River Island presented the 2009 Graduate Fashion Week which held its final gala shows last night as a part of its 18th year of awarding fashion students exposure. The arena was pulsating with photographer’s flashes, excitement, music, and the gorgeous collections of the students. Supermodel Claudia Schiffer, designer Matthew Williamson, as well as many fashion mag editors including Dylan Jones, editor-in-chief of GQ, Lucy Yeomans, EIC of Harpar’s Bazaar, and Lorraine Candy, editor of Elle, presented awards to the most promising of students. 

On the runway were classic styles, eclectic styles, and styles we can’t even name. Designer Myrto Samou took home the River Island Gold Award for her collection that Matthew Williamson himself said held the most promise. The show was a complete success, and River Island CEO Richard Bradbury announced the company will be sponsoring the shows 19th year in 2010. All in all, it was an absolutely lovely evening. There’s nothing like a night of being surrounded by beautiful models in even more beautiful clothing and sipping a glass of wine while holding my swag bag.
