Graduate Fashion Week 2008Wednesday, 28 May 2008
A new addition for 2008 is the Fashion Innovation Award. This Award will embrace everything from exhibition/product development to new techniques in thinking and manufacture. Colleges will be invited to submit one entry only and it has been designed to provide a symbolic bridge between the existing divisions of GFW.
It will be a first for the fashion showcase to introduce the new Graduate Fashion Week Education Day on Thursday, 12 June. The educational day will target 14-18 year old school children and those at FE Colleges. The day will be dedicated to the university courses offering a day of research, catwalk shows and careers education.
GFW is open to the general public and everyone has the opportunity to sit alongside international fashion editors, recruiters and talent scouts. Last year’s guests included Victoria Beckham, Lanvin's Alber Elbaz, Mulberry’s Stuart Vevers, Zandra Rhodes, Jimmy Choo OBE, Hilary Alexander (Daily Telegraph), Suzy Menkes (International Herald Tribune).
