With a new title sponsor (George at Asda), this year’s Graduate Fashion Week is celebrating the work of more than 1,000 of the finest Degree Fashion students from 50 Universities across the UK and overseas this June.

This fashion week serves as an opportunity for graduates to explore different careers in the fashion industry and in 2010, GFW attracted attendance from fashion industry faces such as Alberta Ferretti, Kim Jones, Erin O’Connor, Zandra Rhodes, Nicola Robert, and Emma Hill.

The Chairman of GFW, Terry Mansfield CBE, said this is the industry’s and public’s chance to see and understand the importance of supporting British fashion education system.

“Graduate Fashion Week is the starting point for the future of British Fashion,” he said. “It is an event that has an impact on not just our home grown style, but that of the world.”

Graduate Fashion Week’s Gold Award, the most prestigious and sought after Award in fashion education, offers a life-changing prize of £20,000.

As a charity, Graduate Fashion Week relies on its sponsors to ensure the event continues, such as Mulberry, L’Oréal Professionnel, Rimmel London and Karen Millen.

Protégé Project is also a part of Graduate Fashion week and it offers new graduates their first step onto the career ladder. The campaign was a huge success in 2010 and resulted in a number of permanent jobs being offered. GFW is continuing to recruit new companies for 2011’s campaign.

The exhibition is open to public from 5-8th June at Earls Court 2 in London.
