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.
