Graduate Fashion Week is a charitable organisation founded in 1991 by Jeff Banks CBE, Vanessa Denza MBE and John Walford to unify both UK and international universities and create a stronghold for the creative industries.
Showcasing the work of over 1,000 of the very best students and graduates from the most influential and inspiring universities around the world, Graduate Fashion Week represents the future of creative design talent. Attracting 30,000 guests each June, the annual event features 22 catwalk shows, exhibitions from over 40 universities and an acclaimed Gala Award Show, alongside packed live talks and workshops schedule featuring leading names from the fashion industry.
Disorder Magazine has been a media partner for Graduate Fashion Week for over 8 years, with Disorder producing a special edition of the magazine dedicated entirely to that year’s graduating talent every year. Disorder works directly with the young graduates and their colleges to shoot each collection individually. These special editions of the magazine help provide a springboard for the graduates looking to move into the Fashion Industry for employment.
Graduate Fashion Week is an unrivalled platform for the promotion of new talent, bridging the gap between graduation and employment and is responsible for launching the careers of some of the most successful designers of our time including Christopher Bailey, winner of the first ever Graduate Fashion Week Gold Award, Stella McCartney, Giles Deacon, Matthew Williamson and Julien Macdonald.
