In case you haven’t heard Graduate Fashion Week is nearly upon on us! Wait you don’t know what Graduate Fashion Week is? No worries man, GFW is an annual event that takes place near the end of the university academic year. This year the event will be taking place from the 30th May to 2nd June at the Truman Brewery East London. Over 40 universities will take part of which 19 will showcase their collections during the period.

Graduate Fashion week is a platform for fashion design students across UK universities to show their final (third year) collections. Not only does GFW give an opportunity to designers studying in UK but also at the International Catwalk Show some of the world’s leading fashion college/ university students will get a chance to showcase their collections at an international level.

On Tuesday the 2nd of June, 25 of the best collections will be selected to participate at the Best of Graduate Fashion Week. Not to forget the awards! The GFW awards are iconic! There are awards in many categories including Fashion Marketing, Styling, David Band Textiles, Womenswear and Menswear but the one you want to win is the George Gold award. Previous winners include Giles Deacon, Stella McCartney and Matthew Williamson.

Basically Graduate fashion is a BIG deal! For students it’s an opportunity to gain some recognition, to get people exciting and talking about you whether it’s buyers, press or fellow designers. It also gets Disorder hyped too, that’s why we’re one of the media partners! We will be bringing you the most opinionated, extensive and juiciest coverage, plus our very own photographer Darren Black will capture the deets for you so keep an eye out!

The best part is that it’s open to the public – that is, of course, if you buy a ticket. Grab them while you can here.
