Week is a charity organisation founded in 1991 by Jeff Banks CBE, Vanessa Denza MBE and John Walford to unify both UK and International universities and create a stronghold for the creative industries. 

Showcasing the work of over 1,000 of the very best students and graduates from the most influential and inspiring universities around the world, Graduate Fashion Week represents the future of creative design talent. Attracting 30,000 guests each June, the annual event features 22 catwalk shows, exhibitions from over 40 universities and an acclaimed Gala Award Show alongside a packed live talks and workshops schedule featuring leading names from the fashion industry. 

An unrivalled platform for the promotion of new talent, Graduate Fashion Week bridges the gap between graduation and employment and is responsible for launching the careers of some of the most successful designers of our time including Christopher Bailey MBE, who was the winner of the first ever Graduate Fashion Week Gold Award, Stella McCartney, Giles Deacon, Matthew Williamson and Julien Macdonald.

"I do believe that British students are flourishing because you have the best education system in England that gives Art & Design students the freedom to think, to dream and to do." Alber Elbaz
