Each year, the international presence at Graduate Fashion Week has grown exponentially. When the GFW International element first began, launched by International Trustee Adrien Yakimov Roberts, there were only four universities from around the world participating. That number has since swelled to 40 universities which will be present at GFW19 across the international exhibition and International Catwalk Show.
