Virtual Graduate Fashion Week has a new home… and new dates
Graduate Fashion Week is on the move. Organiser Graduate Fashion Foundation (GFF) is moving the BA Fashion talent showcase to one of London’s newest and brightest shopping developments — Coal Drops Yard in King’s Cross. The new home also comes with new dates — 12-18 June.
The industry event, celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, will showcase "the brightest graduate fashion talent across 26 fashion specialisms", GFF said.
It added: “Graduate Fashion Week will use the spectacular location and venues to create digital live-streamed content and host hybrid events to showcase the work of some of the most exciting creative talents of tomorrow from UK and International universities”.
The virtual event is again partnering with Coal Drops Yard-based Samsung KX, which will host an exhibition. This will feature “inspiring student designs amplified with virtual displays on Samsung latest technology and be home to an Industry Private View, giving the new graduates the valuable visibility they need".
GFF president Hilary Alexander said: “Once again Covid-19 restrictions are creating huge obstacles for our Class of 2021, greatly impacting their final year of studies. However, just as we have been for the last 30 years, Graduate Fashion Week will be there as their studies conclude to ensure their work is celebrated and elevated to the industry they aspire to work in.
"Their resilience and creativity at a time of adversity is something we should all be looking forward to celebrating. We look forward to be able to bring Graduate Fashion Week to its audiences in a new and innovative way with our hybrid event and live streaming opportunities”.
The event schedule will be revealed this spring.
