Shoreditch welcomes the class of 2018 for the biggest showcase of BA Fashion in the world from 3rd - 6th June. East London’s trendy Truman Brewery will accelerate in eccentricity as students from over 60 leading Universities unleash their creations for the renowned Graduate Fashion Week.
Fortified with limitless creativity and diversity, around 1,000 people will exhibit endless innovations as their exclusive designs are paraded down 25 unique catwalk shows; with a hefty 30,000 guests expected to attend the largest annual showcase of its kind. Workshops and talks from high-flying industry brands, including Gap, John Lewis and Boohoo will also take place as well as Iconic model Twiggy being in conversation with Hilary Alexander OBE! Mary Portas is also scheduled to give an insight into a life within the world of fashion and designer Richard Quinn will also be in attendance speaking to Sam Conti – maybe about the time the Queen showed up to one of his events!
From illustration to design, photography and more, students will also have the potential to be scouted by a well-known design and fashion house as industry experts search for tomorrow’s talent and inspiration. Christopher Bailey MBE, Stella McCartney; Giles Deacon, Julien Macdonald and Matthew Williamson are just some of the most successful and influential designers whose careers were propelled from the previous events. Spanning over international waters, 50 foreign universities are now participating and include talent from Australia, USA, China and Russia.
