There are lots of iconic and innovative brands that make Graduate Fashion Week possible, be it through giving their time and knowledge or sponsoring our awards. We're happy to tell you that the latest brand to lend their name to the GFW cause, is dunhill London!
Founded in 1893 in London by Alfred Dunhill, dunhill London is design-driven with style and purpose for an uncompromising stance on modern luxury. With over 70 stores in 16 countries spanning London, New York, Paris, Tokyo, Osaka, Shanghai, Beijing, Hong Kong and Dubai, dunhill is the leading luxury British menswear brand.
We're delighted to have a menswear brand on board, as all too often fashion is perceived as a primarily female industry- we're all about celebrating talent in whatever form it takes! Dunhill providing ad fighter pens to our judges, will definitely bolster the supportive and celebratory nature of GFW.
In true British style, dunhill London have released a collection of pens, inspired by the classically British spitfire aircraft. The Ad Fighter collection of fine writing instruments is inspired by the British icon of aviation! Each pen features a sleek, streamlined body that echoes the shape of the Spitfire’s distinctive nosecone, while the robust bombe clip is based on the design of a Spitfire propeller blade. The chamfered top of each pen features an elegant engraved ‘AD’ motif in gothic script.
We can't wait to see find out what the judges will be writing with these pens- with award prizes ranging from £10,000 to a years scholarship, they really do provide the launching platform graduates need.
