Thank God for Graduate Fashion Week! I've been desperately trying to fill the void since the fashion week in London ended. So I'll definitely be attending next week's Gala Awards Show to check out the new, up and coming designers. Graduate Fashion Week is being presented by retailer River Island and this year we will see the celebration of work by more than 1000 of the best BA Degree fashion students.
The exhibition opens to the public on Sunday the 7th of June and this event is a must-go-see for the latest emerging fashion talent. Last year, Jessica Au picked up the coveted award for her quirky eccentric collection. Off the back of her win, she currently designs for River Island and has her sights firmly set on establishing her own label and distributing internationally.
There will be some big names at the graduate fashion gala, including a star studded panel to judge the designers battling it out for the prestigious Gold Award; Fashion guru Matthew Williamson, Giles Deacon and Editor in Chief of Elle Lorraine Candy will grace the panel hot seats. The prize for this year's winner is a super sweet £20,000 and the announcement will take place on the 10th of June at Earls Court 2. Public open day tickets are available from £5.00.
