FatFace has announced the winners of its Graduate Fashion Week competition.

Students from all over the UK entered into the competition, which tasked them with designing a unisex t-shirt that embodied FatFace's style and brand.

The panel of judges included designers Henry Holland, Christopher Raeburn and Holly Fulton, plus journalist Hilary Alexander OBE and FatFace's Director of Design Emma Shaw.

After much deliberation, the panel selected four winning designs: Hannah Morley, from the University of Central Lancashire; Harriet Bornemann, from Norwich University of the Arts; Kirsty Walmsley, from UCA Rochester; and Lauren Smith, from Leeds Arts University. 

These four designs will be seen at the Best of Graduate Fashion Week catwalk show on Wednesday 6th June at London's Old Truman Brewery. 

Emma Shaw, FatFace's Director of Design, said on the competition: Home grown talent has been integral to the growth of FatFace over the past 30 years, which has taken us from a small company selling t-shirts out of a campervan to a global multi-channel brand.

"We look forward to supporting the four winning designers in the first steps of their exciting careers."

The four winning unisex t-shirt designs are available in selected FatFace stores nationwide and online at now.

They are available in sizes XS-XXXL and are priced at £25.00. A percentage of the profits from the sale of the t-shirts will go to Graduate Fashion Week, to continue with its support of emerging design talent.

Graduate Fashion Week 2018 is taking place at the Old Truman Brewery between 3rd and 6th June. The National Student will be reporting from the event daily - see all our coverage here.
