Graduate Fashion Week International

The inaugural GFWi will be taking place from Thursday 13th to Sunday 16th of October in Mumbai, India!

This year we are partnering with International Member University Pearl Academy to elevate exceptional talents from our international member institutes to a global audience. We will facilitate important conversations around fashion education and the future of the fashion industry worldwide with live talks, webinars, and a catwalk showcase at Lakmé Fashion Week.

Our International Trustee, and International Director of Education at Accademia Costume & Moda Adrien Roberts has said "For over 30 years Graduate Fashion Week has been the world's biggest exhibition of undergraduate fashion talent, elevating some of the most exciting creative talents of tomorrow and our International Catwalk Showcase has been an intrinsic part of that event for the past 10 years. For the graduates of today, fashion is a global community with inspiration and talent emerging from institutes across the world and as a global community we can't continue to remain only in London, the time has come to decentralise fashion and further our inclusivity. We look forward to starting this new journey in Mumbai with Pearl."
