REVEAL OF THE BOILER ROOM PHOTOSHOOT

REVEAL OF THE BOILER ROOM PHOTOSHOOT

A few weeks ago we held our Graduate Fashion Week photo shoot where we got to see eight of our graduates’ designs come to life with models and influencers wearing them. Given that many of our alumni go on to be some of the biggest names in fashion, we thought they deserved no one less than the renowned photographer Damian Foxe to shoot their designs.

For me London and GFW / International is at the heart of creativity and novelty but above all the fusion of the many cultures. It was an enormous honour to be able to show on that catwalk with so many graduates from different institutions. 

Exactly the next day after coming back from London, I received a phone call from the human resources of Dolce and Gabbana, that Friday I had an interview with Mr Domenico Dolce himself and the following Wednesday I was already working in the menswear office.
