I received them through the uni that I will attend in September, The University for the Creative Arts and I couldn’t be more excited! Graduate Fashion Week is THE event and only major showcase for graduates in the world, making it one of the most exciting fashion events of the year! I love seeing new up and coming talent and what could be newer or fresher than someone straight out of uni?

The exhibition includes talks from Mary Katrantzou, Henry Holland, Imran Ahmed, Susie Bubble; Industry experts such as Melanie Rickey, designers from Debenhams, PR experts and tons more speakers on subjects within the industry as widespread as blogging and PR to CV construction and Interview techniques.

The even runs for four days from this Sunday 2nd June through Wednesday 5th June and there are a limited number of tickets for GFW left so hurry over to the website now to secure yours!
