About Us

The Graduate Fashion Foundation charity bridges the gap between education and employment.

Our mission is to bring together fashion educators and industry leaders to support new graduates in reaching their full potential once they have finished university.

In 2021 we celebrated 30 years of being one of the world's most important sources of new talent for the global fashion industry. More than 100,000 graduated and undergraduate students have been supported and guided by our charity, and our aim is still the same today.

Graduate Fashion Week International

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

This year we partnered with International Member University Pearl Academy, to elevate exceptional talents from our international member institutes to a global audience. We facilitated 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."
