The International aspect of Graduate Fashion Week has grown exponentially since it was first conceived only a few years ago by International Trustee Adrien Yakimov Roberts. This year, 40 universities from around the world will be coming to London to participate in GFW19 — the world’s largest showcase of undergraduate fashion talent from disciplines like design, styling, photography, communications and more.
International universities will be represented in the International Exhibition as well as the International Fashion Award Show, sponsored by Gap Inc. The Gap Inc. GFW International Fashion Award invites these fashion institutes to enter their best and most innovative student for the opportunity to showcase their collection at Graduate Fashion Week.
The winner of The International Fashion Award sponsored by Gap Inc. will be announced during the Gala Award Show that same evening, and will receive a prize of £1,000, alongside the opportunity to showcase for free at London Fashion Week SS20 under Fashion Scout.
