Now in its 26th year, Graduate Fashion Week brings the latest emerging talent to the world’s attention, showcasing the fashion innovators of tomorrow with a four-day event in London this 4th – 7th June 2017. The show is supported by 13 Global Ambassadors and four Lifetime Patrons including Christopher Bailey MBE, Victoria Beckham OBE, Vivienne Westwood DBE RBI and Nick Knight OBE, and is the largest platform in the world for new BA fashion talent, highlighting upcoming stars in design, creative direction, marketing, communication, photography, illustration and all aspects of the modern business of fashion.
To kick off this year’s campaign, Graduate Fashion Week has photographed designs by eight aspiring designers from British GFW member universities. The shoot took place at the home of Graduate Fashion Week, The Old Truman Brewery in Shoreditch, which will once again host this year’s event.
The graduates chosen to debut their work in the photoshoot this season – Maddie Williams, Kate Clark, Frankie Dean, Sophie Hampson, Alicja Teper, Liam Falcus, Jamie Backshall and Ellen Fowles – embody diverse influences, cultural backgrounds and unique styles. Martyn Roberts, Managing & Creative Director of Graduate Fashion Week, said: “The work being produced this year is of the highest calibre and the campaign is truly extraordinary, reflecting the talent on show at Graduate Fashion Week.”
