We are delighted to announce that Tu are partnering up with Graduate Fashion Week for our 25th Anniversary!
Partnering up with us for the first time we will see one lucky student win a scholarship with Tu at Sainsbury’s . The winner will design a womenswear collection for the brand, which will be in store for Spring/Summer 17. They will also have unprecedented access to Fashion Designer Holly Fulton, through a bespoke mentorship programme. This includes inviting the winner to her design studio for a mentoring session and a creative meeting to discuss the winner’s collection for Tu! As well as this they will be coached by Sainsbury’s in-house team, offering full insight into the dynamic business of fashion from buying through to design, as they launch their first collection.
"We are delighted to work with Graduate Fashion Week and Holly Fulton through our mentorship programme which combines two of our passions, fashion and fostering emerging talent. Good luck to all graduates participating at Graduate Fashion Week this year, we look forward to viewing your collections and supporting your career in the fashion industry." – James Brown, Sainsbury’s Director of Non-Food Trading.
“I am excited to be involved with Sainsbury's Graduate Fashion Week mentorship scheme; when I started out I was lucky enough to be given lots of support from industry and engage with some key mentors who still guide me today. It’s great to be given the opportunity to be involved with a new talent and to be hopefully help guide them through their first foray into industry and I look forward to working closely with the winner.” – Holly Fulton, Graduate Fashion Week patron.
Graduate Fashion Week takes place from 5th-8th June and the winner of the Graduate Fashion Week 25th Anniversary Tu Scholarship mentored by Holly Fulton will be announced on 8 June 2016.
