We started selling tees from a camper van in 1988 and it’s been quite a journey, travelling the world from coastal towns to big cities. Our sense of adventure, fun and spontaneity is what makes us who and what we are. We are definitely not just ordinary, and neither are our clothes. We proudly develop designs that are modern and stylish, clothes for all the family. They are crafted thoughtfully, with our customer in mind; with unique details and to the highest standards. We are conscious that all of our products are created mindfully; driving for sustainability, treading lightly wherever we go.

The Fat Face team is thrilled to once again have the chance to be involved in Graduate Fashion Week. As a brand built on quality and attention to detail and based in Great Britain, we acknowledge the significance of design, originality and creativity. We welcome the opportunity to support and recognise the emerging talent of our British and International design institutions. GFW provides a distinctive platform for elite graduates to show their work at the beginning of their careers. We are proud and privileged to be working with GFW.
